the state of things

The scene: bb is reclining on her bed, laptop in place. Youngest enters.

Youngest: is there any laundry for me? I'm out of socks.

bb: uh, yeah. That basket there is full of whites. I could find you a pair of socks before I wake you tomorrow - or, you could reach down into that basket and see if you find two matching socks.

Youngest: hey, I'm no MIRACLE WORKER.

He exits.

I'm SO pleased to hear you were reclining.

Hmmm, I wonder where he gets his sarcasm and dry wit? Perhaps from his MOTHER?

I agree with Kim- yay for reclining! In fact, I think it may be time for the boys to do the laundry- then you get to recline more, and they get to learn pre-college how to not turn their clothes pink in the wash. Win-win!

The laundry training - it begins!

Oh, that Youngest.

But they were CLEAN whites, right? So GO, YOU.

This is my life. EVERYDAY. Can LAUNDRY be a nemesis? I don't think anyone can imagine how bad it is. I now buy huge bags of socks - a style for my daughter and a style for my son and they just put any two on and they are good to go.

I tell you, sock matching could be an olympic sport. My niece has solved the problem -- they wear mismatched colored socks on purpose.

I have a basket just for socks. Imagine my pleasant surprise when I saw that the basket held only nine singles. Someone had done up the whole basket for me. The laundry fairies have been at work.

See? This is an example of why I am eager with anticipation. I think I should be starting to think abotu what to pack. Instead I am here checking blogs.

He would fit right in at my house. We value wisecracks.

I'm assuming that if your basket of whites is anything like ours - if you don't end up with underwear, you get two matching socks.
Funny kid! Mine won't wear matching socks, so we get along well here.

3) get Youngest an alarm clock.

(that doesn't mean you can't still go in and peek at his sweet, sleeping face before he gets his own self up and finds his own d*mn socks.)

Ah - sock matching is a tricky critter. I have tried many things to tame her and have been marginally successful.

If you can stand the inanity of it I may even post about it.
