Points to Ponder ...

This is such a lovely post, and I really needed to read something like this.

I would like to try to do this as well.

I just popped over to thank you for your kind comment on my blog!
Your plan looks like a good one. I'll check it out a little more closely in the morning. We just rang in the new year, and I'm to tired to think straight.:)
Happy new year!

I really need to do this also! I loved reading your goals. Do you really do four loads of laundry a day???? Wow! I bet your cherry pie will be delicious!

Your creche on the porch looks AMAZING, btw :)

LOL! No!! That's why it's one of my goals!!! :)

It got so bad just before Christmas that our two gracious teens took ten (packed!) 13 gallon trash bag-sized loads to the local laundromat, just to get them out of my way. (There were still a few loads at home, too).

I was trying to do all of my laundry on Mondays and Thursdays,which I started when I was a FlyLady Wannabe a few years back. Habits really do die hard, and even though I really didn't keep up with anything else, that idea stuck with me. I've been doing 10-12 extra-large loads each time, though, and since it took all day to do that, I couldn't get anything else done...so (naturally)I stopped doing the laundry. It doesn't take long for it to get out of control. Four loads a day should keep me breathing pretty easy--the loads are smaller, so I really do have time to fold them when they're done, and if I don't get to all of it on a given day, all is not lost. (I've also been trying to help the kids determine when clothes can be worn more than once. But...let's just say they really get into their play...and their food...) :)

So far, so good, though!
