“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!
