For anyone that knows me, they know that I never have really liked laundry. To me it is an endless job! I have been trying to change my attitude, and just do it! :) Today I realized I am actually to the point, that I am washing throw rugs! I am almost giddy over this! :) I thought it would be appropriate to show pictures of the laundry room. I finally can see all of the counter tops! Yiipeee Skiipeeee! Is there one chore in your home that you just have never cared for? I also thought I would ask for laundry tips. I am trying to make this dreaded job a little more exiting! hee hee.

Hi - I'm Jennifer, Carolee's friend. This post caught my attention as I was surfing friend's of friend's blogs. Laundry is the one job that I LIKE. Now you know I'm crazy. I like all the sorting. I love the smell of fabric softener & dryer sheets (Downy April Fresh is my FAVORITE) on warm clothes. I like folding everything so it fits just right in the drawers. I like that the machine does most of the work and I can do other stuff while the job is getting done. I like that I can fold while sitting and watching tv. I will confess that I HATE putting away the laundry & my children dump their clothes into their drawers as if it was NEVER folded. So I'm not sure why I bother. I plan two different laundry days (Monday & Thursday). I try to do towels on one of those days, but I forget to wash the sheets as often as I ought.

Anyway, that was a LONG comment from a complete stranger.

P.S. Nice harvest photo on the background of your blog.

Laundry and the word exciting do not go together. I dont mind doing the laundry, it is the putting away I hate. I actually have the kids do it, but that is also a chore:).
Your laundry room looks fabulous!

laundry isnt too big of a deal for me..mine is upstairs (which REALLY HELPS!)and its usually always done (i typically do 2-3 loads per day) i ONLY do darks and whites..thats it, nothing in between..i also ONLY use hot water when doing whites with bleach, otherwise its all cold water...

maybe you could do it naked??!! but then that might create having to do another "chore" with the hubby!! JUST KIDDING!!

my LEAST favorite chore is mopping all this DARK HARD WOOD FLOOR! it never lasts...
