This Side of Perfect: Laundry

I have a confession to make: I am terrible at keeping up on laundry. Terrible. I have a schedule and it has worked for me for the past couple of years. Everybody knows the schedule. Even the kiddos have it memorized. But as of late, the only time I recognize that I need to do laundry is when The Man Beast starts looking for clothes. Even then, I'll usually get to so far as to wash and dry them. Rarely are they folded and they are hardly ever put away.

I could make a million and one excuses as to why I'm so terrible at
keeping tabs on my laundry. Work. School. Scouts. Laziness. (Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner!)

With school officially being over, I can't use work as an excuse any longer. Scouts are winding down as well. School? Well, that really doesn't take all day long to complete, now does it? NO.

So, I need to knuckle down on my laundry this summer. Today, I made wonderful progress. I put away the folded clothes that had made residence on my love seat for the past week. I went one step further and ironed all of our clothes before they got put on hangers.

Come tomorrow morning, I guarantee TMB will bellow from the bedroom, "Where are my clothes?" To which I can proudly respond, "Put away."

Until next time...

  1. Honestly, right now I don't know whether to thank you for being so brutally honest about this or curse you for making me take a long look at myself. For some reason the adjective I absolutely HATE when one's describing me (even my own self) is lazy. Call me fat, call me ugly, call me a gimp, call me stupid, call me crazy, etc....but never EVER call me lazy --- even when it's absolutely true. Even though I am stuck at home due to all the disability stuff, there's no reason for me to NOT be as active as I can be with everything. Now I have something to blog about....

  2. OH, I know...doesn't it hurt the ego a little bit? But by not being honest with myself, who am I really kidding?

  3. Well...I currently hate going up to the chicken coop, why? There was a huge 4 ft. snake up there the other day and I am refusing to go back, although hubby was kind enough to kill it for me. lol --anyways, nice to see you back online, Iva!!! Smiles

  4. I'm not a huge fan of snakes, Linda...I'm glad your man beast killed it for you!

  5. Yeppers, still hating snakes, LOLOLOL. So nice to see you back online. Blessings
