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.

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
