Isn't that the truth. And I even have 2 washers side by side and I still can't keep up!! How's that for being pathetic!!

Erin said...

I JUST finished ironing 15 of my husband's work shirts. I completely relate to this post!

Carla said...

Copying your quote:)
Happy Laundry Day (and every Laundry Day hereafter to you and yours:)
My God Bless Your Washer and Dryer:)

Lori said...

i.hate.laundry.

Nat said...

HAHA!! I think I'm going to have to hang that saying above my washer and dryer! Maybe I should make my kids go naked-at least the ones that stay at home with me.

Amy said...

Ah, laundry! The never ending chore! HOWEVER, I am so thankful that the days of coin-op-laundromats-where-quarters-are-like-gold are gone! I am so grateful to have a washer and dryer in my house.

Melissa the Careful Wisher said...

Love, Love, Love the quote! LOL

TJ said...

How true is that! I'm hopelessly behind on laundry.

Kellie said...

I can't stand laundry day. We live in an apartment complex and the washer and dryer are downstairs two levels and cost way too much. I can't wait to have my own!!

Whitney R said...

There are only two of us and I do 9 separate loads. Ridiculous? I think so, too.

ewe are here said...

It does seem to be a neverending project.

sigh

susette said...

That's a pretty funny yet oh so true saying! Three loads a day when all the kids were home. Two have moved out and I still do two loads a day. When it's sheets day then it's more. But aren't we grateful that we can have clean clothes and clean bodies? Can you imagine having to hand wash clothes? I'm very appreciative of my modern-day conveniences.

rachel said...

Am I strange because I like laundry??
YES!! It's my favorite chore...I don't know why.

Mammamia said...

AMEN!

Redhoodoos said...

wow that's true! And I'm doing laundry right now as we speak!

Claire said...

haha... i actually made the girls take their clothes off an hour before bed times so I could put their cothes in the wash. THey were running around in their underwear, but it meant I got all my washing done!;)

Our Complete Family said...

So funny and true!
I'm doing laundry right now.
It's a neverending task, isn't it?!?
~ Les

Lynn said...

I have been lucky...I have a husband who washes and dries...I wrote about laundry on my blog awhile back and I love that quote !

Octamom said...

So much truth contained in that little sentence!!!

Blessings!

Debbie Y. said...

My hubby helps me with the laundry. He puts the load in the washer and leaves it there all day. Then when I come home I have to move them. They are already wrinkled before I even put them over into the dryer.

Emma said...

How cute! That is so true! I have so much laundry to do before tomorrow...

tammy said...

So true. And I always tell my family they're not allowed to wear any more clothes when I have all the laundry done.

blueviolet said...

You couldn't have said that better. Sometimes I feel like making everybody strip down so it will be done if for just a moment.

nikkicrumpet said...

That's what husbands are for!

Mother Goose said...

I love doing laundry! the only thing I don't like doing is PUTTING it away

Lucy said...

I hate laundry. It's always THERE! Waiting to be washed; waiting to be dried; waiting to be folded; and waiting weeks to be put away....And I live alone. With a cat. IhateitItellya!

Alex said...

hahahha...love the cartoon!! Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog! :)

Coordination Queen said...

I don't mind the washing or the drying really, it is the folding and putting away that I have serious issues with.

Tiglizzyclone said...

It seems I spend most my time doing laundry!

So said...

HA! I'm painting that on the laundry room door.

I have tons of laundry to do as well. I did get the four loads of clean laundry that's been sitting around folded and put away. And all the dirty laundry strewn throughout the house all re-located to the laundry room and sorted. But that's as far as I've gotten.

Rhonda said...

SO TRUE!

That Girl in Brazil said...

I LOVE THIS QUOTE!!! I just may do it in calligraphy over my laundry room.

KC Mom said...

Love that quote! We've been out of town for a week so I'm in bigggg trouble.

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

Love this! If I was there I'd come help! ♥

Laura said...

How true! Just when you think you're done, someone has the nerve to wear clothes and get them dirty!

Mommy to those Special Ks said...

