The Dreaded Chore!

I reminded myself of my Mom tonight... I took out the ironing board, set it up while the TV (and A/C) were on, Phil was in the room and gave me a "what's this all about" look. I can't remember the last time I ironed more than 1 item.... I'm usually rushing to iron the bare minimum, on the counter... cutting every corner possible.
Since Gene is interning and needs dress shirts, it was time - 6 shirts have been on the spare room bed for close to a week... (ah, hem...that means they would NOT move until I did something about it).
Growing up and living in a house with 2 other sisters, our ironing board was ALWAYS opening and closing - and Mom frequently would set a night aside to "just iron"... Does anyone do that anymore?

Hmmm. rarely.
In fact I am more apt to ask the cleaning lady to stay a couple extra hours and give her a pile of clothes!
