It’s always there. Everybody has it. It accumulates. It grows larger and larger every day. It’s exasperating the way these piles grow. We even add to it everyday, usually two or three times a day!
I have piles of darks, whites, towels, and jeans on my basement floor. I even have a whole load of pink clothes (I never thought that would happen. I love having girls, too!).
I walk up my stairs and a pile awaits behind the closet door and a basket in every room. Towels cushion my bathroom floor, they need washed too.
And I have stacks. Stacks of clean clothes sitting in baskets and on top of dressers that need to be folded or put away. There is a whole tub of mismatched socks waiting for their mate.
It’s also never-ending because of all the great help I have. I was hanging shirts in the boys’ closet and I looked down; there is Mallie pulling out all of the jeans from the bottom dresser drawer. Really?! Great help, I tell you. At least they are cute!
Here are the girls in action helping me fold towels. Usually the floor is covered, but this time I left them only one.
And I remind myself daily not to stress out. “Don’t sweat the small stuff.” Because laundry…well, it never goes away and it will always wait. And seriously, look at how much fun they are having!
As long as we have clean clothes to wear, it’s all good.
