the neverending saga: laundry.

i am literally having to shove myself up off my rear to get laundry done today.

if you knew me many moons ago, you know i used to own enough (fairly expensive) clothes to not do laundry for months on end. i know because i tested the theory. constantly. you know the ol' everything's-dirty-so-i'll-just-go-buy-more approach? mmm hmm. poster girl, right here. not sure how that accounted for my shoes, but i digress.

now, in an effort to manage that massive mountain of dirty textiles (and because i have to buy my own clothes now, dang it), i try to keep my clothes and the kids' clothes to a minimum. oh, i still buy quite a bit. for the kids, at least. but i try to be discerning and buy good basics and things that will multitask.

this fact leaves me to wonder why on earth i still always have SO much laundry!

i can only conclude that laundry for four is a lot whether it's a lot or not.

I understand completely. Tamara used to change clothes 4 times a day, because she said her "fashion was changing." You'd think with 4 people in a school week you'd have 5 maybe 6 sets of clothes but it never fails that it takes 20 loads to get it all done. I think dirty clothes reproduce in the dirty hamper, but that is just a theory :)
