The battle of the century!

Good evening everyone. Welcome to the fight we have all been waiting for. I am Bob, along with my fellow announcer, Jim.

In this corner weighing in at 450 pounds, consisting of 12 loads of white, darks, jeans, colors, greys/tans and towels is the the dreaded laundry. In this corner, weighing, none of your beeswax, is Francesca.

Now, Jim, Francesca may have a poor record against this competitor, but I think she has potential. She has only won 120 out of the 46,831 times they have met, but this could be her day.


As the bell rings we see Francesca coming out swinging, but she has had a problem with her stamina in the past. We will see if she has improved any. Now the laundry's biggest defense is it's sheer mass. It has the ability to make the bravest of fighters cower in the corner, thumb in mouth, in the fetal position.


Now, in Round 1, Francesca managed to take out the easiest in the laundry's arsenal, the jeans and towels, but let us see if she can manage the colors. It is amazing how many little shirts can fit into one load, Bob. She is trying to get ready for the next round. Here is where we have seen her go downhill. Let's see what she has got left.


She is getting winded, I am not sure she has enough gas to see it through. Oh, and she goes down. Well, that was a short fight, Jim. I thought she would make it to the 3rd round. But this TKO was brutal. She will have to spend ALL her spare time training for the rematch.

Better luck to her next time.

That was awesome. I've recently reached some level of victory in my battle vs the laundry but it has been so tough. And I think my victory may be terrible to others. (If I can fit all the dirty clothes into the laundry sorters and hampers and nothing is overflowing I'm happy). I also have been making myself put the clothes away as soon as they are out of the dryer. It requires the sort of radical self discipline I generally don't have but after 2 mos of doing this I'm amazed at how little time it takes and how much easier it makes my life.

loved it! I'm with you there. I used to do laundry once a week- and even then it was only 4 loads. Now I do it once every 4 or 5 days, and it's more like 6 loads.

My man does laundry, I have to put away. I still stink at that. And most often we get ridiculously behind. We get busy with out LIST of things to do...I am always amazed at you, always.

I love your blog! The strength of your faith in God is amazing. This post made me laugh, I usually don't make it to the end of the laundry stack either. What is it about folding clothes that turns me into the worlds biggest procrastinator? Ugh. Anyway, stop by my blog if you'd like. :) Your girls are adorable!
