I love doing laundry. I am not much of a housekeeper. But laundry is a chore I don't mind doing. Laundry is relatively simple. Put the clothes in the washing machine, wait awhile, put the clothes in the dryer, wait awhile, fold, put away and you're done. I feel productive at the end of the weekend when I finish the laundry. I have to fold and put the clothes away immediately after the dryer is finished - to prevent wrinkling. I do not iron. Nothing makes me feel more married than doing my husband's laundry - especially his underwear. Maybe because it is such a personal item of clothes. Maybe it is because there is no way that I would let anyone else wash and fold my underwear and he lets me do his. Maybe it is because it is such a mundane but necessary task. Whatever the reason, whenever I fold my husband's laundry, I feel very married. I love being married and having that connection to one person and knowing it is forever and ever. Even more than I love being married, I love the man I am married to!
