Thankful for Laundry!

Today has been a very rainy and windy day. I haven't liked it, even though I know that we desperately need the rain. Yesterday was very beautiful, nearly 70 degrees, but I wasn't feeling very well so I didn't get out and enjoy it.

I really need to get started on spring cleaning soon. I wanted to get organized, it was one of my new years resolutions, but it hasn't happened yet. I want to start tackling a task every week. I have seen other bloggers, writing about what they tackle every week and I need to start. I'm not exactly sure what to tackle first though. Right now I need to tackle that ugly pile of laundry staring at me saying, "Fold me".

I hate laundry. It never, ever, ends. When I think I'm caught up I turn around and there it is again, just as big as before. I don't mind the washing and drying, it's not that hard to put into a machine and turn on. But i HATE folding and putting away. I don't know how others feel about this, but its just so boring. But I am trying to go about laundry and any other dreaded household task with a thankful heart. I am thankful that I have a family to laundry for, that we live in a house, we have our own washing mashine and dryer, and we have running water. I don't have to go beat my clothes against a rock down by the creek. I am also thankful that we have nice clothes to wash. We don't have expensive, designer clothes. Our clothes come from Walmart, Target or thrift stores and yard sales, but we have clothing to keep us warm and dry.

Okay I have convinced myself that I am ready to tackle that huge pile of laundry that is stairing at me and I will do it with a smile on my face (Right after I play on the computer a little longer):)
Happy Folding!!

You didn't get that from me. I love doing laundry! (Most of the time) I love it with my new auto washer and dryer but more than that I love doing laundry on my wringer washer and hanging it on the line to dry. Maybe you would like to do laundry too if you had a clothesline outside!

No I didn't inherit your love for laundry. I wish I did. I would defiantly like a clothesline that would help me on my thrifty mission, but we would not have any clothes left because of all the dogs in the neighborhood. Maybe we could have an amish style line running from the barn to the house:)
