victory!!" Our house does not have a laundry room large enough to operate 14 peoples laundry as far as a place to get it out, fold it and await peoples to put it in its designated place!! Our laundry room is for a family of mice......ehh, SMALL!!!! We have moved the folding areas many places and recently we had a pretty good and even somewhat hidden place before we took the kitchen wall out. It was in the new space, behind the old kitchen wall in a corner, a 6 foot table holding the folded clothes!! But now since the wall is gone and it is all open space, we have been struggling. I don't want it in the LR, so we put it on my bed, but then at night it was still piled or much if it on my bed, hindering my sleepy bed time!! :) We tried to put it in the girls room, but unhappy campers there too, so we went for the boys room and well, that did not cut it either!!! So an idea came to me.....I would put it back in my room, get 4 plastic containers. One for all socks, one for all underwear, one for all bottoms (jeans ect) and one for all tops!!! I have designated folders for each tops and bottoms which will stack those items in designated containers. Josiah will gather underwear and socks and put them in their designated container. Hosanna will fold kitchen and hand towels and Mercy will fold washrags and we will put those away before the day is up. But the clothes that are folded in the containers, each person will be responsible for getting there own and at the end of the day, they are not on my bed but in the containers!!! Yippeeee!!!! I feel like we have revolutionized our laundry system!!! This idea might not work for your family, you might like it more organized but hey, my motto is now if it works for us, thats it!! All I want now is the clothes off my bed and if people want to pick or leave their clothes in a basket for weeks, it won't bother me!!!!!!! When Terry and the guys re-design our laundry room which will come after we get all the cabinets in THEN I can have it all in there!!! Sooooo, I can live with this for now......and sleep on my bed!!! LOL!!!!!
With all the snow its been a tough work week, actually a no work week as far as Ada. They have been here all week. A couple of them did go out today and did a finish up prep job for next week and then they came home. Unbelievably, next week has predictions of snow too. :( While Terry was here, he did get the grout done on the back splash and I really like it!! Today he is putting lighting under the cabinets and it makes it look warm and inviting. Little details are coming.
Now with all the snow, the cabinet fellow is delayed because the cabinet sprayer fellow is delayed, and just him getting out here is a bit of a challenge! Oh, well, in due time, God's time!
So what have we been up to??? SNOW bout 8-10 inches of it. They have played and played and ow I even heard some say they were ready for it to go away!! We have been making cookies, watching movies and the little ones have been setting up towns all over the LR. Today was my first day to get "out" of the house, Terry took me to town!
Jeremiah's 11th bd is around the corner, the 18th! So I am trying to gather ideas and things for it. Also do you remember last year we hosted our first Valentines Party for Couples?? As I thought of this last year, my goal was to have it each year, (Lord willing) and have a group of different couples each year, so they could go on a date night, but at our house where we would serve them dinner, delectable desserts and have a fun fellowship!!! SO, I am planning that!! Gathering supplies! I am setting up a bit different than last year and hope its more romantic!! So if you came last year, don't be sad, it was your turn last year, now, we gotta give others a "date night" too!!!!
Well, that bout catches ya up for now!!
