Laundry Wins

I laugh every time I post about something that seems so goofy as my laundry and get more comments than when I post something that took a lot of thought and get one. Or none. It just cracks me up.

So I just thought I’d check in today to say that I’m still on top of the laundry. I need to iron, though. Still haven’t plugged that one in my list because I would give it a priority of like 37 and it wouldn’t even show up then, so why bother?

We did re-implement the morning and evening chore routines with the girls though, and I’ve been amazed (really) by how tidy the downstairs has been for the past couple of weeks as well. Craig walked through tonight and commented on how clean the downstairs was (emphasis here on the downstairs). I began to agree with him, but then saw my desk again and said, “Well, most of the downstairs, anyway.”
We then offered up a moment of silence before what is commonly referred to as The Black Hole by pretty much everyone in the family. Lost a book? Check The Black Hole. Can’t find that form you needed for something? Probably lost in The Black Hole. One can’t perfect everything at once, you see. We actually finally figured out my superhero name: I’m The Piler. No flat surface is safe around me (or maybe I’m not a superhero after all, but an evil villain – I don’t like that as much.)

So score two for the family systems organizer and one for The Piler. Now I need to score one for going to sleep on time.

    we are more alike than we are different. i don’t want to discourage you, but i’ve been fighting my “pilot, um pile-it” status for lots of years. I have lots of piles. Little ones, big ones, lopsided ones, neat ones, old ones, new ones, ones in boxes and ones on tables. No flat surface can escape my skills. I’ve obviously had more practice than you… If you ever need some pointers on how to pile-it-higher-and-deeper, let me know!
    Also way too funny about the kind of response you get- its just that laundry is a safe topic. We all have it, and everyone knows we have it… and we know everyone knows. So, there’s no need to even waste our “denial energy” on laundry, might as well “air it out”… ha, ha. (or ja, ja in spanish)

    Hey, laundry must be a universal theme. Like love and death.
    I want you to know that, when I woke up on Tuesday, I couldn’t find my basket of clean laundry-because YOU had inspired me to PUT IT ALL AWAY!

    i’ve (finally) come to the conclusion that i need to schedule time for organizing and maintaining the “organized” life or it will never last. that is something i never think to do. in other words, it takes time to stay organized. not a huge amount of time, but it does take time.
    i like the part about getting points for going to sleep on time. i won’t ever get points for that! m

    Can you check your Black Hole for our lost library book? You never know…
    Second lost library book in six months. I’m beginning to think it’s not entirely our fault.
