Feeling guilty...over my poor laundry upkeep, dh pays by sometimes having no undies to wear...oops. I need some tips.
My husband is doing his own laundry right now because I suck at it. Not being sarcastic. I seem to have a hard time disciplining myself to take the time to just do it all at once and get it all done. Between the 5 of us , one being a baby, its a lot of work. Not hard, just time consuming. I keep going in and out of depression so I've been making time for myself to bring my moods up so I'm not grumpy with everyone. Been so busy lately and that's been a hard thing to do, especially with a one year old who still isn't sleeping through the night nor has predictable nap times. I end up throwing in a little of each persons clothes the night before they need them. Dh always has the basics but if he wants something particular (like today, he wanted the thick work socks instead if the thin ones because the temp. Outside dropped. All he had was the thin ones) then it's missing in action. In fact lots of things go missing it seems when it comes to laundry. I'm a mess when it comes to keeping on top of everyone's clothes and we have little creatures in our house that eat socks and even silverware and underwear. I don't know how or where things just disappear to in my house. It not only drives me nuts, it drives my husband nuts. He decided to do his own laundry tonight because he got tired of seeing one set of socks, undies and tshirt waiting for him in the morning. He sometimes needed a different type of socks or shirt but all he had was the few items I had time to wash at the last minute. He just got irritated a few minutes ago because when he went to do his laundry he couldn't even find all his socks even though he only throws them in the bathroom hamper. Some were in the playpen downstairs waiting to be folded. Some were in the laundry room where I had started to wash them but probably got pulled away from by baby or kids. It always happens. I make a laundry plan but then my plans get ruined because I get pulled this direction and that in my household. How do you keep the laundry task from being such a chore? Instead of getting mad, my dh just decided to do the laundry himself which you think I would be happy about but that little guilt monster is eating at me. I don't work outside the home so I see this as something I can do but I sure do suck at it. Lol. Anyone else have this problem?
