Today's Five Minute Friday prompt is VIVID
The first thing I thought of when I saw the prompt Vivid, was that silly stain remover stuff... have you ever heard of it? does it still exist? I will have to google it when I am done here... or swagbucks... but anyhow... (edit... it still exists...Vivid Color Safe Bleach)
Vivid, Stain Remover, Laundry... Oh, yeah, I should be doing laundry, loads and loads of laundry. With a family of six the laundry never ends, and just when I think I have it done for the day, we all go put on our pajamas and poof, there is more laundry!!
Socks--now those are my least favorite part of the laundry. Do you know how hard it is to sort, match up and properly distribute socks for six people??! especially when 3 of those people are girls, each 16 months apart. And another thing, can you tell my why they don't put tags with sizes inside of little girls tights??! I have a hard time figuring out which girl they are going to stretch to fit, and my poor little girls have gone to church many a time with tights too big that slip off, or tights too small that won't stay up either!! SOO FRUSTRATING.
Back to Laundry... or is it supposed to be Vivid? I usually do laundry on Monday, Thursday and Friday. I just can't do it every day. But even when I get it washed and dried it has a tendency to sit in the laundry basket waiting to be folded until some one needs it or until I need the laundry basket empty for the next laundry day. Folding Laundry is a great TV watching task, but I think I need to do it when my kids are still awake... It's time for them to fold their own laundry, right?
The biggest thing about laundry that I need to remember is to give thanks, that we have clothes to wear, that we have too many clothes in our drawers, that I have 4 little people and one handsome man in my house with me to help make dirty laundry.
How's that for a VIVID (meaning lively and animated) description of laundry!
I confess, I went over 5 minutes because the words were just flowing, so much better then when I can't think of two words to put together!! :)
