10 Things I’d Rather Do Than Laundry

20 Feb

Today’s post is supposed to be a list of 10 things I’d rather do than clean, however I don’t mind cleaning.  Not that I do it too often or well.  But I loathe – absolutely and emphatically – LOATHE hanging and putting away the laundry.

My list of 10 things I’d rather do than laundry:

1. Read a book

2. Snuggle in bed with my honey

3. Horse back ride

4. Dance

5. Listen to music

6. Sing and act

7. Paint (a picture or the house)

8. Swim

9. Take a Sunday drive

10. Host or attend a gathering of family or friends

One of these days, I’ll hire someone to do the laundry for me.  Until then, the laundry mountains multiply like Tribbles and the dryer serves as a laundry storage device.

Two chores I don’t mind?  Doing the dishes and cutting the grass.

Today’s post is brought to you by the folks at Prestige, makers of Comet, Spic and Span, and all those products I don’t use, and by the letter T.

This post is linked up over at The Good Life as part of the Monday Listicles.  Go.  Read.  Find out how other people are weaseling their way out of housework.

      Laundry is evil. Pure evil. I’m glad I’m not the only one. :)

    I don’t mind laundry up until the point of where I have to put it away… That is my #1 hated chore. But grass I will happily cut. Love your sponsors :)
    I was going to suggest to check Ado’s list cause she has someone who folds and organizes her laundry. Bam!

      Stasha, that’s exactly the point where I break down – putting the stuff away. The. Horror.

      I just saw Ado’s list. It’s fabulous. But I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the idea of hiring someone without feeling just so darned lazy. Once I get over that I will do it!

    I’m with you…doing the laundry is the most incredible time suck. Maybe that’s why cleaning the house seems so bad. We are drained from all the laundry.

    I dont’ mind laundry. It’s the one chore I can do while watching TV.

      Good point! While I’m watching a movie is one of the few times I attempt laundry. My inability to sit still wins out over my loathing of laundry. Even then, I can get through the wash and dry part yet I still can’t make myself put it away!

    I’d rather do dishes than fold laundry. Definitely.

    I’ll trade ya! I actually like doing the laundry, but cleaning the bathrooms is the WORST!
