Oh look, it’s a spur of the moment birthday party game!
Who says laundry can’t be fun?
When we got home from camp on Saturday, I instructed everyone to dump all of their laundry – including sleeping bags, sheets, pillow cases, clothes, and towels – into the upstairs bathroom so that we could get started on the huge job of getting everything clean again. We have a fairly large bathroom, with washer and dryer included. The pile of dirty laundry took up almost our entire floor and was probably three feet tall. Not at all overwhelming.
Let me share how thankful I am for the convenience of a washer and dryer. Even though my washing machine is old and has to be held together by a bungee cord so that it doesn’t shimmy, shake, and explode all over the bathroom, it works and is so much easier than me breaking my back over a wash board. Bless you, Ma Ingalls. And thank you, Maytag.
I’ve been washing loads since Saturday at about 3:30 pm. I’m not even half-way done. So my question to you is this: How many loads of laundry do you think it will take to get through this pile?
This being my birthday week, the correct answer better not be 40. But the tally marks are adding up, so we can’t be sure! Make a guess, and leave a comment on this post sharing how many loads you think it will take for us to get through our laundry pile.
As soon as I can see my bathroom floor again, I’ll be back to reveal the final answer. The person who guesses correctly will win a $25 gift certificate to be used on anything downloadable in the Heavenly Homemakers Shop. If more than one person guesses the correct answer, I’ll throw each of their names into a (clean) hat and draw randomly.
Let the party game begin…
