This post is about laundry

Catchy title, eh?

If that doesn't deter people from reading on, I don't know what will.

I had almost caught up on laundry this weekend - until the end of our weekend was tied with a nice croup and puke colored bow. And now there's lots of laundry again.

But anyway, here are a few thoughts and discoveries regarding laundry:

1. In my next home, I will have a separate room devoted to laundry. But not a laundry room, more like a pre-laundry room. A staging area for the laundry.
And then there won't be these laundry land mines for my family to step around as I sort colors on the upstairs landing. And when I'm all caught up on laundry, it will sit empty. (Caught up on laundry. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Good one.)

2. Buttons. We got front loading machines last summer, and the only issue I have with them is that little hands love to push the buttons on them all. the. time. I don't know how many loads of laundry I've had to rewash because they stopped it mid-wash. See - here's my washer. Ignore the laundry on top and miscellaneous items. Here is the panel of buttons that is clearly irresistible.
If they were really that irresistible, don't you think---wait. What's that? Zoom in.
No, really zoom in.
Oh! A button to push so that it locks all the other buttons. I seriously just discovered it this weekend. Good to know 8 months after getting these things.

3. I miss the stalker scent. I unpacked a few spring things from pre-Chloe the other day, and they smelled so good. Last fall I switched laundry detergent because it was on sale, so this clothes smelled like what I used to use: the magical concoction of yumminess that I stalked someone to discover. I think I'll go back to using it.

Okay, off to do more laundry and disinfect the house. Three of the four kids are sick. That means today is full of saltine crackers, water, laundry, snuggles and movies. It's chilly outside, so at least we're not wasting a beautiful day inside with the sickies. Happy Monday to you!


  1. It is so wonderful to know that I am not the only one who has piles of laundry on the floor. Please share if you find a way to catch up on laundry. LOL
    Pray all your babies are better soon.


  2. I would love to have a laundry/sewing room. It would be so nice to not have land mines all over my home and a place to fix knee-holes in jeans right by the washer and dryer. :)

    Oh, and I love the stalker post. You're pretty brave to contact her, but I might have to try that the next time I pass someone who smells good. :D

  3. I would love to find you your next home with your very own "pre-laundry room"! - Steve

  4. ....and I hope you don't shower today! forget about WIWW!!! hahahaha...hope everyone gets better soon!

  5. Growing up with 4 siblings, our pre-laundry room was the top of the pool table. We didn't play too many games of pool, at least that I can remember. ;-)

  7. If you want to have multiple sets of practically brand new washers and dryers (or TVs or microwaves) in this new house of yours, let me know... I've totally got the hook-up! ;)
