A Rare Sighting

There's been a rare sighting in my utility room...


...the bottom of the laundry basket!


My laundry's done, people! There's not even a stray sock left to match up...


...and nothing waiting in the hamper to be washed.


This sort of thing only happens in my house once, or maybe twice, in a decade. It is a monumental occasion. And, of course, it will all be undone tonight, when the children fill the hamper to the brim again, but for now they're down for a nap, and I have a lovely mystery waiting...


...so, if you'll excuse me, I'm off for some guilt free self-indulgence - okay, not totally guilt free, there's still the thick layer of dust engulfing the house, but did I mention - the laundry's done?

It's great to be a homechooler.

Hooray! I have to keep myself on a strict schedule of a load of laundry daily or it piles up here as well. I am not kidding it is one load of laundry daily! Then I have to remember to fold it and put it away. There is always something isn't there?

I AM SO JEALOUS! Really, you should SEE the couch OVERFLOWING with clothes to be folded...

(Hmmm, should I now get off my rear and go fold some? NAAAAH!)

Yours all fit in your laundry basket? Right now mine is in my laundry basket and then a repurposed trash can..... It's scaring me.
I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO JEALOUS!

Wow - I can imagine how rare that is! It's bad enough with just one child!
