Laundry…The Never Ending Cycle

Standard

Anyone else out there feel that way?… At first, I thought it was just me… But I’m pretty sure we all do!

First, four people make a lot of laundry!

2015/01/img_2375.pngI used to wait until Sunday and get it all done, but that became overwhelming, especially if we wanted to leave the house. So now, try to do one load of laundry a day or every other day. It truly depends on what we have done; maybe we stayed in pjs all day, not as much laundry as if we changed, and some days I have to do a load of diapers.

I have found that I am awesome at staying on top of the wash while it’s washing and drying. However, I seem to get “distracted” or preoccupied when it comes to folding. Folding all the wash is the most annoying part! Then I was folding it all and my hubby and I were struggling to put it away… Then we, hubby and I,started living out of baskets… (For some reason I never struggle putting my kids clothes away… Actually their bedroom and clothes are the most organized!)

I quickly got annoyed with that and decided I needed to clean out my closet and dresser! It actually turned out to be a good thing. I purged a lot of items and was able to donate a bunch! Now, I had no excuse not to put my clothes away!

Well, I fell back into my laundry slump and just yesterday, reached my breaking point and had to put all laundry away!

Sometimes I wish I was smart enough to invent a home laundry folding machine or biodegradable clothing.

Ha Ha Ha! Snookie and JWoww Made me Laugh Out Loud for Real!

Standard

Ha Ha Ha! I’m sitting here watching Snookie & JWoww’s final season and I’m laughing out Loud!

They are both pregnant this season and the stuff they are talking about…it’s hysterical!

Thinking back to when Jersey Shore first aired and they were crazy “drunks” to now being Mom’s…I love it! Mostly, because I feel like it shows how life works… you are a college party person, then have a job, get married, and then babies….everyone might do this a different way, but I think you know what I mean…

Sometimes they say exactly what I was thinking… Haha! JWoww said something about a hemorrhoids…I almost peed my pants…. hahaha!

Gonna go finish my laundry cycle, watch the rest and hit the hay!

We had a really fun day today!! Will write about tomorrow!

Till Next Time!

History Posts Complete… Well at least from my old blog…

Standard

So, I was sitting here thinking “Where do I begin? What do I talk about?” Well, that’s what this blog is all about; I can talk about anything I want!

Today was a very busy day! I am actually not even sure how I got everything done?! Sometimes, I surprise myself and hubby!

Tomorrow or I should say today is my 5 year wedding anniversary! Wow! 5 Years already?! To celebrate, we taking our little family (2 kids and 2 dogs) camping! We’re g camping this weekend in the mountains… Yup, the mountains! It’s going to be cold! Yeah, we are kind of crazy! It will be all good though, there are hot showers and we have a pop-up with heat! Phew! Plus, this is what my husband and I love to do!

Ok, so back to the story… So since we are going camping, that means that we have to pack…and by we, I mean me…In order to start that process, that means I have to start the laundry…or I should say finish it. You know because I started it yesterday, but then got distracted by something else, like a dog stealing my two year olds snack or toys…just a regular day! So, I get the laundry going again, start to make breakfast, serve breakfast, feed my nursling and manage to feed myself too! So far so good!

As the wash is cycling, I decide to clean our (hubby and mine) bedroom and bathroom(insert scary theme song)…it’s two of three places that my husband and I have been ignoring, the other is the guest room…just because it’s so easy to stuff other stuff in both rooms when you are cleaning for company, because no one goes in there…Well, I was thinking this will be great both kids will be distracted with their toys and mommy can clean…Ha! Yeah, what was I thinking?

First, my son doesn’t want to do anything but watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse at the moment. And my Daughter just wants to be held. So I decide, wrap baby on my back, and Ethan & mommy will go to “School”. About a month ago, I began homeschooling 2 year old Pre-K. I’ll get into that in a later blog post.

So, we go to school and he is much happier reviewing squares, the color green, number 3, and letter D. Once we were finished there, it was time for some Sesame Street. I un-wrapped baby, changed her diaper, placed her in her excersaucer and boom, they were both happy. Now, at this point I had to go back to laundry and keep that cycle going. Then finally, I can start cleaning.

AS I begin the cleaning party, I start talking myself out of it with thoughts like, “what was I thinking? OMG?! How do we live like this? Where did all this stuff come from?” Then I think of the show Hoarders and realize I must not turn into that…so I began cleaning!

Then it was both their naptimes. I was able to successfully get them to go down for a nap at the same time and in the same room! First time ever! As I walked out of the room I did a MAJOR happy dance.

They slept for an hour and a half…then Eva woke up first.

Even though I got so much home stuff taken care of today, I think that the best accomplishment of the day goes to their nap! And I personally didn’t do that much for it to happen…funny how things like that happen?!

Needless to say, I got my entire checklist completed today…honestly, a rare thing!

Now, it’s time for me to rest! Have an early morning and a fun filled weekend of camping!

Next post will be when I get back!

Enjoy the weekend!
