So I finally got some folding done...

Joanna inspired me to finally get my huge mound of laundry that had completely taken over my couch folded tonight. I finally got it under control. Folded up and put in the basket and on stacks on the couch it doesn't look like much, but trust me...it's a lot.

My hands were so full of sock bundles that I couldn't carry anything else. My laundry baskets are all full of clean folded clothes. So this is how I transported my underwear to our bedroom...I just wheeled it on in...whatever works, right? (Hailey's doll stroller...)


I didn't get to this chair. The stuff is mostly folded anyway, it just needs organizing...


After reading a post by Erin today I got to thinking about how unclean my house feels to me. I realized something on the way to pick up Hailey after work. I'd been wanting to go home so badly all day, but now that the time had come to actually go home I found myself trying to think of something else to do. I do this a lot. I always say I want to spend a whole weekend at home, and then all weekend it seems like I'm gone. I don't stretch to find ways, I mean I always have something I could be doing...I just feel the need to get out of the house when the time comes. I realized I always want to be home, I just don't want to be here. The main problem is the huge amount of clutter and crap we have sitting around. I can't clean well with the clutter. We don't have storage to get rid of the clutter. I don't have the time or energy to organize much either. I have GOT to do something about this. I need to feel relaxed in my own home. Of course all the noise from my neighbors doesn't help anything either...that I can't fix. My mom has agreed to help me organize and clean this weekend (since I'll be a single parent again.) Hopefully I'll be able to get a lot done and finally start to relax a little in my own home.

I need to get me something with wheels on it to transport clothes. That would be great. Maybe I will bring out the doll stroller next time. It would be a lot easier to just wheel it to the bedrooms then me carry all that stuff. I know what you mean about the clutter. Not personally, because I am Queen of getting rid of it all. My best friend has a lot of clutter and so does my sister n law. They say that it is hard to clean with it all.

LOL!! That's awesome:) I love doing laundry and folding it, but I am horrible about putting it away. We basically live out of the basket until I need to put more laundry in it! HEE!!
