laundry & dishes.

Hellloooo!! 


I shared my post 'positive' not that you would feel sorry for me but so that I can share where I'm at to share my growth. I AM growing, I AM a work in progress as long as I am on this Earth. Whatever you are going through right now is growth. It doesn't have to make sense now, it doesn't have to be easy, but when you enter that next chapter of growth.. you'll understand it. I'm not giving up because I feel lonely, I'm going to keep pushing through because there is a reason. 



I am not going to tell life is all roses and htat if you are in a bad situation you should stick it out 'because it gets better". That's a lie. I'm not being abused, I'm not drowning in debit, I'm not a an alcoholic or a drug addict. <- those are bad situations.. I'm just lonely. 
I found this facebook group called "Mother like a boss" and it has really helped me use my time correctly to accomplish my goals without being a human Ostrich. 

So lets talk laundry. 
I struggle with staying focused. 
I struggle with creating a rhythm in my daily routines. 
I struggle with having a 'squirrel' moment and losing my day.
 One of the biggest things I see on FB groups in the constant complaint of laundry. 
You too?  It is funny. It is true. 
Dishes and laundry... they are the chores that never end.
So I decided was to tackle these chores & make them my bitch. 


 I got baskets for each of us, the towels & the sheets.   
 I started doing the load from the previous day the NEXT day. 
So whatever the kids, the husband & I wore on Monday gets washed Tuesday Morning. 
I start the load at 6am and it's folded AND put away while the kids eat breakfast around 8 am.
 Then I start with sheets or whatever my 'extra' is and I'm done around 10am.
 FOR THE DAY!
We have a green basket that is our catch all. 
When it comes off - it goes in that basket or the empty washer.
 I also wash my towels separately from my clothing.
This works for me


Dishes?? 
I empty my dishwasher every morning while I wait for the coffee to make. Then as the day goes.. I rinse off the dishes and put them in the dishwasher. Then when dinner is over we just start the ONE & ONLY load of dishes for the day. Five of us & one load. 
BUT I pre-make my meals (next post) so I don't have pots & pans to wash in the evening.

It has been a journey figuring out what works for me and this works!   
My table stays clear of stacked clothing & my sink stays clear of cluttered dishes. 
AND it makes me feel so accomplished.

I hope this helps someone else come up with way to lighten your own loads. (haha)
Have a great day!!
