Washing on Holidays?

United States
July 5, 2012 2:03pm CST
Yesterday was the fourth of July. I was so waiting for my hubby to ask me if I ever take a day off when it comes to laundry? I usually do 1-2 loads a day on my days off. I have more days off then I do working so why not? I did do a load of towels yesterday as we were out of towels so I had to. Otherwise holidays are like any other day it still has to get done.

I have to wash all the time even on holiday's too. I did not wash this holiday because I went to a cook out with my mother. I did have a lot of fun out there in all that darn heat.

I usually do my laundry every Friday since weekends are bonding time with my husband. But yesterday I sent my husband dirty clothes in the laundry shop, he preferred to washed it in the laundry shop to save time and effort. Laundry is very tiring household chores and i cant manage it since I am also working.

I wouldn't say it's all that unusual to do the laundry on holidays. What else must you do on a holiday? Be bored all the time? It must be fun though to still celebrate a public holiday and feel with everybody else that it is a day of celebration. Myself personally don't even keep track of holidays; I see some people didn't go to work on a particular day and then later I would learn it's a holiday. Don't ask me what holiday though. We all should celebrate in our own ways. And if that way is to wash clothes, then that's as valid as any other way.

I washed all my clothes a few days ago. I had to wash out a few pairs of undies but,i did that by hand in the sink. I have to give up my washer this month and so far I am done washing for the month..

Hi 3SnuggleBunnies, I do the laundry almost everyday as long as I'm at home. It's not a tough household work as I just have to dump all the laundry in the washing machine in the evening. Late evening is the best time to coop with the laundry for we would throw all the dirty clothes as well as towels, and ... into the machine after having bath. I like spending holidays away from home so I don't have to do the clothes washing Anyway it would be a heavy load of laundry for sure when coming back from a few days vacation

There is nothing that stops me from doing some laundry or something like that on a holiday. The fact is, the housework doesn't get put on hold for a holiday, so you really shouldn't take off from the housework when it is a holiday unless you are away from home. With that said, I did a load of laundry on the 4th as well because it was simply something that had to get done.

lol. Sometimes I expect people to be out partying at certain times and they're always like, "just doing laundry at home." Laundry is very important for hygienic and self-esteem reasons, so I totally understand.

hi ambiepam I am so spoiled here as Gold Crest caregivers wash all my clothes for me every Friday. I almost miss that, and cooking that is what I really miss. I learned to enjoy cooking for one as my son worked odd hours and ate out a lot. some retirement centerd do have facilites in the rooms to let residents do their own cooking but alas they are horribly expensive so wealthy people stick their parents in there so they will not have to care for them them selves.really thats what a lot of them do.Mine was not that a all, we just were evicted and left homeless so my son did the best he cou ld for me.God love him
