Slice of Life: Day 21
The laundry is out of control at the moment. We had such a busy weekend that the laundry just kept getting pushed and now here it is Tuesday night and it is everywhere. It is to the point where the clean and the dirty and commingling and creating their own piles that will soon be unrecognizable.
I had an “oh crap moment” late Sunday night as I was packing my son’s backpack. No blanket. Where’s the blanket? Ugh, it went down the laundry shoot Friday night where it now sits in his basket in the basement. Luke’s stuff washed Sunday night, dried Monday morning and the basket now sits downstairs waiting to be folded… it’s now Tuesday.
I had a late night yesterday, but my daughter’s hamper was overflowing and needed to be washed. It was taunting me. Where do all the burp cloths go? Olivia’s stuff washed Monday night, dried Tuesday morning and the basket now sits downstairs, next to her brothers, waiting to be folded… hopefully tonight.
Now there’s our hamper. I don’t know where to begin. It has taken on a life of its own. Dirty clothes on the inside and clean clothes from the week sitting on top keeping the inner contents contained. I should tackle this tonight, but my energy and motivation are fleeting. If I keep this pace maybe I’ll conquer the mountains before the weekend just in time to start all over again.
I don’t know how it accumulates so quickly. 4 people and only 1 laundress… something does not seem right about this. It’s no wonder I can’t keep up. Here’s hoping to at least get another load started tonight.
