I'm Coming Clean

I have a problem. I am great at washing and drying clothes. However, I have some problems when it comes to folding and hanging and putting away. I am also in denial about how big my problem is. I think I can get it done. But, sadly, this is an ongoing problem. Thursday night, it was at it's all time worst in our condo. Every sheet, every towel, every piece of clothing was clean. The above photo does not show the basket in our bedroom that is stacked as high as the bed.

I thought I could get it done Thursday night, getting caught up on TV. So I brought my pile into the living room. But then I got a call for us to watch fireworks on Chicka's roof. Guess what I did instead of laundry!!!

Look at what I did the other day, instead of putting away laundry - it's welcome basket for J's brother and his family who arrive here from Tulsa, on Friday morning - the 4th of July. 

Well, I am happy to report I managed to tackle this mountain. Everything is put away. The basket in our bedroom has not been tackled yet. I'm going to Canada on Wednesday. I hope I can tame the beast by then. 

Cute welcome basket isn't it?!

I have the exact same problem. There is usually a laundry basket or two (or three) heaped full of clothes waiting to be put away somewhere in this house (usually my bedroom). But, who cares?! That welcome basket is *beautiful*!!

Oh me too. I have three baskets right now that need to be folded, but you know what I did this afternoon instead? Sat by the pool with Normie and watched the girls swim. I figured it was a better way to spend the time and I was right.

Also I'm so sorry to hear about your camera. That really sucks! I'd be lost without mine so I can imagine how you feel.
