Clothes Mountain: Starting Over?

Yesterday went off with out a hitch… that is, until I realized that what I had thought I had accomplished wasn’t yet done.

The picture above is a half full laundry basket. Someone, who will remain anonymous, took my laundry out of the dryer before it was completely dry and put it haphazardly into the laundry basket, so it’s wrinkled. Then, while I was going through the basket to see if maybe there was anything I could salvage before having to do the entire load again, I found a torn up dryer sheet; this wouldn’t be any issue for most people, but I have extremely sensitive skin and those things make me break out in hives. I now have to redo the first load, and I fear I will have to redo the second load, too.

I understand that it’s just laundry and it can be washed again, shit happens, but I get extremely pissed when I have a schedule to stick to and it gets messed up and I have to do certain tasks all over again.

I know it doesn’t seem like a big deal, but I was extremely proud of myself yesterday and now I’m just upset. My boyfriend is the only reason I didn’t drop the project.

Doing laundry is a repetitive task, but having to do the first load over again is aggravating. I really don’t have another choice, so I might as well just get started and hope that I get more done today than I did yesterday
