Forget about the Economical Crisis,

I need to talk about the Laundry Crisis. It is out of control. And no amount of roundtable discussion or summits are going to help.

I am caught in a vicious cycle right now. I don't do laundry for days and when I finally get to it, I have 9 loads. For the following three days, I do a couple of loads a day, but, as you are all aware, laundry accumulates even as you're doing it. And living on the farm (and because B.Rube can only wear everything once and must wear three layers of shirts at a time) accumulates A LOT of laundry. By the time I finally get through it by about the 4th day, I never want to see laundry again. So, I avoid it for days. And when I finally get to it, I have 9 loads. For the following three days, I do a couple of loads a day..... vicious cycle.

A bail-out is the only possible solution.

And I know just the person!

Does this mean a visit from Nanny Rube is on the way?

Hooray!! Hooray!!!

The help is always nice...especially from someone who really doesn't mind helping.

Good for you!!!

I'd keep going.................about how lucky you will be...............

but I have a load in the washer...a load in the dryer...a load waiting to be folded...and two on the floor waiting to be washed...a load of Mason's on the dryer that is folded waiting to be put away...and a load of Carson's on the washer that is folded waiting to be put away...and a load of mine and Roop's folded in the basket waiting to be put away.

Oh- and did I mention that we each have our own laundry baskets in our rooms....that makes four..that I am sure are full and waiting to be sorted, washed, dried and folded, and put away too?

DOES ANYONE ELSE GET PISSED OFF WHEN THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS DON'T UNROLL THE SOCKS BEFORE PUTTING THEM TO BE WASHED? said...

my tears flow freely as my mother just left and took her laundry washing/drying/folding/putting away abilities with her upon return to Ontario...

COME BACK, MAMA...COME BACK!!!!!!
