When I do the laundry, I basically leave the last load in and just fluff away until it's time to do laundry again. Isn't that why they made it that way??
Moral of the story, take your time. Don't beat yourself up over housework. Your children and your husband are your priority. I typically choose one task per day to accomplish. I know that I'm not super woman and I won't pretend to be. Thankfully I have an amazingly supportative husband that restarts the dyer with me and never complains :)
