laundry, laundry, laundry
I've enjoyed reading blogs with this topic on Wednesdays, so I want to play along today. I have finally figured out a way to get a handle on laundry. I hate thinking about laundry, I hate having loads of laundry in the baskets to be washed, I hate having piles of laundry on my chair to be folded, and I hate doing laundry every single day! So, I decided about a month ago to set a couple of days aside a week for laundry. I focused on laundry from the time I got up in the morning until it was done, usually late afternoon. It was all washed, dried, and put away. The baskets were empty and my chair no longer held clothes to be put away. This worked, but it didn't take long for me to get tired of doing laundry twice a week, so I tried skipping the Friday laundry day to see if we could last a week without doing laundry. It worked just fine, we all have enough clothes to last us through a week. So now, Monday is my laundry day. The rest of the week I focus on other chores and things that need to be done, while the laundry baskets pile up for another Monday cleaning. Works for me!
Zoe had another field trip yesterday that I went on. We went to the nearby children's museum, and then a public playground to play. The funny moment of the day was when we were receiving instructions in the museum. The lady was telling the children to stay with their chaperones, not to wonder off. A concerned boy raised his hand and asked, "But what if the chaperone wanders away from US?!"
