Laundry is Evil

I am of the opinion that all housework is evil, really. There is such a staggering amount of it- and who is responsible for the great majority of it? That's right, women. It's a sad, twisted world. And laundry has got to be one of the worst chores- it's a daily, never ending, time consuming, vicious cycle. It's not like dishes, or other repetitive chores- if you're out of dishes, you eat out of the carton, with your hands or on a napkin. If your carpet/floor is dirty, you walk on crumbs. If your clothes are all dirty, you go out smelling funky and looking like a transient, and people will hand your kids quarters and shake their heads sadly as they walk away. You may be thinking that this is the silly ranting of a mad woman- and you are absolutely right. But in my defense, I'd like to offer some evidence as to why laundry is evil:

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

Exhibit C

Exhibit D

Exhibit E

Exhibit F

Exhibit G

And you know what, I just realized I forgot to take pictures of the dirty towel hamper and Spawn#2's hamper. If all this laundry isn't enough to make you want to off yourself, I don't know what will. So, in conclusion, I believe that I have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that laundry is, indeed, evil. Thank you. 


  1. Finally someone who shares my sentiments about house work. What a drag! Laundry isn't much fun, but I started hanging mine on the line to dry which makes me feel a bit more accomplished when it's done. also going out for a while in the sunshine does much more for my mood than slinking into the creepy basement with the spiders and other creepy crawlies I keep inthe laundry room. Personally I hate dishes much more. You're much more likely to find a mountain of them in my kitchen than the laundry. ok just kidding I have mountains of both but when I am really tired I just hide them and pretend I accomplished something anyways!

    Kat, my husband took down my line to put up a trampoline for the kids and I've yet to replace it, which is really ridiculous considering the weather we have here!

  4. I am a very lucky girl to have room enough for both but Free still doesn't have a trampoline (yet). He only asks for one every single day without fail. He's wearing me down I don't think I can take much more of it. Putting an end to the incessant requests always gets me. How many times can you really (calmly) listen to a child ask for gummies, or board games before you crack?
