PHOTO CHALLENGE: LAUNDRY DAY – Marilyn Armstrong

Photo Challenge Laundry Day


Laundry waits for you!

It turns out that the trick to not doing a lot of laundry is to have a lot of underwear and socks. You can wear a shirt and pants again, even when it’s got a lot of dog hair on it … but underwear, well. You can’t just keep wearing it. It gets a bit … close.

Done and folded. Until the next time.

Garry does the laundry these days and he is the world’s best folder of clothing. It’s amazing. He can also iron, but he only irons for himself. I have to grovel to get him to iron anything. But these days, I mostly don’t care.

That neat pressed look which was so important during working years doesn’t seem important when the only company we have — most days — are dogs.

  1. I have an entire drawer full of undies and an entire drawer full of socks for that very reason. I only have to do one load of laundry per week, plus undies and socks every two months or so (Yes, my supply is that large). As for folding….. well, I’ll just say that I do my laundry every Wednesday night and oftentimes don’t get it out of the dryer until Friday afternoon. And if I’m in a real lazy mood, it’ll just sit in the basket all week rather than get hung up. Neat freak, I am not….

    • We used to leave it in baskets, but then the cats — and now the dogs — used to decide it was a good place to nap, which ruined the whole “clean” concept. But even doing it now every 10 days to 2 weeks? It’s still not such a huge deal. We don’t bother to get dressed up so we can sit around with the dogs and if we are — once in a blue moon — dressing for something, we try to escape as quickly as possible before the dogs greet us. ALL our clothing is hairy, even things that have never been out of the closet. That hair sort of floats, you know?

      I figure one more round of socks and panties and I’m good for three weeks easy. I’m good on two these days.

  2. Yes, always have enough underwear to last at least a week. I don’t iron much any more, my good pants and the occasional top and pillowcases if I’m in the mood.

  3. I’m with you on the underwear and socks!! I always make sure we’ve got 2 weeks worth just in case!!

  4. I am lucky that all my men can iron. If they actually do it is something else, although the items are often neatly folded and dealt with without me.
