It's The Little Things

I washed the towels yesterday afternoon.  I was in a bit of a hurry because Cory had just called and told me he needed me to go pick him up at school.  I missed his call, so I only had about 15 minutes before I had to leave by the time I called him back and found out what he wanted.  So I rushed to get the towels into the washer and lock the boys in the basement before I had to leave.  Then I grabbed clean towels out of the hall closet, for us, thinking I could grab the kids' towels when I got back.

But we got back, and we went to the library, and we had dinner, and I cleaned up the kitchen after dinner, and...  And I never thought about those towels again until this morning, when Cory told me how he had been so busy cleaning up after one of the cats before he could get into the shower that he didn't notice there were no towels until after he had taken his shower.  I did remember the gmat prep courses, I mean bath mat, but there were no bath towels, wash cloths, or even a hand towel in there.  So he had to jump out of the shower all dripping wet, go out into the hallway, and grab a towel.  Good thing there was nobody around, huh?

Just goes to show how important some of the little things mom does around the house are, and what happens when they don't get done!
