Laundry

Here's the post I promised I'd write a couple months ago. Laundry. I was wondering how much laundry I actually do each week, sometimes it feels like mountains worth. So I decided to chart it. For 8 weeks I put a tally mark each time I did a load. In 8 weeks, I did 51 loads. The highest was 10 loads in 1 week, the lowest was 4. So it came to an average of 6ish loads a week. That's about what I had figured before I started tracking it. And I tell you, it was pretty satisfying putting a mark down each time a load went in...I like seeing on paper what I'm actually accomplishing, more than just a full drawer of clean clothes. :-)

This post left me with just one thought in my head... "I love you, Michelle!" :) I'm still giggling over here...

Just wait until our kids are all big and we are washing their huge jeans and sweatshirts...of course by then they can take over a few chores - I mean , that's why you have kids in the first place, right?

Ha, ha, Christi's post makes me laugh. Oh dear, teenagers doing their own laundry. It is a great idea, but I have visions of coming upon a washer full of wet clothes when I'm ready to do my loads.
