I’ve always been the one to do the laundry at my house. I’m not for sure how that came about, but it has always been like that since my wife moved in with me. I think she has some sort of power that made me believe that I had decided that I would do the laundry every week. When things started out, it wasn’t that big of a deal so I didn’t complain.
Then my little angel came along. Greatest thing that has ever happened to my little family. She is wonderful. However, she came with an unseen problem. Fluffy clothes. Why oh why would anyone make clothes that take a century to dry?
Oh but it doesn’t stop with clothes, blankets (the ogre of the bedding) were added to the mix. Everything so soft and fluffy, great for her, hell on Dad working with the dryer. It’s not like you can put multiple blankets together and hope they dry in one quick run through the dryer on tumble. Nope it takes three cycles for the blankets to get dry.
Ok, so three cycles don’t sound that bad, but when you have other clothes to wash, they can be a major problem for all those wonderful socks and jeans waiting for those damn blankets. Hell, I have to plan how to wash my clothes more strategically then I did when I planned cargo for planes in the military! I only have so much time to get the work done, it’s not like the weekend is going to wait for me to finish. It moves right along and the next thing you know the weekend is over and the right clothes never make it into the wash. I know I can’t be alone in this world of clothing that thinks the tumble dry setting was created so that the sock gnomes can laugh at me from afar.
Sock gnomes…..now there is another topic.
Do you ever have this problem? Am I all alone in my laundry woes? What do you do to layout your laundry schedule? I love to hear from you!
