Laundry.  Just the slightest mention of that dreaded word can bring a woman to tears!  It is a never ending, boring task that is oh so necessary.  Now, I must say that the act of simply starting laundry and then putting it into the dryer is cake.  It is the folding, hanging and putting away that kills me!  In a typical week, I do roughly 7 loads of laundry, sometimes less, sometimes more.  Is that normal for a family a four?  If not, please don't tell me.

For several months, I have been doing my laundry either once a week or maybe twice a week.  I was miserable and grew tired of watching the dirty clothes pile up.  Last week, I decided to do one load of laundry each day.  What a relief!  I have found it quite refreshing to have an empty laundry basket each day. 

In closing, I want to say how thankful I am to have a washing machine and dryer to make my job a breeze.  It is too easy to complain about what we must do rather than looking at how much we have.  I am blessed to have clothes to wash and appliances to do it all.  Thank you Lord for your wonderful blessings....even the ones I often overlook.

How do you approach laundry in your homes?
