One way I start my mornings well is by checking to see if a load of laundry needs to be started or switched.
Kathrynne (11) is in charge of bringing all the laundry from the hampers to the laundry room and starting the laundry everyday and then I help out by switching loads or starting an extra load, as needed.
The kids and our wonderful mother’s helper take care of folding and putting all the laundry away on Mondays and Thursdays when she’s here (they usually have around 3 loads to do because we’re averaging doing 6 loads of laundry per week).
Laundry is something I’ve always struggled with (as longtime readers well know!), but these simple things have helped us to really stay on top of it in this season.
I’m not sure whether that means I’m getting more organized or whether it means I’m just getting better at delegating or whether it’s just the fruit of my kids getting older, but any way it is, I’ll take it! ?
(It’s Day #14 of the Go to Bed Early Challenge and I kind of failed last night… I had Wednesday Bible study and then a few work projects that needed to be taken care of and then I took a bath, read a little, and hung out with my husband — and didn’t get to bed until a little after 11 pm. The good news? 11 pm felt SO late! Tonight I’m very determined to do a better job and wind down early!)
