A Day Late

The thing with having a teenager home for the summer, instead of in school, is that he sleeps in - to all hours. Since it's the first week of summer vacation, I haven't yet decided what time he should be getting up, so I've been letting him sleep until 10:30 or 11:00 - not so late in teenager world, I'm sure, but still late. On an ordinary day it wouldn't be that big a deal, but Mondays (yesterday) it really causes me problems.

The big problem is that Monday is laundry day. I need to get the laundry sorted and started fairly early in the morning and keep it going, so I can get everything washed, dried, folded, and put away by the end of the day. Now, when I have a teenager still in bed, that means I don't have his laundry, so I can't get the laundry going until much later in the day. So, the last load was still in the dryer when we went to bed last night. All the clothes I usually fold on Monday night didn't get folded until today. (Why is spellcheck telling me that didn't is spelled wrong?)

Yes, it all got done, but I just feel behind now.


  1. When my daughter was home, I would get her up at 9:30 am. Really early by teenager standards I'm sure, but I had stuff to do and I had stuff for her to do. I'm a morning person though, and I guess most teenagers aren't.

  2. OOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooo you still do the kids landery or how ever you spell it I have not washed my girls clothes ever sence they turned probley oooooooo 12 maybe 11 I helped them when they started but they do it all on their own now. life got much better then,,, days they do not work they will sleep till 2,, works for me they are not in my face.
