Busy Day





We started our day off at church, came home and Chad made us BLT's..I loaded up on the Lettuce and Tomato and kept min. on the bacon and all on Whole Grain bread (which Chad and the boys dislike because it has all the grains throughout the breast and the crust is covered...I actually really like it and it's good for me!!). So after lunch, Jack went down for a nap and I start in on laundry! First I go through the 2 baskets of clean clothes, seperate them, fold what needs to be folded and hang up mine. In the mean time Chad seperates all his dirty clothes, because he hordes them on his side of the room for some rediculous reason (oh trust me though..I still have plenty of his thrown into the hamper as well, it's just insane). So there were 3 piles of his (over 4 loads), and of course I had our hamper full of clothes and Emma was given some clothes from a friend so there was lots of laundry to do...ugh.





Chad decided while I was folding the laundry to go down and get the foot lockers so I can go through the boys closet and pull out all their clothes they've outgrown (mainly Jack since Jacob's just go down to Jack), plus I had some totes with clothes in them, but they didn't have lids for some reason so I transferred those clothes and all the clothes in their closet into the 3 footlockers! Chad still needs to bring one up for my maternity clothes. I do still need to go through Jack's socks and underwear, but those will just be trashed...the socks are stained and well the underwear are well worn! LOL I plan to finish reorganizing the boys closet tomorrow. They have 2 closets in their room, tomorrow I'll have to take a picture when I'm done. One is nothing but shelves, I think there are 8 shelves and each one has 2 drawers at the bottom which is where their socks and underwear are. I'm going to move all of Jack's clothes down to the bottom shelves and Jacob's up to the higher shelves. Jacob will still be able to reach his, and Jack will finally be able to reach his. When we first moved here Jack wasn't even 2 yrs old and well we all know that almost 2 yr olds have no business being able to get at their clothes! We went through a lovely phase where Jack would pull all of Jacob's pants from the bottom shelf out, and push them onto the floor and climb onto the bottom shelf and "hide"! Oh fun times I tell you! LOL He's past that and now that he's 4, he's more than capable of putting his clothes away, picking out his own clothes (which he does now, I just have to get them for him or Jacob, or Chad!).





I'm hoping tomorrow I can also get the other dresser in the boys room emptied (has blankets in it) and put Emma's clothes in it as well. The dresser I have her clothes in now is pretty, but the drawers are not very big . Hopefully I can accomplish everything I want to tomorrow, oh and I still have some laundry to wash. I hate laundry I really, really do!





I need to get to bed, Emma will be up soon to nurse I'm sure and then the kids will all be up I'm sure by 7:30, they could sleep in a little later since they were up later than normal..I don't expect past 8 am! Well I'm off. Hope you had a good Sunday.

All the progress man has made, yet we still don't have disposable clothes.  My man is proud if he manages to keep his dirty clothes in a pile....never mind sorting them.  So by comparison, Chad's doing good.  ;o)  -  Barbara

You sure are a busy bee today and tomorrow too it sounds like.  I was that way last weekend, this weekend the only thing I have done is laundry and work out.  Linda

Glad I'm not the only one going through this laundering mess ... I'm trying to reorganize all of our closets more accessibly.  I'm also pairing down my clothes; trying to resize my own wardrobe accordingly.  *sigh* Such fun, such fun.  (And really it is when you love the ones you're doing it for. :D )

I am so glad someone besides me hates laundry so much...I have 7 loads on the couch waiting to be folded...and I folded half already :)

Doing laundry now...still! I am in the process of going through clothes that Justin can't wear anymore.

Happy first day of Fall :)

Hi Christy- A mother's work is NEVER done!  I hate laundry too- there's only 3 of us, but you'd think by how many clothes my boy goes through there were 6 of us!  I swear that boy changes 3 or 4 times a day!  Of course it doesn't help when he gets muddy and filthy so much in a day that I'm constantly making him have a shower!!  No, I am not too paranoid about germs- I think he's had enough to innoculate himself- but I have a hard time doing school work or snuggling in for some reading when he's got mud all overhimself or he's been running/playing and chasing the animals all over the yard! :)  Have a Blessed week Christy- Carolyn   PS- did you get my e mail with your interview questions?  Let me know, if not I'll try and send them off again!
