Homeschool Memoirs #25: How Many Loads?

Oooh, oooh, oooh....this is one of my favorite subjects....or rather, one of my favorites to hate! Laundry!
I found this photo on the Internet. It's called Death by Laundry. How fitting!
Well - over at The Homeschool Post, this week's theme is all about laundry.
We have five in the household now. With two being grown and gone it makes the laundry a little easier - or I should say, it SHOULD make the laundry a little easier.
Of course, those of you who follow my blog know that I HATE laundry. Sometimes, though, I'll get on a roll and actually get it caught up - folding, putting away, and all! But - sadly, that's a rare occassion, much to my husband's chagrin.
When things are going well, though, this is how we do it:
Monday: L's day for laundry
Tuesday: My day for laundry
Wednesday: E's day for laundry
Thursday: A's day for laundry (but since she's only 4 it falls on me!)
Friday: Towels and whatever is left.
Weekend: Absolutely NOOOO laundry will be done by my hand. I refuse!!
I have to say that my husband does his share. He is so sweet... ;)


  1. You know, I hate laundry too. Everytime I tell myself that I'm going to get caught up, I end up not folding every load or not putting them away and then my husband rifles through them so I have to re-fold anyway. Yuck!

  2. Sometimes I think laundry is the bane of my existence. ITS NEVER DONE!!!!!!

  3. LOL, I'm with you - definitely not a fan of laundry. With hubby being a farmer/grazier he's out all day just collecting burrs in his socks (well that's how it seems!). And the children seem to take great delight in putting a new outfit on every five minutes because the one they previously had on suddenly became 'dirty'. And we won't go to my ironing pile - its frequently large enough to crush a small child!!!
