Bottom of the Basket
HUGE accomplishment reached today, likely not to be repeated any time soon:
I reached the bottom of the laundry basket! Yes, every last piece of dirty laundry is washed, wrung, and hung!! And I have the blisters to prove it. My figurative hand-washing hat is hung up with pride. These piles of laundry, they have been my nemesis since we got here; they have defeated me daily, despite much effort. I have been constantly outnumbered by laundry that seems to multiply like rabbits in spring. Finally, I get to relish in sweet victory--if only for 5 seconds! I'm considering making everyone wear dirty clothes for the rest of our time here...oh, wait--I already do that!
