We saw a character on TV with the chicken pox.
Christopher: Mama look! Nipples.
Anyway, today I am in housewife heaven. I have been doing laundry for the past week or so it feels. Well I have been too tired to fold them so we, the kids and I, have been living out of 4 laundry baskets that were conveniently placed in the kitchen. Can you imagine the mess. I had to step over one of them just to get some water from the cooler. But the funny thing is when either of us needed a change of clothing, I wouldn't put it in the dirty pile upstairs, I'd just throw it in the washer, so I'd constantly be using from the clean piles and replacing.
I folded all 4 of them this morning at 4:40am before I went to bed. I could no longer look at them. Still I had a load in the dryer and one in the wash.
We had to drive to PB and even though I was trying to get the kids together since 10:30am I wasn't able to leave the house until after 1 pm. Someone switched my baby girl and left some child whom I don't know. I'll write about that some other time. But it took me that long to leave. We drove down to PB. On the way back we made a stop in Poway then we had to go shopping at Henry's. Alyssa was extremely difficult in that shopping cart.
So when I finally made it home, I had a migraine. Oh wait did I mention my allergies have been acting up at full blast! My sinuses oh boy. The last time I was affected so badly was 2 years ago. I am sure our trip to the Flower Fields didn't help. So add that to the mix. I refuse to visit the doctor until my eyes start swelling up and I can no longer wear my contacts.
When I got home, Chris was already there. He knew I had a hard day since we constantly phone each other throughout the day and I'd already told him about his daughter. In fact he had heard her carrying on in the background.
I was in a nasty mood and feeling lousy and I ran outside for some silence. When I came back in he told he was sorry I had such a bad day and mentioned that my clothes were dried. I just looked at him and said nothing. He knew I wasn't going to do anything about those clothes and my honey took both loads and folded them. Panties and all.
They are still downstairs folded neatly on the chair. I have switched fabric softeners and I'm now using Ultra Downy® Experientials ~ Moonlight Garden and everytime I pass by the clothes I get a whiff. It just makes me so happy. I actually think it's better than their Simple Pleasures Rose & Violet, the one that I was using before. To be honest I couldn't find it anymore. Was it simply sold out or have they pulled it from the shelf?
I loved my husband even more today. He shouldn't and didn't have to do that. He had a longer day than I.