Thanks for visiting my blog! I look forward to following along here... you know, after I do my laundry! LOL :) I'll be back!

Arv said...

Hiya..

First time here...

Have a nice weekend... cheers..

-Melissa- said...

So true! Speaking of laundry I need to go do some. :) Love the quote.

Misty said...

I have this exact plaque hanging in my laundry room! LOL

Tink said...

Ain't that the truth! Phooey! And do I have piles growing right now!

Kaylynn said...

Thanks for stopping by my Bucket Fillers blog--I plan to add more quotes each day, so please come back. I love Tigger--he is always so happy!

bfs said...

Perfect post! There is no end to it, which, I suppose, is why the washing machine goes round and round!!! :-)

Becky said...

This sign is so cute. And laundry is truly NEVER done... which is so frustrating. The worst is the ironing!

Alex said...

Good afternoon! Hope you're having a good weekend. :)

Jan said...

That is so true. I love it. I am never on top of it really. It is surprising that I am not running around nekked.

Melanie said...

After being out of town and trying to get caught up on laundry today, I completely agree with this quote! :)

Mara (the coffee lover) said...

awesome picture!

Brenda said...

I will come help you sweetie!

texasblu said...

Alas, there are no dead OR naked people at my house, which is why I must do TWO loads a day - or drown!

MERRIANNE said...

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamen!

Belle (from Life of a...) said...

That's what I call putting things into perspective...

Stacey said...

Love it! Laundry never ends,it's such a vicious cycle!

Andrea said...

So true! I don't mind doing the laundry, just folding it and putting it away. :op

Linda said...

So funny! That's how I feel about it.

Gramma Ann said...

Thanks for your visit, My laundry day this week is tomorrow. (Monday)

Are we allowed to use the cartoon about laundry day? It is so cute. This is my first visit, and your blog is cute.

Kerri said...

Love this quote :) Once the kids move out laundry becomes much easier!
Thanks for visiting and saying hello. It's nice to meet you!

devri said...

I suck at laundry, yep, not fun, not good at it, and never keep up..

oh well...

jen said...

now that we cloth diaper...
the laundry is NEVER caught up. ever.
but that's ok.
thanks for visiting my blog!

Blossom said...

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I love your quote! So true - you should see the piles of laundry in my laundry room...or maybe not. Ugh.

Keli said...

Hilarious! I hate laundry! I really don't mind putting it in the washer but after that I'm done! LOL! xo Keli

Tiffany T said...

Nice of you to stop by :).

The funny thing about your post is that I did 5 loads of laundry in one day (while watching Judge Judy - please don't judge) when suddenly my husband said, "Do I have clean underwear?" I was thinking of course, I just did them!! But I stopped my scathing reply to think about it... it had actually been about 1 week ago I had done the 5-load-laundry-marathon. Doesn't that count for at LEAST 5 months?!

Thanks for the great post.

Paige said...

That is a fact, the laundry will be the death of me, no doubt about it,

Mark my words, they will someday find my rotting body in the laundry room under a pile

Tiffany said...

that is one of my favorite quotes. I even had it on my blog for a while. amen!

Liz said...

HA HA HA...too funny - I was just contemplating the piles upon piles of laundry I need to tackle tomorrow...really it will probably be my whole day tomorrow...ugh...

Thanks for popping by my bloggy little world...I love visitors!!

feather k said...

So true!!! I think I may hold the record for how long a load of laundry can stay in the dryer...thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

Swirl Girl said...

Janie said...

That's hilarious! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

jess said...

this is totally me. i can wash and dry just fine. it's all that dang folding...

Stephanie and Co. said...

Sometimes I think about joining a nudist colony, just so I don't have to do laundry, my mortal enemy. But then I remember those awful dreams where you go to school naked, and wow, I'm just sharing way too much information with you. I'll stop now.

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

Yes! I agree. I hate laundry! I love that you stopped by and left a comment. I am now a follower and will be back to check you out more frequently!!!

Thanks!

jill jill bo bill said...

So glad you dropped by!

Love the laundry quote!

Mikki said...

That is so true. I have been completely caught up with the laundry once, and it only lasted for about five seconds.

