I'm sad to say there will be no Thrifty Thursday post today. It has been a week, folks. One of those weeks. I've been handling this crazy baby. . . .
Majorly fussy. Going through a Wonder Week, the wonderful 37 to be exact. Nine kids later, and I finally learn the name of the clingy-cranky-fussy-crying-crazy phase that accompanies big mental leaps. Did I mention he's not sleeping after 2 am? Is there a fancy name for that?
And in 15-minute increments, I was doing this, which may have preserved my sanity during said Week 37. . . .
folding all the pretty fabrics!
after watching this. . . .
And once you're in, you're in deep. You gotta finish. You can't just quit. Sooo, it looks like a tornado hit in here right now, but I know it will be worth it once I'm done. I've found fabrics that I don't remember buying, and I've purged about a garbage bag-full of unwanted fabrics so far! (I'll post a before and after pic, IF I ever finish.)
But tonight, I'm doing this. . . .
Washing machine repair. I've been without my washer for 11 days. Can you imagine (please don't) the laundry generated by 11 people for 11 days without a washing machine? We have made a few stops at the laundromat, so at least the Monkeys are technically clothed, but it has not. been. fun. I will also spare you the details of just trying to have a simple replacement part delivered to my home, which also took 11 days to get here, since it had to be shipped out twice. And here I thought it would be easier for me to replace this one little part myself than to call a repairman.
Yeah... one of those weeks.
For the weekend (I am SO already there) I plan to gratefully fold laundry and blissfully fold fabric, while praying my littlest Monkey will move on from this cranky phase very VERY soon. I miss my normal semi-chaotic life. :)
