It’s a great way to catch your breath at the end of a long week."

The Prompt: LAUNDRY


I'm sorry, laundry? What? How can I twist laundry into something inspiring? Wow. This sucks.  Everyone else will probably talk about how she's so grateful to have laundry to do because it means her family has warm clothes, that she HAS a family to dress, blech.  I hate laundry.


Like, if there was a way to double the all caps, that's what I would do.

I have four kids. That's a shit ton of laundry.  And I live in London, so my machine fits a pair of jeans and one sock. We have two machines, and if we didn't, I think I would have had to move back to the states.

Three loads a day.  That's what it takes to keep up with a family of six in these tiny ass machines.  And I keep up for the most part because I'm boring and never leave the house, so there's plenty of time to throw the loads in.  But the folding and putting away? GAG ME.

Then, the worst part, if I'm sick or busy or grumpy and get even one day, nay- ONE LOAD behind, if I do two one day instead of three? That's it, game over, I'm behind for two weeks.

So forget it, I have nothing inspiring to say about laundry.  I hate it.  HATE IT.


Time's up.  Which is good, since I have laundry to do.  Ugh. 

Wanna play? Maybe you have something inspiring to say about laundry? I'd love to read it, because I don't see how it's possible. Ugh.  Head over here to join in the fun. 


  1. I can relate to tiny washing machines, as when my kids were little we just had a small portable washer that hooked up to the kitchen sink. Wow, do you live in London now - what a change from the states? I'd love to hear more of your story :)

    1. It is a huge change from the states! But we came from Hawaii, which isn't really like the rest of the states, and before that we were in Guam, which is its own little it wasn't as much of an adjustment! Thanks for stopping by, my story is all over this little blog of mine.
