Monday:Laundry Day

Warning: Do not attempt this tackle while running low on energy:-)

I knew that I would have alot of laundry to do today so I made some french toast sticks (first time) yesterday. I baked some bread over the weekend sliced it and soak it in french toast mix (milk, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar) overnight. All I had to do this morning was stick them in the oven for a few minutes and breakfast was served. The pictures below are of the bread sliced and lined neatly awaiting their bath. The second picture is of them after they have soaked up the french toast mixture. The sticks turned out delicious.
Now on to the ‘tackle of the day’. Below is a picture of my office desk yesterday. I had so many things to get ironed so I started at about 6:30 a.m. The next two pictures are of my supplies. A basket full of fresh smelling laundry to be sorted and hangers.All of the drawer items are folded and sorted.

All of the pants are ironed and awaiting their hangers. I didn’t get a picture of the shirts, but believe me every pair of jeans was hung with a freshly ironed shirt draped over it. This makes getting dressed easier for everyone especially when we are in a hurry.
My three youngest children asked could they help before I was able to even request their help. Moms, I admonish you to cherish these times because as children grow older there is no guarantee that they will always desire to help you or even spend time with you when they get older. Show them that you care by giving them your TIME.
