You gotta know that I hate laundry. Yes, yes, I know. So does everybody. My laundry I can generally control. I mean I wear dress clothes to work, change when I get home, and usually I get to wear something a couple of times before I have to wash it. Good. The kids is a completely different story. The stuff piles up for them even when they don't wear it. I hate having the "why is that on the floor" conversation. Just because you choose to take it out of the closet and reject wearing it DOES NOT MEAN ITS DIRTY. When we were first married, Tim worked as a salesman for a lumber distributor. That meant shirt/tie/dress pants. Every week I ironed and ironed. I had it down to 5 minutes a shirt (I thought that was pretty good). How is it that white shirts - washed in the white load, just never stay white??? Then he went to the sport shop and it became heavy duty construction grade jeans and polo shirt after polo shirt - usually once a year for the snowmobile show he'd get 2or3 new ones (one year at least the ones I washed stayed red - how come Steve's turned out PINK!). Then finally came the biggest blessing of all! Enter "ULTIMATE AUTO" dress shirts and pants - all taken care of by Quinton's Cleaners. YES!
A few weeks ago DH mentioned they were getting golf shirts. I thought that was nice. Yeah, great. Yesterday he went to Mark's Work Warehouse and bought some very fine - stain resistant, wrinkle resistant pants. shall I call them slacks? are they laundry resistant? **SIGH** back to basics it is. The dark load just got a lot bigger again.
Don't even get me started on our exercise gear!!!
