You have to assign chores to yourself every day. When the children were all little, the chores all got assigned to me. It was exhausting in those days but now I have the luxury of some wonderful helpers. I often tell my oldest two daughters, "Y'all are so hard-working, I feel like there's three of me."
Personally I don't mind laundry at all. Maybe it's because I like clothes. The shopper deep down has a positive side after all. I am actually a little bit of a laundry control freak because some stuff can't go in the dryer or it shrinks, and you just can't trust people to not throw in a bright red towel with my brand new white jeans. My basic routine is to throw in one load of laundry morning. If you do that, laundry is just no big deal. If you let it pile up instead, like anything you will feel hopeless about it. Seriously we can't complain that much about laundry. It's not like we're hand washing much of anything like the Little House on the Prairie people. And unless your husband has work clothes that have to be ironed, the world is so casual these days that I rarely iron.
