Don't Call Me Martha Stewart

Does anyone else do this? I am currently washing a load of towels for the THIRD TIME! Why am I washing he same load of towels for the third time? I guess because I'm lazy. I don't know why. I put this particular load of towels in the wash two days ago. I keep forgetting to put them in the dryer and have to rewash them so they won't smell like mildew. I am wasting so much water and energy (please don't call Gore on me!). Seriously, I need to get better in this area. I do this constantly!
And if you knew how much I clean (ok, not so much clean but more like straighten up), you would think I would have the most spotless house in the world. I don't! Every day it looks as if I've done nothing around this place. How I wish I were one of those people who are compulsive about being clean and neat (yes, a neat freak). I would LOVE that. The thing is I abhor mess clutter, really I do...I loathe it. However, I am so messy. It's awful! It puts me in the worst mood when I have to step over mess to get where I'm going. So as you can imagine, I am constantly stressed over my mess.
The Bible says that our God is an orderly God and that things should be kept in an orderly way. This is definitely an area I need to grow in! Those of you neat freaks out there...just think of me when you see those hoarders on Oprah (honestly, I'm not that bad, but I do have a lot of clutter). One day, I hope I'll be writing to say I'm cured of my messiness. I don't know when it will happen, but I have faith that it will happen. It happened to my mom, so that gives me hope. :)
And on another subject...what is up with the dawgs?! They need to step up before Kentucky takes 'em down!

Go you!! You made it through the weekend.

It is tough to really clean things with the little ones around. I've recently just done it anyway. I don't do anything as thorough or as quickly as I did pre-kids. It is worth it though!

I remember my husband's brother and family lived with us for a few months and I remember being so amazed at how much laundry she did. I did laundry one evening per week and cleaned one day per week and I was done. His wife was ALWAYS doing laundry and I could NOT believe 2 little kids could add so much chaos to laundry. So I find myself never seeing the end of the laundry basket now. It makes me smile. I love my kiddos!!

By the way - I am sorry Georgia won! hee hee I am sure you felt my bad wishes. :)

Never washed a load of towels three times. Won't heaven be nice - no mold, I figure.
