Pile of Laundry

How much can you tell about a person’s state of mind by seeing a pile of laundry?


  1. Haley-O (Cheaty)

    Hmmm…, do I spy LEOPARD PRINT??? 😉

    I feel validated by your pile of laundry. It looks identical to the one in front of my washing machine. I’m waiting for it to crawl into the machine on its own.

    Mine has an ice axe in it. I shit you not. Just tripped over it yesterday.

    friend in college had a similar daunting pile of laundry. he piled it all in the middle of his dorm room and then said “a la peanut butter sandwiches” and then folded it up and put it away.

    true story.

    I have a pile of laundry in the master bedroom we refer to as Mt. Washed. Very occasionally I get my act together and spend an entire day folding and sorting and putting away. Usually we just have to dive into the pile to get dressed each morning. Mental health is overrated.

    Our laundry room has looked like this for years.

    Dirty or clean?

    Truth be told, I love doing laundry because it always smells so good. I do not like putting it away, though, which is why we have a pile like this at the foot of the bed until we work our way through it and it’s all dirty again.

    OH MY God. I think I just had a heart attack!

    That is HILARIOUS!!! (Of course, I can laugh because I’m not the one who has to actually *do* that laundry.) 🙂 good luck with that…

    We refer to laundry as Mount Never-rest. It’s still going to be there tomorrow, so the hell with it.

    I told you darlink, natural fibers only 😉

    Please tell me that is more than one person’s laundry.

    This looks all-too familiar. When, at last, I manage to make it disappear nicely put away where it belongs I have two minutes of perfection to enjoy before the next laundry pile starts to accumulate.

    yeah, totally, it says something, “is the laundry clean or dirty?” or “did you fold it right out of the drier or let it stay balled up so it is wrinkled when you get it out three days later?” I have no idea how, but am certain there are traits consistent with the laundry

    I’m scared.

    No big deal. I’ve seen worse.

    The growing mound of laundry in my room has become a chaotic symbol of procrastination. Despite its overwhelming presence, the task looms undone. Each item holds a story, a memory tangled in the fabric, waiting to be unearthed amidst the folds and wrinkles. best laundromat near me
