  • I do the washing part of laundry. I'm trying to teach my kids responsibility and chores. Once I'm done folding laundry and putting each persons in their own pile, said person puts their own pile away. (Said persons' being 9 year old boy and 7 year old boy). So after they "put away" their laundry, I usually call them back to their rooms to put away correctly. Seems to make the process longer... but hopefully my point that we all help out is getting through. lol

  • Bonnie, I love your blogs! I had to smile when I read "soap is necessary". Back in the 80's I had five women working at our front desk and we always purchased dressy uniforms for them. One year the tops were light blue and were worn with a white pleated skirt. One day, I noticed that one of the ladies had on a very dingy outfit (more grey than blue or white) so I asked her what kind of detergent she was using. She said, "Oh, I don't need detergent - my laundry gets perfectly clean without it!" I think I must have looked pretty shocked, but I said, "Well, please go stand next to "Mary" and look at the difference in your uniforms". I guess she must have bought detergent on the way home from work - her uniforms started to look better!

  • Thank you everyone for your stories. I have had a little writer's block and was feeling as though I should quit. I appreciate your support.

  • It's funny that you say our laundry may parallel how good or bad our lives are going. I noticed this morning my hamper is over flowing, more so than it has in a very long time.

    Right now in life I have a lot of unanswered questions. Where we'll be in just a few weeks or months is unknown to me right now. Life is GOOD, don't get me wrong, but change is on the rise.

    I think you're right!

    Laundry is kind of one of those necessary evils, of you care to be presentable.

    I taught all my children quite young how to do their own laundry, and I'm sure they appreciate it now.

    One of my favorite things is my clothes line. There is nothing to rival the fresh scent of cloths dried in Fresh Idaho Breezes. Sheets dried on the line and put on a bed envelope a room in warm sunny air. .

    I love your blogs too Bonnie, and I sure get the thought of wondering if anyone cares.

    Keep it up, your thoughts are appreciated!

    I'll possibly start back again before too long. Where we are now WiFi is a bit expensive, so I just don't use it.
