laundry day payback

So today was laundry day and I really wasn't in the mood to do it. It's just takes too much time out of the day - you have to separate the whites from the blacks and the colors, then do one load at a time meaning at the least you're wasting 6 hours out of your day to do laundry, which isn't what I want to spend my day doing. No one does! Unfortunately it still had to get done.

Well, earlier today the BF and I grabbed some lunch from a local deli. We came home, sat down to eat our sandwiches, and guess who joins us??.... Molly (my quite lovable yet annoying puppy)! As we're eating she starts whining. I like to talk to Molly as if she's a kid, so I said "be good and you'll get some roast beef when I'm done"... Well she started begging and barking for my food, so the BF chased her out of the room. You're probably thinking where does laundry day come into this? Am I right? Don't worry... I'm getting there. We finished up with lunch and I took a little piece of roast beef outside to give Molly. Next thing I knew, the BF was running towards me - he took the roast beef out of my hand and threw it in the bushes outside the house. He said "she was a bad girl! You can't give her treats when she's bad!". Unfortunately Molly saw that he had thrown the roast beef in the bush and she immediately jumped into the bushes to find it. She spent about a half hour in there and never found it. The BF teased her! I felt horrible! Soo I ended up going outside to find the roast beef in the bush for Molly - luckily I found it. She was so excited! 

Even though Molly still got her treat, I felt like the BF needed to "pay" for teasing her. I thought to myself for a while and finally decided that HE should do laundry! For real, I always do the laundry... I thought it was about time he did it. Well he brought the laundry baskets to the basement, sat down, and actually started separating the clothing into whites, blacks, and colors. 

I just watched, slack-jawed of course in amazement as he put the first load of laundry in. Two hours later... All of our clothes were still perfectly intact! Incredible! And the best past is that now I know he is completely capable of doing laundry! Laundry day was absolutely a success!
