If there’s one housekeeping duty I am perpetually failing at, it is keeping up with our family’s laundry. We have a huge laundry room with plenty of room for folding, which also means there is plenty of room to let those six dozen hampers quietly fester while I close the door.
I think my biggest issue is in the all-or-nothing approach I take to it. I am fine with keeping the clothes moving through the washer to the dryer, but after that I toss them in the hamper and wait a month to fold them. Then I have to spend half the day chained to the overwhelming heaps of it all and I hate it. If only I could do (and actually fold and put away!) a load a day, I would not have this problem. Alas.
What is your most-dreaded chore? The one you’re always wishing you were better at?
