Trying to Tidy

It’s so cold it’s difficult to want to do anything at all, but somehow we managed to get a little bit of laundry done. Our clothes hamper has been overflowing for at least a couple of weeks and I wish I could wave a magic wand and have it disappear. Air drying clothes takes quite a while during the winter months, even with the addition of a desk fan to help air circulation. We rarely use the tumble dryer to dry our clothes but we do use it for bedding and tea towels so at least those don’t take long to process.

While I was playing Sims I was feeling a little overwhelmed by the amount of clutter all over the house, and rather than just bottle it up, I shared how I was feeling with Alex. Luckily, he was able to understand and help me pick up the slack by putting boxes in the attic and putting away clean clothes. I folded some fresh bed sheets and ironed my moon shaped pillowcase, so I wasn’t being totally useless!

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for today. Alex is filling our hot water bottles so he can tuck them under the covers. See you tomorrow!
