This year I am attempting to master one of my hardest New Year's resolutions of all time. It is something that I avoid every day like the plague. Our family laundry! Yes - laundry!
While I should be grateful that I don't have to wash clothes with a scrubbing board and a bucket of water like the olden days, I can't help but dread it.
Sorting and cleaning piles of stinky socks and underware has never been my idea of fun. Every week I tell myself that I am going to do my laundry daily, so that I never fall behind. Yet, at the end of every week the dirty laundry is overflowing out of the laundry room.
I never understood how my family collects so much dirty laundry every week. Mounds of dirty towels, soiled blankets, and let's not forget all of Ella's delicate "hang-dry" only outfits from Justice.
This year I kicked off the New Year doing - laundry! I will either do a daily load, or check to see if a load needs to be done - plus I will also fold it!! I will no longer leave baskets of clean clothes in my room for the kids to ravage through to find their favorite pair of Lightening McQueen underware. Everything in 2012 will be cleaned, hung-up and ironed this year!
With not only one kid in baseball next month, but now I will now have two! Twice as many grass and mud stained white baseball pants to clean 3x a week just to challenge my resolution.
I will not quit - I will not give up - I will vow to keep my new resolution in the New Year!
