I probably shouldn’t admit this in public, but I haven’t done laundry in a week and a half! I re-use my after-shower towel for a few days before I wash it since I’m clean when I use it and I hang it up to dry. Lovebug has about 50 pairs of panties since her sensory issues often cause her to try on 5 pair before finding one that works for the day. Evidently I have a sufficient number of my own, although not quite as many as she does, but I have been clean each day, don’t worry. Lovebug also tends to wear the same outfit over and over and over until it’s visibly dirty, I take it away from her and put it in the laundry, the weather changes, or I need her to wear something specific in which case she goes back to her favorite clothes as soon as possible.
So, today I went to do laundry and I rounded up all the dirty clothes. After that, I went looking for more. There MUST be more, where are they? In the bathroom on the floor? Nope. In the closet on the floor? Nope.
I only have 1 load of lights, and 1 load of darks. Plus sheets.
Then it hit me. There just isn’t that much laundry anymore.
Hubby isn’t here, so that cuts down on some, but the biggest reason is that Little Bear isn’t here. He would go through 2 outfits a day minimum, plus bibs, burp cloths, towels and washcloths.
I never thought I would say I missed the laundry, but I do.
On a happier note, I got to spend some time with Little Bear’s mom yesterday! She’s doing well and had visited with LB just the day before. She got to meet his current foster mom, which is very unusual and he is doing really well! He’s in what seems to be a great home – they took him for pictures with Santa, are continuing his therapy and doctor’s appts. All good signs that it’s a great foster home that really cares for him. The foster mom even gave LB’s mom one of the Santa pictures and I took a picture of it with my camera phone. Isn’t he precious???
It’s such a blessing to know that he is doing well. He’s got 2 teeth now (he had one when he left us)! There is some movement in the case and some options being considered (nothing to do with us), so I just pray that God’s hand be in every detail…and I know it is. God is good!!
