Monday Madness

Weekends are great fun at the Thorntons.
                                 We mostly spend time together, and forget about the rest.

For this reason, Monday for me is crazy.
4 people
x school uniforms
+ sports clothes
+ Mike's PT
+ my attempt at training myself to run
+ trips to the beach

= a TON of laundry by Monday morning

Very thankful for this washer and dryer provided by Uncle Sam

Piles of stink

By the time the school bus rolls up at 3pm, I am "almost" done
The boys Monday chore is to put away their pile of clean laundry

Does everyone have a giant pile of socks?
or just me?

I gave up trying to get the boys to take off their socks in a manner that didn't create a ball.
I just wash the socks
The big balls don't get completely clean or dry
I secret thought this would force the boys to turn their socks
right side out
and un-ball them


If you are completely disgusted that I wash socks that way
come do my laundry

This is how I spend Mondays

  1. I don't just have a pile I actually have a bucket of unmatched socks that waits around until matched socks find themselves there.
