Many years ago, I moved from the Chicago area to the Pittsburgh area while my wife and family remained behind to sell our house. I was teaching full time and working part time at a men's store as well as starting up my own DJ business, so I had very little spare time. Additionally, the laundry was not in my apartment but around in the back of the building. If it was in use, I had to come back another time. Several times, i was faced with the choice: stay up late and do the laundry or go buy some clean underwear. Usually, I bought the clean underwear.
Since the family arrived, though, and particularly since I retired from teaching and reduced my work load, I do the family laundry on Wednesdays. On the days when I am baking bread and cookies, Mrs Media helps out a lot with the task When I'm not baking, I'll do 80% of the laundry day tasks if not more.
