Won’t Touch That

I don’t know about you but sometimes when combining the regular laundry with a fitted sheet leads to clothing disappearing.
I was so pumped a while back when I grabbed out a sheet I had not used in forever and discovered a pair of shorts and tank top.
Fast forward now to a couple of weeks ago when T spilled something on his bed.
Having changed his sheet he tossed it into the laundry with our clothes.
And I proceeded to do the laundry.
Dried everything and tossed the sheet onto T’s bed while folding and putting away my clothes.
Also tossed a few more pieces of clothing into his room on the bed.
I wash and dry it.
He can put his own laundry away.
And if it stays on the floor not my problem.
I am not the one who has to wear it.
T was delighted when he got home and discovered the clean sheet on his bed.
Until he discovered two pairs of underwear and one bra neither of which were his.
He was most disgusted as he threw the offending items on my bed.
I laughed and laughed.
Last night T decided that he was going to wash his sheets again this week.
T: Mom after you do laundry could you please check and make sure that none of your panties or bras are in the corners.
Me: I guess. What is the big deal?
T: I am not touching your panties  or bras!
Me (laughing): I am so going to remember this for your wedding. Tell the whole tale of how not to ask T to do the laundry because he will freak out over having to touch undergarments.
T: Mom!
Me: What? I touch your underwear all the time.
T: That is different mom.
Me: How?? And you do laundry too. You have to touch them to put them in the dryer.
T: No I don’t. I wrap my hand in a shirt and pick them up that way.
I could not even.
I laughed so hard.
T laughed although he does not find this as hilarious as I do.
Oh the stories I will have to tell.
And once more we ended our evening with laughter and love.

Procastination

I am procrastinating.

Have done laundry. Which to be honest I totally forgot I had to do today. Until I used the last of the toilet paper and had to go get the rolls from the linen closet when what do I spy but my laundry basket. With both of my uniforms in it. That would have been a difficult one in the morning, having only the apron to wear to work. Somehow I am thinking that would not go over very well. So laundry is done and in dryer. Well I cannot do anything until the dryer is done so aforementioned uniforms do not end up wrinkled.

Okay laundry is done.

I guess I should explain what I am procrastinating on. I am writing a short story. I pretty much have it figured out however I am opening with the point of view of a really really disgusting slimy character. K asked me if I had to have his point of view and yes because it leads up to the children. The children are scampering about wanting to be written but I cannot until sleazer gets written. He is in my head and as I told DD I need to vomit him out before I can sleep because he will haunt my dreams.

After finishing the laundry I sat down to read a few blogs. That is not really procrastination because I love reading the stories of the people I am following. And than after reading Welcome To Our Campfire’s post A New Family Pet I had to write a short novel in response to it.

Okay now I am going to write……no see K and P are both messaging me. As is DD. So I cannot be rude and ignore them so I shove sleazer back into some dark cupboard and chat away. Well voice msg with K and P. Those are a blast and we are, I am very goofy at times.

Now I am going to write…..oh wait someone new has liked my comment on A New Family Pet and I must go and check out their blog. Bitchin’ in the Kitchen.  So over I go and am delighted to discover a new person who sounds and reads as a lovely person. I spent a good fifteen or twenty minutes perusing her blog, liking away and hitting the follow button. I laughed quite a few times. Okay most of the time.

Now I am going……..yeah I am not even going to pretend. I responded to a few comments in response to my comments. Than I moved into my room and got myself all settled in. Still talking with K who has now fallen asleep. DD is also going to bed. I am alone, with sleazer (he is in my head still not my bed) who is cackling.

I have like 6 emails to read and than I will go and write him. I really will have a bad sleep if I don’t excise him from my mind. Wish me luck.

Oh look I got 2 more emails. 🙂
