I know I am not alone in this, but at my house there are two jobs that are never ending and you have to stay on top of them....
One is laundry. I don't mind doing laundry that much. After all, the machines do all the work. Its not like I am washing clothes in the creek on a rock or like my grandmothers and mother, using a wringer washer on the back porch or in an outbuilding. I just have to put the laundry in the machines and keep it moving along.
When I am at home on Saturdays or other days off I love to start the laundry first thing in the morning and keep it moving all day until finished. It gives me something to do when I take a break from sewing or other activities.
My hubby says he has magic clothes. They just appear on the bed all clean, folded and sorted for him to put away into his drawers.
I also do my mother's laundry. At the nursing home we had the option of doing the laundry ourselves or if we put her name in the clothes with a laundry pen, they would do it. I said, no thanks. I will keep her clothes clean myself. That's just one small thing I can do for her that's no problem at all.
This is a recently made clothespin bag hanging in my laundry room. I will make a few of these all along so they will be available when the weather warms up this spring.
The other never ending job is keeping the dust bunnies under control on the hard wood floors!!! Isn't this terrible?!!! Its not as bad as it looks. We have a fan in this room and this spot is located on the side of the room where there is a draft every time the front door is opened. All the dust bunnies are either blown or sucked over this way and they congregate here. It only took a minute to get them up, but I couldn't resist showing you how I was NOT on top of this job for a few days!!! Believe me it was only a few days!!
What jobs do you have to stay on top of or they will take over your house?
