So this is what I did yesterday. I like to wait until my laundry reaches the level of extreme sport, that way I get the benefit of an adrenaline rush. I’d like to say it’s all done, folded, hung, ironed put away but then I’d be lying and we all know that everything you read on the internet is true.
The pile you see above is mostly put away, but another pile lurks in my husbands closet. If I can talk him into it, I’ll post a picture of his closet, but don’t hold your breath. In our house his closet is known as “The Pit of Despair”, the place of no return.
Laundry and paperwork have been the thorns in my side since I moved out on my own. With baby number 3 on the way, I would pay a lot of money for a really good laundry and paperwork system. Any ideas out there? Please post it in a comment and you will be my new best friend. No offense to my current best friend but her laundry is no better than mine.
Baby number 3 means right now I’m on a mission to get control of my house. This past year the clutter has become downright scary. I’d love an HGTV intervention. Particularly I’d like Peter Walsh from Clean Sweep. I don’t think that show is around anymore but if anyone knows him or has a hookup I really need to cry on his shoulder. I’ve always known if could just cry on his shoulder for a few minutes everything would be better.
Until Peter gets here I’m going to start over with the flylady system. In the past I’ve had great success on her system which focuses on a combination of de-cluttering and building a routine of new and improved habits. When I was “flying” with the Flylady, my kitchen sink used to be shiny and my bed made every day. Right now I can’t find my sink and as you can see our new bedspread is laundry. So, I’m starting over. I’ve re-joined the mailing list and will keep you posted on my progress.
