So today is Monday. And in my world, it's also laundry day. Ever since I entered into the adult world (i.e. college), I have been deficient at doing laundry. I just hate doing it. I would let my laudry pile up and pile up. Or, I'd wash laundry and just leave it sitting around, unfolded. Well, since God has blessed me with three little girls (who love to change their clothes), and a husband who wears uniforms to work, I have what feels like tons of laundry to keep up on. I've tried other methods of keeping up on laundry (two loads a days, etc.), but they just don't work for me. So for the past several weeks, I've been doing all my laundry on Mondays. I love it!
The only draw back is that on some Mondays I have evening meetings, but Richard is slowly catching on and has been helping me when he gets home from work.
Here's what I love about it. I'm not distracted by laundry all week (thinking I should be doing it). I feel so accomplished by the end of the day becaue I get so much done. I've even started cleaning the bedrooms and bathroom on Mondays as well. I've actually realized, as well, that there's a lot less laundry piled up doing it this way (I thought it would be really bad come Sunday, but it's really not that bad).
I've decided to slowly start organizing my life like this: having one major task to accomplish each day.
Note: I have a super-large high efficiency washing machine and dryer. I probably wouldn't be able to do it all on one day without it.
New subject: Poop. Poop is a constant focal point of parenting toddlers and infants. However, it's been more so lately because Riley is potty training. She's been doing really well. Around 18 months she was doing great, but after Gigi was born we had to take a little break. She started going back on the potty again and I really felt like we had reached the downhill slide. THEN she started holding her poop. This is a big deal because she's been holding it over 48 hours which can lead to impaction and all sorts of other problems.
But God bless the internet! I did some research and we're getting on top of the problem early, so hopefully, we'll be able to get through this without medical intervention.
