The Domestic Experiment

Being the thrifty, snazzy wife & mother than i am, i decided to do a little project. 2 parts; neither of them complete: I have such a pretty, nice, super comfy/cozy, spacious bed. For the life of myself, i cannot figure out how one person can shuffle the sheets so much when they practically stay in one spot for 8 hours, but alas, my husband is the "messiest" sleeper and i am not even a neat freak! Could be that he sleeps diagonal? (Picture me squished to the edge...)Weird? yes.
So i decided to document this. Matt went out of town for a few days back in April (outdated post? yes.) and i didn't make the bed ONE TIME and you can see what happened to my side of the bed.
Practically nothing...I could EASILY fold my side back over, do a little nip and tuck here and there, throw the pillows back on and we are set. Some of you might say "What is the big freaking deal?"
Nothing. Seriously! Nothing...
There is no deal.
Then Matt came home.
Wha? Uh? Seriously?
The dude is all over the map. This isn't even the worst i've seen!

Laundry is another story:I have never hidden the fact that i don't like putting up laundry. I would even venture to say HATE putting it up. I would rather scrub a toilet.

Quick. Easy. Smells good afterwards.
Done & Done.
Laundry takes FOR.EV.ER. (im SUUUUPER busy...false)

You have to:
sort it. Fold what needs to be folded.
Put in a pile what needs to be hung up.
Get out the hangers.
Get them untangled like 100 times.
Put hangers ON the clothes.
Separate husband's stuff.
Separate towels.
separate baby stuff.
separate my stuff.
Trip over shoes in the closet.
This crap continues...
Etc etc.
Did you cringe and curse just reading that? I did. And i think my blood pressure rose. UGH.

SO i went 3 weeks and JUST washed my clothes and baby's clothes. I kept all of Matt's stuff in the laundry basket. Did he notice? no. Did he have clothes to wear? miraculously, yes.

He did a load of laundry.
HA!! that will teach him.
And what happened?
It sat in a basket for another week:
Then it sat in a chair for another week.
So who learned something here?
Freaking no one.

Well i must say i have the same prob with my bed sheets after my hubby is in it. totally tossed around! SO WEIRD!!!

And i too share your hate of laundry chores and would also rather clean a toilet for the exact same reasons!!

I guess girls will be girls and boys will be boys!!
