Simple Goals

My goals for the week:

1. Put away all the clean laundry currently in baskets.

2. Wash and dry all the dirty laundry currently in baskets.

3. Put away more laundry after it is washed and dried.

4. Have completely empty baskets for at least 4 hours.

It is an impossible dream, but hey, we have to aim high in this life!

  1. I am tempted to pretend I immediately remembered the myth of Sisyphus, to feign intelligence. But as it turns out, I had to google it. Once I did, I remembered having read about him a lifetime ago, and I have to say I like the comparison.

  2. This will make you feel really good about your laundry situation…
    -The boy’s room smelled funky all week.
    -Clay commented on the house smelling like the van (the van smells like cat urine).
    -I couldn’t find the source of the smells
    -because…they were being emitted from sour laundry that was hidden from me by the said boy. How he was able to hide at least three loads of laundry, I don’t know.
    -My attempts to make him do his own laundry, pay me to do his laundry and threaten to never buy another article of clothing for him again are met with obedient, “Yes, Mam”….because he knows I am full of it, and I’ll end up doing all his laundry for the rest of his life, however short it may be!

  3. Jessie,
    No, it doesn’t get any better. I have washed an unloaded (ie laid flat on the ironing board and in baskets) many, many loads of laundry this week, but alas, the clothes have not made it to the drawers and closets. In the meantime, the hampers continue to fill up with dirty clothes . . .

    I am glad to know that my children are not the only ones with the gift of hiding dirty laundry. But hiding 3 loads worth might be merit for some sort of award!

  4. I”m thinking of just buying each child his own laundry basket and just sorting straight from the dryer, then just lining them up in the basement. No need for me putting stuff away — like it usually put away, anyway. I’ve come to believe that it is kind of a waste of motion and energy.
