Most moms I talk to hate laundry. The way it piles up, the way it's never done, the way it seems to multiply.
Me? I've never minded laundry much. I wash it all one day, let it pile up in baskets, then fold it the next. Folding laundry is about the only time I watch videos, so it's almost a treat to settle down for several hours and fold. I used to do all the laundry once a week, but the piles became too enormous and overwhelming, so now I wash on Mondays and Thursdays and fold on Tuesdays and Fridays. It always amazes me how many loads I can wash, though, even doing it twice a week. Yesterday, I folded 8 baskets of clothes. My thoughts started wandering towards speculating how much laundry there would be when we have six teenagers at home plus other children. I had to tell my mind to change the subject, as I began to feel a bit overwhelmed.
But while laundry is no big deal to me, what I really hate doing is cleaning my hard floors. I don't mind vacuuming, but mopping?
When we built our house, we put in a rather large kitchen area, with space for several tables when we have guests. We also put in lots of laminate flooring, which is fairly indestructible and fairly easy to clean. In addition to the kitchen, we have about five rooms with hard floors and over 1000 square feet of it. With seven messy kids wandering in and out, the floors get pretty dirty really quickly. I love everything about my big kitchen, until it comes time to clean the floors. I don't know why I hate it, but I do.
So what housework do you hate the most?
