It's Mommy Confessions Monday and I'm Going Green!

Okay, so I woke up this morning thinking about how I hadn't prepared a post for today. Then I had this solution fabulous idea! I thought, why not recycle a post? Good idea or bad?

I don't know, but I thought it was a great way to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle!

Reduce the time I spend on here today, Reuse a fun post from a few months ago when I only had like 5 followers, and Recycle it!!

So here's my GREEN POST! It's one I had fun with back in June, and it's still true today! I could probably confess this every Monday for the rest of my life! So link up your confessions. New or Recycled!

If you're not familiar with Mommy Confessions Monday You can go HERE for more info. It's a safe place to unload your mommy confessions in the comfort of encouragement.

 We need to build each other up!
(Ephesians 4:29)

This post was actually my first official Mommy Confessions Post.
I hope you enjoy the recycled goods!

I'm not in a very "deep" mood at the moment, but I definitely have a confession, and it's what's on my mom mind at the moment. I stink at laundry! I know, it doesn't seem like a big deal, but it's bad! I hate it, put it off, it piles up, and takes over! I do wish I was better at this, and it really does bug me. It's also super embarrassing when it's piled up on the couch when unexpected visitors come over. The shoebox didn't come equip with a nice laundry room, so on a bad day it takes over the living room. For someone who takes a lot of pride in her homemaking skills(me), this is totally a confession!


Today while I was folding and puting away laundry procrastinating and writing a poem, I thought about it like this...

Laundry, Laundry, let me be.
Jeez O’ Pete! What do you want from me?

I wash you and dry you day after day,
Can’t you pitch in and put yourself away?

I hate to fold you and despise the sorting.
The pile on my bed is borderline hoarding!

I try to ignore you in the hopes you’ll disappear,
But at the end of the night you're still here.

I care enough about you to pick you up off the floor,
But I always feel like you want something more.

This relationship is draining me and I’ve reached my end.
It’s not healthy being with you when you just won’t bend.

It takes two to be happy and make things flow.
I give and I give, but you don’t seem to know.

I spend hundreds of dollars to remove your stains,
Yet you remain a stress and a constant pain.

What would it be like if you didn’t have me?
Oh, how I wish I could just make you see.

You’d be desperate for love, affection, and care.
No one would look at you; they’d pretend you’re not there.

You would sit dirty for weeks bathing in your own stench.
Is it too much to ask you to budge just an inch?

Don’t you see it’s me you need?
All I’m asking is for a little reprieve.

When the dryer beeps, get out, you’re done.
Put yourself in a basket. Now here comes the fun…

Fold yourself up, and put yourself away!
I’m shamelessly asking you to help me today.

Don’t be a taker, give a little too.
This is the only way we can continue.

I’ve set my boundaries and only time will tell.
Did this letter mean anything? I hope you take it well.

Love it! I wish that we could just throw out our clothes instead of having to wash them. LOL

Very cute:-) Don't we all carry the burden of laundry, feeling a little smaller than the perfect housewife when we walk by those dirty clothes, and overflowing baskets. Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!
