I removed the last two boxes from our upstairs this evening (the kids' playroom - it's the first time we've had such a blessed room, tiny as it is). What an accomplishment.
Downstairs I believe we still have two boxes in the office, two in the family room, and two or three in the garage that need attention. But at least they're all on one level!
Yesterday I took the kids clothes shopping for back-to-school needs, and the Lord answered our prayers for favor...we all hate shopping. So I washed all those new clothes today, and realized that the international laundry symbols are still a mystery to me, in my fourth country of residence (I know I've blogged about this before). I had to look them up again to make sure whether the various symbols meant dryer, iron, dry clean, etc. Lucky for me, all the items we bought were machine wash and dry, easy care stuff. Phew - I didn't even think about it, I was so happy the kids liked the stuff and it fit comfortably.
33 of my posts in the past 2.5 years (plus this one) mention laundry! Such is my happy and fortunate homemaking life, with three beloved people's clothes to keep clean as well as my own, and the time and health and means to do it in safety.
