TaLkIn TuEsDaY

So todays topic....regular household chores, such as making the bed and laundry, etc. Why do we do it?? Especially making the bed. We get up make the bed that we just slept in. We tuck straighten, smooth and put decorative pillows on and for what?? To take them all off and undo everything we just did not that long ago. Then only to have our husband complain about the stupid decorative pillows and comforters that we don't even use. It just gets folded up and laid down at the end of the bed until it's made again. We do this routine over and over. I just personally feel it is so pointless. Especially when sometimes I don't get around to making the bed until later in the afternoon because I am doing more important things that NEED to get done. So then the bed is only made for like 6 hours, so stupid. Also folding laundry and putting it away. Now I know why we do laundry so we have clean clothes, towels and whatever else.But then again what is the point of folding it and putting it away especially when you just get it out wear it or use it then throw it back in the dirty clothes again to be washed, refolded and put away. Especially with underwear you only wear it once and I feel that is something I am always washing folding and putting away for it to just be done again in a few days. We should just get these huge baskets for each thing like; clothes, towels, underwear, etc. throw them in there when they are clean and you just pull them out when you need them. Then you don't feel as bad for folding them and putting them away just to get them unfolded and back out to use again. I know I am so re tarted or maybe just lazy but I swear especially the making the bed thing are just pointless things to my day that will never end. Well the wraps it up for today's Talking Tuesday. Until next time......

I love for things to look organized so I guess that is why I do it everyday, but I agree why do we feel like it has to be done when it is just going to be thrown onto the ground or re-slept in? I could definitely go without folding laundry because I hate it more than anything. I do like the accomplishment of having it all done but then I turn around and have two more baskets waiting daily. A house it to live in and should be a place to relax and be yourself in. I sure hope nobody judges me by the way my house is in order or not. Love your Talkin Tuesday, we have so much in common.

Ha ha - I totally think about that all the time! I definitely don't make the bed every day but I do try to make it most days. It helps me when I'm feeling a little crazy. Having a made bed makes me feel like I have control over something... Now laundry is another story. Ask Marc about our "clothes madness".

Did we grow up in the same house? Now my husband would 100% agree with you with the whole making bed thing. As for me i LOVE my bed to be made. No one sees it and no one cares but my house only really feels clean when my bed is made and my house is vacumed.

I don't think my boys ever have clothes in their drawer. I should just get rid of their dressers in the bedrooms! I just keep all the clean clothes in baskets and put them in their room, my room, or the laundry room. Our lives are constantly filled with digging through the clean clothes to find something to wear. Whatever works-right?
