I am a planner and organizer by nature. And while I don't mind temporary messes, I also very much like things to have a place.
Sometimes though, I let things go to a point that I go into freeze-mode. My action plan gets frozen by the overwhelming nature of what I need to do. Silly, I know, especially when once I just get busy on the task, I get it done relatively quickly.
Case in point:
Laundry and grocery shopping are two things I just don't enjoy because there are too many steps in order for the task to be complete! Today, I will just woe-is-me about laundry
Gather, Separate, Wash, Dry, Hang (what is necesary), Fold, Iron (what is necessary), Put away.
Did I forget anything?!
I have GOT to stick to a schedule. I know it works and I really need to make it work again so I don't end up like this anymore:
The last two loads of ALL the laundry from this past week+ that needed to go through ALL the steps of the process. This is my mole hill compared to the mountain it was!
HALF of the CLEAN laundry from the previous week that I still had not folded and put away! It was so bad, that I had to run ALL of it through the "dewrinkle" cycle before I folded it.
My kitchen table during the Fold and Put away process. If you look close, you can see the top of my sweet boy's head!
My tackle started on Friday and was finished by Saturday afternoon!
To tackle laundry 3 days a week; Sunday evening/finish Monday, Wednesday, Friday.
And either the greatest lesson I learned from all this OR a sad fact is.....
My children obviously have way too many clothes because in those two weeks, the only thing I had to go hunting for in the clean laundry piles was underwear for my son!
