A Thanksgiving Miracle

With tomorrow being Thanksgiving and all, I felt it only appropriate to share with the blogosphere my TG miracle: Almost all the laundry in my house has been washed and put away. Almost.


Since I had the day off, I seized the opportunity to do 10 or 1,000 loads of laundry.  But when your household population equals 5 and middle of those 5 likes to change clothes each day more than a teenage girl, one day's worth of clothes is like 2 weeks worth of laundry.  And by '2 week's worth' I mean because I won't be getting around to washing anything else for 2 weeks or so.  

By that time, the boys will be begging me to teach them how to do their own laundry.  It's all part of my master plan.   

I'm kidding.  But you've heard the saying "There's truth in every joke," right?

Anyway, since not everything can be clean at once, unless we become nudists (I'll let that visual sink in for a minute...) I just have to accept that 'almost' is just going to have to be good enough. AND MOST OF IT IS PUT AWAY.  

We're looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow with my mother-in-law, sister-in-law and 2 nieces where we'll consume enough calories to help us survive through our winter hibernation.  

Oh, how I wish we could hibernate.  Several months of uninterrupted sleep sounds like a dream come true (no pun intended).  Who am I kidding... I'd take one night.  Or even a morning where the boys sleep past 6:30 when I don't have to be at work.

But I digress.  I truly hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by family, friends, and  great food!  We do have so much to be thankful for!!


  1. I've been doing laundry, too! Only one load of red things left...except for what we're wearing now, but I may make everyone wear the same clothes tomorrow just so I can have one day where EVERYTHING is clean. And no showers either, because all the towels are clean. On second thought...
    Happy Thanksgiving! Hope ya'll have a safe trip and wonderful time with family.

  2. It must have been a full moon becacuse I did our laundry also. but i cheated and took mine to the laundry mat. 6 triple loads and 2 giant loads of laundry. the manager was very helpful and took my 2 loads that i had to give to good will off my hands so i didn't have to carry it home. it was so worth it and since i have done it 2 years in a row in might become a thanksgiving tradtion. it is nice to know that when we finally get home that all the laundry will be done and put away.


Comments help prove my worth. Leave me some love, because I'm worth it!
