I don’t know about you, but doing laundry is probably one of my least favorite things to do. Actually, that is not entirely true since there are several steps involved in ‘doing laundry’. Step one: putting the clothes into the washer and pouring in the detergent and bleach is not a problem for me. As a matter of fact, I love it when the smell of bleach lingers in each room giving the illusion of a freshly cleaned house.
But, that is as far as it goes! Steps two, three, four, etc. up to folding the clothes and putting them all away only to be worn and washed again are just not enjoyable for me. I can’t even say that I get a sense of accomplishment when my laundry basket is finally emptied.
Why is it that most laundry rooms don’t have windows? Wouldn’t sorting, washing, drying, ironing, and folding be just a bit more enjoyable if there was a glow of natural lighting filtering through some sheer curtains? Instead, I am left with two options – avoiding my responsibilities by exiting through the garage door or entering the kitchen to deal with other issues (that is a topic for another post).
In the meantime, I did a little decorating in there to lighten the tone…
