I feel I handle the major stressors of life fairly well. New jobs. Sickness. Moving across the country. The sadness and loss that inevitably finds us all. I honestly take it all in stride. My closest friends comment on my "consistency"; meaning, I think, that I generally don't run too high or too low. I just kinda take one day at a time, doing my thing.
The prospect of having two different basketball uniforms clean for a combined 6 or 7 games a week....
...this stress, I cannot handle.
Labels: home management
I'll gladly swap responsibilities. You coach and deal with the dozen nutty parents, and I'll make sure uniforms are ready!
Calm down, breathe deep, and repeat: "I love doing laundry, I love the smell of clean clothes, I love the smell of laundry detergent, I love the tranquil sounds of running water coming from my washer and the gentle humming of my dryer, etc. etc....just keep saying it until you get it! :-)
HA! I'm right there with you on this one! :)
I FEEL YOUR PAIN!!! Whenever you have those moments, I want you to think about me. When I have a crisis like that, I cannot simply put it a wonderfully convenient and fast American washer/dryer. My kids have to wear them dirty or wear something else if I do that because I have to hang dry most of our clothes. :-( Last time we were in the States and I used my mom's dryer, I almost wept of envy.
