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!!
