Laundry questions

Have you even noticed that laundry never ends?  Just when you think you are caught up something smelly and /or dirty mysteriously appears?  I often wonder, "How can two people generate so much laundry?"

Since my house is up for sale, tonight  I find myself doing laundry on a Friday night.  Can it really be that I need to wash the sheets?  Did I  really skip washing them last weekend?  And where did all of those smelly towels come from? Where is the laundry fairy when I need her?  She must have left for a warmer, sunnier spot.

I am really not a super picky about my house.  But it does need to be picked up and relatively neat and clean if prospective buyers are going to be walking through it this weekend.

I just don't get it.  We are not real slobs.  But it has been an extra busy week.  There was that night that I fell asleep on the couch and missed  the news. When I woke up the prime time shows were on TV.  And last night we weren't home until late.  So I guess it has been 5 or 6 days since I thought about keeping up with the laundry.  Maybe it has been 8 or 9 days.  Hm... But really, where does all of this laundry come from?


  1. Yes, where does it come from! I like how you are not sure when the last time you did laundry was. It seems like it is all finished...and then...there it is...a stack of (as you said so well) stinky or smelly laundry waiting to be washed. Jackie

  2. Where does the laundry come from as it piles up? And the piles of papers on the counter? I really should get working on them, but I'm waiting for the house fairy to come through at night. Good luck selling your house.

  3. And where do the socks disappear to?

  4. I so know what you mean. There are four of us here. I have to do a load a day if I even stand a chance to keep up. Even so, it seems there is still a large pile of towels, sheets, and rugs that need to be cycled in as well. Thankfully, last month I got a new washer and dryer. Wow, they're so much faster ---- and everything smells so delightful. Doing laundry is a pain, but there is little in life that is better than the smell of clean of laundry.
