Laundry…. the never ending saga!

Laundry…. the never ending saga!

Is it just me or is my laundry out to get me? I feel like I can never get ahead of it. Just yesterday I thought I had it all done.  I’m one of those people who like to get the house cleaned and the laundry done on Thursday nights so I can actually enjoy what weekend I get off. I went to bed last night with the smug satisfaction that I had accomplished that task, only to wake up this morning to find that one or both of my daughters decided to clean their rooms and left me a huge ( like two loads) of dirty clothes. They were lying in the floor of course, because no one can seem to hit the basket that’s laying right beside it. I guess I should have their eyes examined because they are clearly blind. Nothing irks me more than people throwing clothes NEAR the basket or trash NEAR the trash can. I guess they think that the housecleaning fairy will magically show up and pick it up for them. Well guess what kids… ” THERE IS NO MAGIC HOUSECLEANING FAIRY” she doesn’t come and wash your clothes or do the dishes, walk YOUR dog, buy your groceries, sweep your floor or COOK your meals. The magic housecleaning fairy is ME! Mom! Mama! Mamacita! Mommy! ME!  And MAMA is tired of doing your laundry. So you know what I did? I separated it all out and tossed it into their rooms with a note that said, the Housecleaning Fairy is off till Monday. If you want to wear it, you’ll wash it yourself. I have 12 hours of Hallmark movies stored on my DVR and I am going to watch every bit of it. Happy washing, drying, folding, ironing and hanging girls. Think of it as a gift.
