I guess you consider yourself to be lucky. How wonderful that your husband helps.

I hate to admit this to anyone, but I hate housework. In fact, my husband helps me do it all, laundry, vacuuming, dusting, cooking and doing the dishes. He says he does that so we both have more time to get out and explore.

Above all, donít live with regrets. Approach life with perseverance and dedication to the things that matter most to you. Success is never easy. It remains up to you whether you will give up, or fight through the tough battles to earn whatever it is you want.

When I do have ironing to do (like today) I wait until I have enough for an hour or two, then I go into the room that has the TV with a built in VCR/DVD player -- and I watch movies while I iron.

Time goes by so quickly I hardly look at it as work.

Keep smiling everyone!

Yes, I do try that sometimes and I do it so quickly just to get it out of the way.
Right now I have a pile of lace curtains about 24 pieces to fold and put away as I changed curtains two days ago.So I'm off to do just that .Thank God they don't have to be ironed!

It seems to work better if I fold and put away each load when it's done. Otherwise it all sits in a basket until needed. Not a good thing as this leaves piles of ironing.

I do agree they look so lovely and organised when done but the folding gets to me.
Last year my sister visited and she did all the folding she said it became a joy because she did so much when her quads were babies.

OK, Jack -- let's hear your comment on this one! haha I actually kind of like the folding process, but not so much the putting away part. Although when all my panties, bras and socks are neatly folded and put away in their respective drawers, I like to stand back and see how neat and organized they all look!

I try to do my laundry during the hours that our electricity is cheaper. I know that not all areas have that, sure am glad that we do!

Does everyone like folding and putting away laundry? I don't although I love most housework in general.
Is it just me?
