An ode to laundry

Oh endless pile on laundry
Piled high upon my couch
I hate, despise, and loathe thee
Do I sound much like a grouch?

Its not the sorting and washing
That seems to bother me so.
It’s the folding, hanging, and putting away
Shoe shopping I must go.

Of course, there are the mishaps,
That really bother my being
The dreaded red sock or forgotten receipt
Their absence would be so freeing!

Sometimes I don’t check the pockets
even though I know I should.
Toys, pennies, and gum I find
Oh, ruined clothes are just no good.

My underwear is now part blue
With blobs of pink and green.
Ellie Kate says crayons are cool!!!
But they just don’t get clothes clean.

Maybe I shouldn't be blogging,
but folding my pile instead.
Maybe I'll wait until Ben gets home
"I want to help," I think he once said.
Please tell me I’m not alone
In my hate for all things laundry
Go away big, heaping pile!
Oh relieve me from this quandary!

Too cute, and too true!! Today is my laundry day, so I am feeling your pain.

That's what my couch looks like today! :)

If I had a billion dollars, I would so pay someone to do the laundry for me. That and the grocery shopping. And the dusting...

You are so talented... Hahah, it was so nice to have a new post to laugh at after I finished my F-O-U-R, count them: 1, 2, 3, 4 loads tonight! What am I going to do when we add another child?! I hate it too, you aren't alone :) Washing is not all that bad, but sorting, throwing in the dryer and folding/putting up stinks big time! Glad I'm not alone
