I was just wondering, does anyone else see this pattern in their laundry piles?
Seriously folks, I didn’t manipulate this picture! This is how it looks every week on laundry day! For a split second (it was a very quick second) I had the thought that maybe I was the one with the problem (I do sometimes wear the same socks twice, that is one of my “fess ups”) but REALLY, this is SO off balance! Is it because I am the one that DOES the laundry that the other members of the household have NO remorse throwing that MAYBE dirty shirt in the laundry?? Also, when they throw it in the hamper they know that it comes back to their room folded AND put away! I mean who wouldn't want that?! Hummmm……..Times need to change.
My mother just sent me a book called Housekeeping Skills for Kids It’s how to turn your children into slaves, oh, I mean how to teach your children the skills they will need to run their OWN homes, and as a benefit, you won’t be doing so much laundry yourself!! ha ha! Actually, I was really impressed with the book. You start off and focus on one skill and work with them on it throughout the summer, and then for the school year they are on their own with that learned skill.
Believe me, when all 8 of my children have a few years into this program my house is gonna be SPOTLESS! (oh wait, I don’t have 8 children….)
On another side note, isn’t this the saddest laundry room EVER? It’s like being sent to the dungeon under the house!
In my next house I’m going to paint the walls sunshine yellow with tulips and daffodils growing up the walls, hang a fancy chandelier and put cute little puppy pictures on every wall. OK, not really, but it might make me happier to be doing the laundry.
Truth be told, and my other "fess up", I really do blog ALL THE TIME instead of doing the laundry, the dishes and my favorite, the bathrooms. In fact, it’s happening this very minute.
And just so I can give you something MORE to laugh about, (as shown on ThriftyDecorChick) can any one else relate??!!!!
