Just Keeping It Real
I didn’t do laundry a single day last week.
Without 3-dimensional capabilities, you can’t really comprehend the sheer size of this mountain of laundry. This was taken on a Sunday night, when I — out of simple desperation — had a load of jeans washing and a load of towels drying.
I have a schedule for a reason. It works best when I stick to it. I don’t really know what happened. Last weekend, I was pretty sick with a bad cold, upper respiratory thing. Monday all day I spent at a cardiology appointment then Gregg and I went Christmas shopping.
The rest of the entire week, I was off of my normal schedule and really low energy. I did things like Christmas cards instead of things like laundry and mopping. I did my 3 Chores You Should Do Every Morning and my 3 Chores You Should Do Every Night — I just didn’t do much in between.
My plan is to stick to my laundry and housekeeping schedule, and by Friday, this will be gone. So will the pile of stuff that has accumulated on my kitchen table. Among other things.
Wish me luck. Hopefully, I won’t fall in — never to be heard from again.
How did your week go last week?
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.
You would bless me if you added me to your feed reader or subscribed via email.
You can also become a fan on Facebook or follow me on Twitter. I would love to see more of you!
I think that mountain of laundry would make me cry. LOL Good luck with getting it done! :-) I find that during the holidays, a lot of things fall to the wayside for me – like dusting. Oh wait….I never dust. Nevermind. ;-)
Lol, I hear you! As full-time working parents of two under the age of 3, order is necessary! One thing that is out of whack puts everything else out of whack!
I’ve so been there! In fact, even though I was totally caught up on laundry on Thursday and have done 2 loads since then, I have one in the drier, one in the washer, and 2 to get to. Normally, that’s a week’s worth of clothes for us, but thanks to a very busy week we seem to have more linens and the like to take care. Good luck! (and I hear you on the schedule; I’m trying to find one that works with THREE kids now that we have the baby and homeschooling … and we are adopting, so I’m already trying to think like a mom of four or five so I don’t have to re-adapt. ).
It’s amazing how quickly those mountains grow! :)
Looks like my pile of laundry. My dryer died a week ago, so now I have to dry it at the laundromat. My sweet hubby is getting me a new one for Christmas.
I love seeing that someone else has a laundry pile like mine. In a given week, I wash sheets from 3 beds, 2 loads of towels, usually one load of the “other towels” like the kitchen towels and hand towels, then laundry. There are some days I can do six loads in a day.
I cannot let laundry go like this or I would have bad anxiety – for real. I can let chores like scrubbing toilets, washing blinds, making beds, and dusting fall behind when sick or have too many other things going on in life. But laundry, dishes, and vacuuming are my daily must-haves. If those 3 things are done, I can get by not doing other stuff.
Thanks for “keepin’ it real.” It is actually encouraging. On homemaking blogs like yours, I often feel like I must not be a good mom and wife as I don’t have it all together like the blog authors do. It is nice to see a peek behind the scenes — or maybe that should be screens! :-)
Haha! Thanks for being so real! I love that you are brave enough to show you are still human. Blogland can be full of “perfect” women sometimes ;)
But that laundry pile just happens! I definitely feel ya on that one. Hope you’re feeling better!
