Yesterday I had every intention of tackling the 5 loads of laundry waiting to be finished and folded.
Instead, while I was filling the dishwasher, I walked into the playroom to see if any cups had been left in there. I discovered something so awful, so gross, so cause for skin-crawling, that I had to ignore the laundry for another day.
'What was it' you ask?
ANTS. Completely covering a single veggie straw that had been forgotten in the middle of the floor. I was so grossed out that I didn't think of taking a picture before I scooped it up with a fork and threw it to the chickens.
That picture was taken when I came back in. There were at least three times that many just on the veggie straw. So gross.
Anyways, I took the rest of the day cleaning and scrubbing the playroom. I also took the opportunity to remove the random toys that somehow end up in there, some that should be in storage, some that belong to friends, and a there few mystery toys, no clue where they came from or how they got here.
It's insane how often I have to re-purge since I only have an 18 month old. But it's good to do every few months.
I also changed up the storage for a few things, that's a story for another day.
Sometimes things don't go as planned, and that's ok. Make the best of it, your to-do list can wait.
