The Fog is Clearing
Have you ever had a crazy week followed by a crazier week? It feels like I've been dashing through everything in a kind of haze. Well, the fog is finally clearing and I don't like what I'm seeing. I've been so busy with everything else in the world that my house cleaning and laundry were put on the back burner. I feel like someone crept into my house last night and wore all our clothes and destroyed the house. Because it didn't look this bad yesterday... did it? I've got mountains and mountains of laundry to do. Toys can be found in every room of the house. Food crumbs flow from one room to the next. Dishes are stacked precariously in the sink and on the counters. Perhaps I should volunteer for something else so that I don't have to attack my dirty house today... okay, maybe not. Red just informed me that he doesn't have any clean clothes. I checked his drawer... he's right. Sigh. No way to avoid this problem. Sometimes I envy those who live in nudist colonies. No laundry. And then I remember that I would have to be without clothing all the time. Then I'm not so envious. So, I suppose I'll do laundry.
I am going to try to hunt down all the blog posts I've missed the last few days. Hopefully in between loads of laundry and dishes. Okay, maybe not ALL of the blog posts. There's over 100 again. You people are bloggin fools!

I'm sending a big hug! I wish I lived closer, so I could come over and give you a hand. Do you have any chocolate left? ;)

When I first heard your music, I thought for sure that "Thriller" was coming on.

I hate that feeling when you know how much you have to do, but wonder how in the world it could have gotten this bad!

Yeah, sometimes I think the nudists might have the right idea. No laundry, no stains, and think how much money they save on clothes!!! Funny.

Here's a secret. On occasion, my boys wear dirty socks or underwear to school. Don't tell anyone!

Welcome back. Good luck on all that cleaning. I know how it is. I've been there!

someone really needs to come up with disposable clothing that you could just use once in a while like paper plates

Oh,,,,, I don't like those weeks. I clean best when I'm under pressure - like having a cooking class at my house last night for the priests and laurels. Today my kitchen is sparkling. Too bad about all last week! (*snicker*)

I'm giggling - you're so cute! Yesterday I found myself coming out of a similar fog. So I did up a standard blog comment along the lines of, I read, I loved, I have no time to be creative. Saved me half an hour at least! =P

Now this is a perfect Halloween post! I've had this nightmare before!

Good luck with getting it all done. I know you will.

Oh man...I hate laundry. Here is my solution: I love to shop. I buy clothes alot. I can probably go a month without doing laundry..and I do :)

Oh girl, I can so relate right now. My house was a pit for 2 weeks because my son was sick and then I was sick for a little over 2 weeks. Don't worry to much because the counter will still be there when you remove all the dishes and I hear that sheets and towels will work in a pinch for clothes for the kiddos :o)

i hate hearing those words... "i have no clean clothes" or "there is literally nothing to eat." i'd like to think the words exaggerate the situation, but on further inspection - it's the gosh darn truth.

i don't know if i hate it so much because i feel guilty (which i really do) or because i have to act in a timely manner to remedy the situation.

oh, the joys of motherhood =]

Nudist colony, LOL! :D

Lauren speaketh the truth.
