seriously, this laundry thing is out of control...

Okay, really now people... What do I do with this crap?

In the photo you can see one hamper, but what you don't see is that there are three more like it. Also, that coffee is in a bad place and is just waiting to get kicked over, thus creating more laundry.

Yesterday, Tali went through at least three different outfits and we had spaghetti for dinner, which naturally creates more laundry.

HOW. DO. I. KEEP. UP?????

I am now taking suggestions. Every morning there's a hunt for clean socks, clean underwear, a shirt or two or three... I try to make it a game.

"Hey kids, dig in! You never know what you'll find at the bottom of the pile!"

They're no longer amused.

I wonder if there's a service out there where someone will come in once a month and take care of this problem for me. Oh yeah, and I have to be able to afford it.

I think it's time to teach the kids how to work the washer and dryer...

Sadly, that's what MY laundry looks like for just TWO of us.

I got nothing for ya. Except a Sister Wife. ;-)

What if you have the kids wear bathing suits at all times and if they get dirty you can just hose them down in the backyard. Obviously I don't have any children...

Not a bad idea about the bathing suits. Though, it's a little cruel in the snow, doncha think? Still, our summer bathing schedule isn't too far off from that plan!

Becks, you're right about the Sister Wife. But how likely am I to find a Sister Wife who LIKES laundry???

our children have entirely too many clothes, thus the pick and discard. we need to return to the gunny sack, like when I was a child. and then, accessorize!
