Take that Mt Everest!

Some people think it takes a lot of determination, stamina, and endurance to climb Mt Everest but really, I think it takes a lot more guts to tackle mountains like this every week.

So here's one for the moms who don't get the credit they deserve for doing "hard things"! We take it every week and keep coming back for more. Now thats endurance!
P.S. Anyone know where I can hire a good sherpa?
1. a mellow morning
2. yummy toast
3. clean counters

Wow! that's quite the pile of laundry. Are you trying to start a contest? Who can wash the most in a day?

Are you throwin' down a challenge there cathy- i'll take you on with my 6 giant loads!

Arlyn said...

Is that really how much you do every week? Did you hide your kids under there to make the pile look bigger? I don't let my piles mingle, so I don't know how much I have at a time. If it's anywhere near that, I don't want to know!

WOW! I do a load a day, sometimes 2 a day... just avoid the Mt. Everest challenge. If I don't do that, I feel like I am doing laundry ALL day. Good luck! :)

BTW- I'm really glad you are back to blogging.

I'm feeling your PAIN! Not easy keeping up with kids and husband - sometimes I wonder who does more damage...

I've been trying really hard to tackle atleast 2 loads a day - that way I can hang it and save money on drying too!!!:) Fun, huh?

becky- hanging your laundry what a woman! I am a shameless dryer lover!!

Christy said...

I say squish down as much as you can in the baskets until the lid won't balance on top anymore! It's worked for me for years.

Smart Mama.
You best not be doing laundry TOMORROW!
I hope you'll put your feet up and enjoy YOUR day!
maybe #1 could read you a book while #2 feeds you sprinkles. Now THAT's living!
Hope you have a great weekend!
