Laundry limitations

Folding laundry is one of those tasks I put off, for some reason.  Yesterday, after the clothes had been sitting in the dryer all day, I finally dumped them onto the floor in a high traffic area, hoping that:
a) I would be so inconvenienced by having to step over them constantly that I would annoy myself into folding them, or
b) someone else would notice them and fold them.

Neither of those happened, and when I woke up this morning, there was the pile, looking at me.  It wasn't even a pile anymore, because it had been scattered by people walking through it.  I decided I would do it after I finished flash cards with the kids, while they were happily, quietly, diligently working on their lesson (do you hear the sarcasm?).  Finished with the interactive part of the lesson, I turned to tackle the pile.  But there were two kittens asleep on it!  Obviously, you don't disturb sleeping kittens, so the pile wins again.

We are definitely twins separated at birth. Laundry is my nemesis! I hate ironing too, so I am constantly putting the clothes back in the dryer to get the wrinkles out. If I ever win the lottery that I don't play, I will hire someone to do my laundry for me!
