Yeah I hate laundry too. As I am usually out for three weeks to a month I have all of that to do when I get home again.

I think I am going to start doing parts of it out here on the road as I get free time. Better than spending my whole week off doing laundry.

Wow Mason, I didn't realize you were on the road for such long chunks of time! That would really make the laundry pile up. My problem is that I have a stacking washer/dryer, and they are TINY. I'm a bigger girl, and being a bigger girl, I have bigger clothes. I'm forever doing laundry because I can only wash like 2 pairs of jeans and a sweatshirt in one cycle. Total PITA.

I know what you mean. I also have a small machine. It does both washing and drying in the one unit, don't have to move the clothes from one machine to another but also means you can't wash a load while a load is drying. Laundry takes forever, but it doesn't take up much space.

Just make sure everyone has some clothes for tomorrow and shut the door to the laundry room!!! I HATE laundry with a passion. Two toddlers and my husband and I = at least 3 loads a day. Needless to say I don't do it everyday I normally wait till everything is dirty and everyone is begging for clothes. But the laundry room is in the back of the house so a least I can shut it out and forget about it for a while

ROFL!! None of my "men" (my husband and my two boys ages 6 and 7) had socks!! UGH!

I feel your pain, I have three kids and a hubby who wears "work" clothes and "play" clothes. My problem was I took 2 days off (Monday was my birthday and I don't do housework on my birthday except waht HAS to be done) and i paid the piper yesterday.
