Five Minute Friday --Empty

Here's my late night attempt at Five Minute Friday... because the urge to write grows stronger every day!!  You really should give it a try sometime!

Today's Prompt from The Gypsy Mama is  



So, the laundry basket is finally empty.  I did laundry on Monday!!... Monday, people!!  Three or four loads and they sat clean in the laundry basket for FIVE days... and then my family started running out of clean clothes and we had to dig through the basket for an item or two. And the hampers started overflowing again, so I knew I had to do laundry again today.  So I did another 3 loads... and started folding.

My laundry was spreading all over my living room floor.  When you are folding that much laundry, you really have to do it in sections. My back started getting stiff, my legs started falling asleep. I had to break for picking up the kids from school, for work in the kitchen, for breaking up fights, for reading to my kids.

Then hubby and I started a cheesy movie on Netflix and I returned to the folding and folding and folding... and then it's down to the socks. Do you know how many pairs of socks a family of six makes? I don't know. I used to count them, but it just depressed me so I didn't tonight... but the important thing is the laundry basket is empty again!!



  1. You write the real things so well. It is always difficult to put in the right words in such write-ups. Great work.

  2. I was beginning to think you had abandoned me! I started this crazy 5 Minute Friday thing. I definitely find some prompts easier than others:-) Happy today, friend.

  3. Oh yes- the laundry never ends right?!!!! I hang everything that needs it as it comes out of the dryer- then the towels get sorted into one basket & the folded clothes into another. Then I can focus on one at a time. It's the only way I can keep everyone's wardrobes organized.

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind words. :) I'm a do laundry every day kind of girl. Other wise I can't keep up! So...two loads every day...Really enjoy how you write. Adding your blog to my Google reader. :)
