Never ending...

 It seems like no matter how hard I try, there are some things I can never fully be caught up on. There will always be more to do. I figured now that we had a dishwasher, it would be easier to keep up with the dishes...it's easier on my hands, that is for sure. It just doesn't mean that I will be caught up with having them done, because even when I have the current ones done, there are new ones to replace them. Now I guess I could revert to using paper plates & cups and plastic utensils, that would certainly solve my problem of having to worry about cleaning dishes. Unfortunately that gets expensive, makes more trash to have to take out, and is not environmentally sound.

Laundry is another thing that always seems to be never ending...either I am washing & drying or folding, and there always seems to be at least one new pile ready to take its place. I guess it is just part of every day life, especially when you have kids involved. Now what I would love to figure out is why kids think that they are helping mommy out by taking the newly folded laundry off the couch and throwing it on the floor? Or emptying the clean clothes from the laundry baskets and mixing it with the dirty laundry so now you aren't sure which is which and you end up re-washing clothes that you just did? Wouldn't it be nice if clothes & dishes were self cleaning and could put themselves away?? What would I do with all that extra time...I'm sure I would find a lot of better things to do, that is certain.
