UP TO THE MINUTE UPDATE TO YESTERDAY’S NEWS

Thanks to those of you who understood yesterday’s excitement over my momentarily clean house. Here’s an update:

The beds are made. No, but I did make pancakes.

The floors are vacuumed. There are Goldfish crumbs and/or old, brown leaves in every room.

The dust is dusted. Okay good, the dust is still dusted.

The markers and marbles and train tracks and doll clothes and applesauce cups are picked up. Crap everywhere.

And the laundry is done. Nope, the dirty clothes are piled high in my closet (I’ll never figure out how they generate laundry so fast) and my basement is littered with wet snowsuits.

Ah, well. I enjoyed the fleeting moment.

  1. Little Known Scientific Fact: Dirty clothes reproduce like rabbits.

  2. That’s the frustrating thing about household chores — you work your a$$ off to get them done, and by the time you finish, you need to do them again. Especially laundry. Ugh!

  3. M-Thu Wife does laundry for Newborn (9wks), 3yo daughter and self.

    Fri-Sun I do laundry for 8yo son, myself and towels/sheets.

    This new plan has been working for nine weeks and dosen’t seem to overwhelm anyone.

    What a totally impressive division of labor. That sounds like a great plan. -KDF

  4. i’m with pixie…house work seems so dumb to do and dumber not to do.

    More often than not, I hardly bother beyond the cleaning of the bathroom and kitchen, laundry, and dishes, but every once in a while, when I get in this “real” clean-the-house mode, I wonder how neatnik-types keep that up on a regular basis. It is truly never done (especially when the kids are around) is totally exhausting and leaves time for absolutely nothing else, such as sleeping or eating. Not to mention the dishpan hands! Oh, the horror! -KDF
