Hi George, Both of these mean the same thing: 1) "I will get..." 2) "I will be getting..." 'Getting' is the gerund; the current form of 'to get'. To 'be' implies the doing of something right then, so we use the gerund/current form of 'getting'. Therefore: "I will do the laundry later." "I will be doing the laundry later."

"Why does it use getting instead of get?" This is a perfectly normal piece if grammar. You can see it's a combination of future "will" plus continuous form. As to why... well, we can't tell you without context. If you look up "future continuous" then you'll find your answer.
