Who blogs about laundry isn’t the sexiest headline you have ever read nor is it as suggestive as writing 69 reasons why dad bloggers do it better than mom bloggers.
Although it bears noting that many mom bloggers have suggested that if their husbands did the laundry they might be up for more sexy time with their men. However there is evidence that suggests that dudes who do laundry won’t be doing the horizontal mambo with mama, so put down the Tide and back away.
I Am Not A Fan Of Folding Shirts
I am not a fan of folding shirts which is part of the reason why there is a stack of clean shirts on my bed. They aren’t balled or crumpled up. They are lying flat, one on top of the other right next to the laundry basket.
They have been there for close to three hours and were my children here I would have already folded and put them away. That is part of the “dad is a good role model” deal I made when I became a father.
But since they aren’t here I didn’t have to rush to put them away.
Nor did I have to use a glass, silverware or a plate for my dinner. Someone tell my mom I am sorry but the chance to live as a bachelor doesn’t come along very often so I am taking it.
You didn’t ask but my kitchen and bathroom are clean and the overall state of this joint is one that would pass inspection. You might not give me an ‘A’ rating but you wouldn’t fail me either.
TheÂ joy of temporary bachelorhood doesn’t mean I am a slob– it just means I get to loosen up around the edges.
But one of the reasons beyond the need for clean underwear that I chose to do laundry during the week and not this weekend is so I could have time to enjoy the weekend. Got a couple of movies to see and maybe a carnival to check out.
In between it all I plan on searching for a new gym to play ball at and maybe to begin swimming again.
Don’t ask me to explain how I moved from blogging about laundry to writing about how I want to find a swimming pool to start training in again because I can’t explain it. What I can tell you is once upon a time I swam competitively and I am interested in doing so again.
The hardest part about it isn’t finding a pool because that is easy. No, what is hard is deciding that I am willing to undergo six months of hell because it is going to take that long to get myself into the kind of shape I want to be in.
Three months of hard work to get myself into the kind of shape I need to be in to start training and then three months of training so that I can start really training.
I may be a dreamer but I am also a realist and I know from experience what it is I am looking at, but the upside here is huge.
The beauty of swimming is that it is a tremendous workout that is low impact which means you can do this for years. It is not an exaggeration to say it could be life changing and provide countless benefits potentially for the rest of my life.
That is the kind of upside you can’t talk enough about nor should you ignore it.
Really, it is the sort of opportunity that you should run towards and not from.And I plan on getting to it just as soon as I finish folding these shirts.
