I don't mind doing laundry as long as we keep on top of it. It's usually one load a day. DH will not fold, so I make him put up. The sheet issue...I keep buying Egyptian cotton sheets, I can't get enough. But I have finally gotten the folding thing right with the fitted ones. You fold the pockets into each other, then fold in just the rounded elastic edges, then you have a nice neat rectangle. DH has a problem with leaving ink pens in his pockets. And they always end up in the same load as my brand new work clothes.
Anyway I am really quick at folding as long as it's only one load at a time. I also don't have kids yet.
It's the dishes I have. Squishy bits of wet food on your hands. And DH insists that we must wash the dishes before they can go into the dishwasher. Yech.
