Sunday is laundry day… I HATE doing laundry. Every Sunday I seem to start to summon up the ‘Laundry Fairies’, you know the little invisible sprites that will do my laundry and fold and put away. Yes I have a very vivid imagination and yes I sometimes still believe in Santa Clause (but this will be a whole other blog post). In all my hatred of laundry I know I have to do it, and I do it. I’ve actually developed my own little method. I don’t sort by color, I wash everything in cold water :). Usually my first load is work clothes, then I wash my workout/running clothes in a different load. But that’s one aspect of ‘domestication’.
One of my ‘resolutions’ for 2012, was to actually do more cooking at home. I know that I joke alot about me not stepping foot in a kitchen. It’s not for lack of equipment or lack of know how. Here’s a NEWS FLASH – I can cook (and pretty good if I do say so myself), several of my friends can attest to this. I don’t do it because I don’t like cooking for 1. There I said it… Cooking for 1 just takes the joy out of cooking, it totally takes the fun out of it. But with all the take out I purchase, I could have a room full of little blue boxes or Italian purses whose names en in ‘i’. I’m not going to be cooking daily, but at least twice a week, I’ll start easy.
So the answer to the question… Maybe Yes, to domesticate… Surprisingly enough after 1 week of cooking (okay 1 meal), it wasn’t terrible, nor did I slave for hours over a stove.
But I still don’t have to like doing laundry…
