I have a robot or machine to vacuum, to wash clothes, to dry clothes, to grate cheese, chop onions, mix bread or cookie dough, to heat water, cook rice, perk my coffee, keep it warm, and one to wash and dry my dishes.

Why is it so hard to put the dishes in the machine that washes and dries them, and then takeĀ  them out again?

    Ahh, but where is the machine to fold the laundry? That’s the key! I’d give up the dryer for a folding machine…

      In the Philippines I learned to hang our clothes on the coathangers on the line, and then they went straight to the closet. I have nto been as diligent to line-dry here. And I don’t put underwear, socks, and other things on hangers, anyway.

    I began reading your blog in, perhaps, 2008. It was a great encouragement to me as a missionary mom and 3 in those early days of homeschooling and battling depression. Somewhere along the way, blogs fell by the wayside in my life. But for some reason you came to mind this evening and I thought I’d catch up. All I can say is that I am praying for you and the Cherub. May God bless you.

    Haha, ain’t that the truth. I find it’s the tedious over-and-over-ness of it that I object to.

      True. I am now folding a week’s worth of laundry all at once. And then we’re just goig to wear them again and repeat the cycle. And that’s in quarantine covid time, which is the Time of No Pants.

    In my family to that question we would say “it be like that sometimes (sad emoji)”. Or we would point out that executive dysfunction is a thing, that expending all your mental energy on important tasks and then having nothing left to force yourself to do something small but tiresome is a thing. I’ve been there myself. Sometimes it takes me hours from thinking “I need to start my exercises now” to actually starting the exercises which I need to do on a daily basis for my health, because it’s just a bit of a drag and I tend to do them at the end of the when I’m already spent.

    Anyway, I sympathise. And I don’t think it’s pathetic. IMO it’s just the same as being physically exhausted and not being able to complete a task. It happens sometimes.
