Music Makes It Fun

One night, as I was doing one of my least favorite chores, folding laundry, I had what FlyLady would call a “God Breeze”.

I turned the little clock radio on in the laundry room (59-minute sleep timer, so I don’t have to remember to turn it off). Just as I opened the dryer to fold a load of towels I heard a song start, then as it ended I was done folding the whole load already! I thought, WOW! it only took me one song to fold that load of towels! Then I thought of the old TV show “Name That Tune” and how they used to say, “I can name that tune in 3 notes” or whatever. Then I thought maybe instead of using the timer to help get disliked chores done, I could use music and try to guess how many songs it would take to do the chore, then see if I am right by actually testing the guess I just made. In my opinion, music always makes work more fun (even Snow White and the 7 dwarfs used to whistle while they worked!)

I thought I’d share this idea in case it helps any others to not dread the old dreaded tasks anymore.
