Back in Business
When it comes to laundry, I don't hate the chore itself, but I do hate its endlessness. Sure, I can pat myself on the back for getting clean school shirts ready for the next day or finding and then washing that grass-stained soccer shirt just in the nick of time ... but there's always more waiting. Always.
It's been a trial to be without in-home laundry, but it's also been liberating not to have it as part of my daily to-do list for these weeks. Sure, I've stepped over and around the piles of laundry that have been growing in multiple areas of our house. I've watched my seven year-old head to school in school pants that are practically capris (they were old, but clean!). By default and lack of clean Costco yoga pants, a couple times I've worn pants that button several days in a row.
It was both good and bad while it lasted, but the laundry hiatus definitely helped me to carve out time each evening to work toward my daily blog posting goal for November. Part of each evening will now be spent folding. Let's hope I can be back in the laundry business and stay back in the blogging business as well.
