Laundry is overwhelming to me. It is one of those mundane tasks that is absolutely-positively never-ever done. I'm still working on making the day-to-day tasks meaningful. I decided to make a pledge. Truly. I went up to My Bebe, raised my hand in the air, and said:
I swear to never let the laundry pile up again. I will fold it directly from the dryer every time.
Then I made him swear, too, that he'd never throw the laundry on the floor or the bed. This has turned into doing one load of laundry per day. I know that sounds kind of awful. Daily laundry. But you know what? It hasn't felt overwhelming anymore! This is a breakthrough for me! (Lame that I had to take 8 years to learn it when my mother has always done it this way.)
