Crystal's Challenge

I have been dying to take part in Crystal's Challenge this week to make our homes a haven. But I'd already missed the first day and I knew I'd be busy this week and might miss more days...and if I can't do it just right, I don't do it at all...and that's why some places in my house still look like we just moved in, even though we've been here almost four years! So I figured something is better than nothing and decided to get busy in the laundry room. And, gracious, it needed some work.
This is the first thing hubby sees when he gets home since he enters from the garage. Sad, huh? Also, in all honesty, I have to tell y'all that this is not all the laundry. There were three baskets on the couch waiting to be put away. The actual laundry room is behind folding doors and it's not so pretty. The grocery sack for trash - ick. The piles of handwashables waiting forever to be hand washed. I don't just love looking at the outlet and water pipe thingies behind the washer. What to do...what to do?
And, to show you how often I clean off the top of the dryer...

That's my mom's diet coke. She was here before Halloween. Sigh
I probably won't get after pictures up until tomorrow...but I promise it'll look better today!

Laundry is my downfall. I have about 4 loads that need to be folded and put away right now.

But I'm going to make myself do it, and you can too! I'm so proud of you for partcipating!

Ohhh the laundry. It's a love/hate relationship for me. I love to wash it. But the FAPA part (fold and put away) I loathe!

Good job you for getting started! You're right, something is better than nothing!

Oh, laundry! I do at least 3 loads a day and I don't have a baby!!!

But I've come to peace with it. :-)I realize without ALL of it, I wouldn't have ALL of them!!

You are doing great!
