Did anyone notice my baby ticker today???? I am 30 weeks!!! Wow, that has gone quickly.
I am celebrating by enjoying the sun and the company of my children in between loads of laundry. So much laundry. So much that while visiting last week, my mother offered to bundle it all up and take it to the laundromat for me, just to get to the bottom of the pile. I didn't let her, but I am so proud of myself because I am finally seeing the floor down there.
There were things on the bottom of the pile that I am sure have been down there for months. literally. We just kept skimming off the top and some items were just getting missed. So yesterday I went through the whole pile, throwing things into my colour-coded bins that I have for that purpose, and eventually hit the floor. After about 7 hot water loads of damp towels, socks and undies etc. I now only have one hot water load left and less than 10 loads (I hope!) of clothes to do by tomorrow evening.
The best part is that I have been folding as I go and making use of my labeled baskets for clean laundry. One per person, plus one for sheets and towels and one for socks. This makes it easy to get the laundry put away, especially since the littles are super keen and every time there is anything in their bins, they take them up to their room and put them away. This means, of course that their drawers and shelves are an utter disaster. But full of clean laundry that had been sorted and folded at some point.
Tomorrow night I need to pack all of our stuff for our holiday so that Brent can load the van Friday morning. Friday evening is already filled with activities, so it needs to be done early. Then Saturday we are off! I won't be taking my computer so I won't be blogging at all until I get back, I shall miss all my blogging friends! Except Shay, because we will be together, basking in the sun and making enough food to feed an army. 12 people go through obscene amounts of food at the lake, especially those teenage boys!
