It Is Time To Tackle That Dirty Laundry

Updated on April 21, 2011

We all Do It But Few Talk About it

We were busy all week and the our dirty clothes start to pile up

They look like little monuments when separated

From work clothes to darks and then there are the whites

They are a sore sight

There goes three hours of my day

If you have children you know this routine very well

A daily ritual that can bring the most dedicated moms to their knees

A task that has to be done

Faithfully without a lot of recognition

I do the laundry and my wife does the cooking

It might be different than most households

I have work pants that are just disgusting

Covered in who knows what

My wifes work clothes look so clean I want to hang them back up and say they are all washed and dried

Just give them a few sprits of frebreeze and throw them in the dryer for affect

Then there are all the whites and the towels that take the longest to dry

I use to love those big fluffy terry cloth towels but no more

They are so thick I have to do more loads because they are so big

Soon the piles will disappear and new piles will be stacked

These are good clothes clean and fresh ready to be put away and used again

The endless rat race that we all face

One that is hidden in every home across the country and through out the world

If someone else washed all our clothes that would be a real treat

Homemakers across the country that do laundry for elderly or the handicapped I give great gratitude

For my piles of dirty clothes and smelly socks can pack a whallop

That I am forced to do

When all is said and done

There is nothing like the smell of clean sheets and the wonderful sweet aroma of freshness

That makes us forget the dirty task we had to undertake

Until next time when our clothes connected end to end form a chain link fence made of cloth that desperately needs to be washed

There is hope

If I can train my cat to do my laundry then I can relax and sit back and have the afternoon off

      Blessings Dream on I do not favor washing because my dryer broke and I need to lug it to a dryer. The good news is I was given a dryer last week. Praise God. He is so good. Nothing like curling up in fresh sheets with the peace of God on your heart. Hugs Gaolore

      Oh l loved this. l feel so similar about washing clothes., then ther´s ironing and putting away and then you have to do it all again...

      If you manage to train your cat, let me know, or better still, write a book on ´How to get your cat to do the laundry¨ You´ll make a fortune.!!!
