Sometimes it Takes Me Three Weeks to Fold the Laundry

Laundry in my house usually looks something like this:


But no more.


This time I'm going to...








I just need to stop for a second because I have to go to the bathroom.

And I'm thirsty.

And I need a snack.

And while I'm upstairs, I know what I should do! I should add "fold the laundry" to my to-do list. It's going to feel so good to check it off when I'm done. Just let me hop on my computer and add "fold the laundry" to my to-do list. And then I'll go back downstairs and fold more than three things.

And while I'm on the computer, I'm just going to check my email really quickly. I'm just going to see if I have any. I'm not even going to read it. And then I'm going straight back downstairs to...

Oooooooooh... New Cake Wrecks post!






Two Hours Later

Oh.

Right.

Laundry.



I'll do it tomorrow.










I will slay you, laundry monster.

Be afraid.

You're on my to-do list.

  1. I'll send you my husband - he insists that the laundry monster never even get a foothold in the house! He'll even help with the folding. Then he'll pretend that he can't figure out my storage of clothes method and leave all my stuff in a pile on my side of the bed. (See why I want to send him to you?)

  2. Hee! I love your toothy laundry monster! And your plasticine laundry heap. So adorable. I mean, threatening.

  3. So, so true. I'm working up the courage to conquer that monster myself. Unfortunately, a kitchen construction project has spread dust on every surface in the house. Including the linen closet. And all my sheets.

  4. That sounds like me except with school work. :(

  5. @areyoukiddingme: Actually, my husband's much tidier than I am. We always say that his OCD cancels out my ADHD. Ha!

    @Detour: threatening. Threatening's definitely the word that you're looking for.

    @ourlackoffamilyproblem - Well, then, there's really no point in folding, is there? ;)

    @DWei - I won't even address my inability to do any school work as a student.

  6. OMG - we must be related! This is so me!

    If my husband didn't take of the laundry (he even does the ironing!) I would succumb to the laundry monster.

    1. I could do a whole post about ironing! Except that the mere thought of ironing depresses me. Ha! (And yes, i realize that responding to you nearly a month after the date pretty much guarantees that you'll never see this.)

  7. Stephanie! LOL! This is SO like me!!!!!! :) Do you mind if I share it on my blog 'Life in pink pyjamas? I will share the post but if you want me to I will remove it. I suffer from anxiety and depression and this is just the sort of thing that puts my experiences into prospective and helps me to cope....Thank you :) x

    1. Please do! I'd be honoured! And I'd say I'm glad I'm not the only one, but I wouldn't wish a laundry monster on anyone... ;)

  8. I just read this!! Love reading posts that make me smile the whole time thinking "that is me, that is totally me"
    I am a pretty good housekeeper, but not when it comes to Laundry. It leaves my husband very perplexed. I can have OCD about dishes, or counter tops, but not about cobwebs or LAUNDRY. I have NOCD- (Non-existent OCD) when it comes to my 'Laundry Mountain' Atleast mine is a scenic mountain, not a toothy monster. But both are awful.Some Junior High science wiz needs to seriously invent a Laundry Folding, Putt'er' Away'er' machine!

    1. Ha @ NOCD. My whole life is one big bout of NOCD! But I do like that your laundry is a scenic mountain instead of a monster. I need to work a bit more on my visualising skills.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! Honestly, folding laundry is completely overrated.
