Does anyone else feel like the #1 never ending chore is laundry?

I agree with Heather, dishes.

Dishes is the one chore DH actually does with relative frequency, so I don't usually have an issue with dishes, but laundry, yes, completely and utterly the worst neverending chore!

I have joked that I was going to make my family sit around naked so that for once I could get all the laundry done.

Same here!! DH does the dishes and I do the laundry. I never feel "caught up", no matter what I do, ugh!!

Around here laundry is #1, with dishes a close second.

Absolutely, yes! With a dh that works out 3x/week and two kids that swim at least once a day and use a clean towel each time (two if they're at a meet) laundry is more a process than a task to be completed here. My #2 task in the kitchen floor. With a dog and 4 humans coming in and out directly into the kitchen, it gets really dirty, really fast. Cooking Is a very close 3rd. Athletes are always hungry!!! Dh and the dishwasher do the dishes so I'm not including that. :)

With the 3 of home for 3 meals a day (most days), the dishes add up quickly. None of my pots go in the dishwasher so there are always dishes to do by hand.

I would go nuts with all of those towels. Zeph gets one beach towel per week. It gets hung up after each practice and dries overnight and back into the backpack it goes. A couple of times he forgot to hang it up and had a wet towel after practice, but he figured it out quickly. He always comes home to shower and has a clean towel for that.
