Laundry

     “Not again,” these are my words pretty much every evening.  It piles up and never goes away.  I dread this time of my evening.  I find folding and putting away clothes to be a complete waste of my time.  I could be playing with my kids, sipping coffee, taking a walk, watching some TV, scanning Facebook, talking to my husband, or reading a good book, but unfortunately I dedicate this time to Laundry.  Like I said, I have no choice.  Watching it pile up creates anxiety within and the aroma of the hamper tells me it’s time. 

     So now I began to think how I can make Laundry time fun.  Last night during laundry time, I put music on and sang around the house.  I am pretty sure the others were thinking I had lost my mind.  Music and singing made the time go faster and I didn’t feel like it was such a waste of my time.  I didn’t realize that my attitude about laundry may have been the reason I hate doing it so much.  So from now on, laundry time, will somehow become “fun time” in the VIGIL household!
