Ala Jo(e), If you resolve to put away the laundry...you might find you have to clear out your dresser first. And the closet. Which is full of stuff that doesn't belong in closets.
I have summer clothes, and winter clothes, and business clothes, and clothes that need to go to the dry cleaners, and clothes that need ironing, and clothes that I last wore before I was a mommy.
I have sandals, and boots, and shoes that need repairing, and shoes that I last wore before I was a mommy.
I have boxes of wool and cotton yarns and knitting needles I haven't touched since before I was a mommy.
I have birthday presents, and toy prizes, and toys and cozy baby blankets that are beyond repair (but which can't be thrown out while MM is around or he'll throw a hissy fit) which never would have been in my closet before I was a mommy.
I need to borrow your daughter, Jo(e). I'm never gonna be able to keep this resolution without her.
Through My Glasses, Dorkily
