I love doing laundry. Call me old fashioned, but I love it! There is something about it. I take the bin to the washer, put the dirty clothes in, put in soap & turn it on. How easy! Then, I go make the bed, this is key to the next few steps. Then I gather up the next load of dirty clothes to be washed. Take the bin back, unload the damp clothes & put them in the dryer, with a sheet, and turn it on. So simple. Put the next load in & the routine repeats itself.
Finally, once the first load is dry I take it to the bed & dump it on there. Then I sort out the socks, shirts, shorts, bras, etc. Once I have organized piles, I begin to fold. And everything has a specific fold, the shirts are folded just so that there are no wrinkles, the socks so that once you pull them neither one ends up inside out, the garments are nicely rolled into one folded ball so you're never searching for the top or bottom, etc. I just love how methodic it feels to mindlessly organize. Its also so refreshing to use my hands to touch the soft clothing and to feel like I'm active (not just typing away for work). And then I place the fresh clothes in the drawers & I'm onto the next load that has just come out smelling like soap and feels so warm in my arms. I just love it. It just calms me. Ahh... I love it!
