i surrender!

i surrender!


my forever struggle with the laundry was finally documented today. oh it's not that i have a problem washing it... or even drying it. it's the actual PUTTING LAUNDRY AWAY skill that seems to allude me. {much to my very clean husband's chagrin.} so today the girls and i surrendered to the laundry pile.

i saw the idea for this pic on one of my favorite flickr streams last year, and thought... that is so me. here's the link to her fantastic {and very funny} takes on being a mom.

OMG! That is sooooo ME! I can wash until all the cows come home, but if my hubby doesn't put it away for me, it'll stay in the basket!! GREAT photo!

Ha...I saw the thumbnail of this on 365 and thot someone was playing with baskets....and then I came here and saw the truth............good thing you can keep buying laundry baskets

Collin said...

I suggest soaking that pile in lighter fluid and taking a match to it...

P.S. Our pile is just as big

P.S.S Liz says "Hi!"

That is just too funny! I love it. My husband does the laundry and I fold and put it away, that has seemed to work out best for us. Then I actually put them away!!! I love the photo and how fun that you did that with your girls. too funny.

lol!!!...that is a huge pile of clothes...mine looks just like that, just not as many baskets!...

That is my problem too. The laundry baskets with laundry all over the house drive my husband insane too. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who does this.

I can TOTALLY relate to this. I am horrible at putting the clothes away. I'll put my son's away but mine are always in a pile in our bedroom (just the cotton clothes, of course).
It drives my hubby nuts but, I think he's used to it by now...

I seriously thought I was the only one. I took a picture just of that the other day, and was going to document it too. How funny. Have a great day.

I so hear you on that one! And I don't have a dryer (I line dry everything). Gotta go get it all done today though because we have people coming over tomorrow!!! LOL!

Mama Olie said...

That is so me. I am actually sitting here typing and staring at the HUGE mountain of laundry that needs to be folded (never mind put away...) it has been on my To Do list for awhile now...I totally relate, now if I could just me as motivated.

I am so glad to see someone else have as much clean laundry piled up as me. I haven't seen my loveseat in well over a month. I love wrinkle releaser. It is my bff. Thanks for keeping it real;)
