Don’t you just love doing laundry? Isn’t it your favorite household task? NOT!!!
We are a family of six with four busy children that play sports and we create a massive amount of laundry, constantly! A light week in our house can be 7 loads and a heavy week is 10 or more loads! Fortunately, we bought the largest capacity machine but I still hate doing laundry! Many household tasks are repetitive and never ending but laundry is, without a doubt, my least favorite!
There is no job in the house that I despise more than washing, drying, carrying, folding, and delivering the laundry.
For Mother’s Day or my birthday, I no longer need anything extravagant as far as a gift. I often just look forward to dinner out instead of shopping, cooking and then cleaning up. My gift lists usually include a gift certificate to my hair salon or current favorite store, a spa visit for a massage, or a refill on my favorite perfume. Nothing too excessive! These are all great gifts but somewhat short lived.
I have learned that certain gift items bring delight over and over and many of them happen to be in my kitchen. It sounds a little lame (maybe quite lame) but sometimes I would rather have a new toaster than new clothes. Given that I spend many hours in the kitchen, a really great cooking tool or gadget, makes cooking easier and brings me satisfaction over and over. I already have beautiful jewelry, I don’t need more of it. I really don’t need more than a few bottles of perfume. Simple gifts that are useful everyday are usually my favorites.