Casdok said...

Havent thought of it like that before!

Crazy Sister said...

Yep. You get every stitch of material in the house clean, then collapse onto the couch... which has a wet patch on the cushions.

Justine said...

Okay, tell me how you've done it. You just started blogging this past month and you've got 149 followers! Gimme your secret!!!!!!!!!

JUstine :o )

Jamie said...

Haha, ain't that the truth! I feel like I'm always doing laundry, I swear it's never ending :-)

Thanks for visting my blog...yours is quite cute!

McEwens said...

Isnt that the truth!!!!

Sunita said...

Wow! What a great blog! I love the graphics too (especially).

Laundry? I love the quote but thankfully I live in India! The sun is so hot it steam-dries the clothes in minutes. And there's always the guy who comes and collects the clothes for ironing (costs just a few cents in your currency). And when I'm super-lazy there's the neighbourhood 'dhobhi' (washerman) who'll wash, sun-dry and iron my clothes for a pittance.
Funnily enough I enjoy ironing clothes (we all have our little quirks) --- that's when I do all my plotting and planning ;)

Thanks for dropping by my blog and leading me here. I love it when I find blogs that I really enjoy reading :)

Grammy said...

Thanks for stopping by. Love your laundry joke. lol

Annette Lyon said...

Hahahaaa!

Dang. I've got two loads to fold.

Kathleen said...

Amen to that, I was all caught up but since the holiday I'm gathering it all up from around the house and looks like 6 more loads.

What a great quote too...gave me a good little chuck this afternoon.

Kay Dennison said...

The only one who gpt all his work done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe!

Rob said...

Laundry is never ending at our house.

Shimmy Mom said...

Yes, and mine is piling up around us as we speak.
Thanks for the laugh.
*hugs*

Jenn P. said...

What a fantastic saying! I am never caught up with my laundry.

Mental P Mama said...

Laundry is the bane of my existence. Seriously. Thanks for the visit!

Happyhome said...

So very true! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. Nice to meet you!

Carol said...

Love this quote. All I have left at home now is husband and one daughter, but with grandkids over all the time, now I have extra clothes for them and when they change, they just leave the next set of clean clothes here. We just went to our last football game. We followed our 2 boys through jr hi, high school and college 13 years and before that was soccer....do you think it is time now to wash all the blankets in my van? Need to get them ready for Track Season....nope...never done. Carol

God's Girl said...

I love your blog. Glorifying Jesus and fun to read. Good combo!

Love,
Julie

Ms. Tee said...

what a funny quote! Soon, I'm going to post my friend's laundry room - it has verses all over it and I love it. Have a wonderful week. :)

Nancy said...

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. Abe needs all the prayers he can get right now. Thank you!

When I was married with kids at home, I used to do 2 loads every day and iron whatever was in the wash. The only dirty clothes we ever had were what we had on our backs. Now that I am alone, I do admit, I do have dirty clothes since I only wash once a week. As I have grown older, I have become more lax with things. My hyper days are over. LOL

Nice blog you have here!

(((((( HUGS ))))))

Liz said...

I've never had a tatoo. Nor do I plan on getting one. But if I did... it would be this quote. :)

Annikke said...

I LOVE that! It is sooooooooooooo true!

Letti said...

That is so true. This might sound wired but I actually enjoy doing laundry. Now bathrooms thats another story!

KarenW said...

I've got to give that quote to my dh. He has told me several times that he has done all the laundry. I've tried to tell him that's just impossible!
Love your blog. Thanks for stopping by.

Doré said...

Is this the truth? It NEVER ends at my house!

So true!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Amanda said...

LOL, I feel like I am drowning in laundry. Hate folding it, hate sorting it, hate putting it in the wash, hate switching it, hate pulling it out. Normally when I do The first steps... my work is ruined because I didn't fold and let them wrinkle!

Sarah Laurence said...

Ha! That is really funny. I have piles to catch up on since I've been away. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

JMBMOMMY said...

LOL! Oh my I love this. Laundry is literally taking over my home and my sanity!!!!
