Mu wa hahahaha!

Today is laundry day. I had mounds to fold and most of it was TOWELS!!! When this picture was taken there was still one load swishing in the washer, one load flipping around in the dryer and a dozen loads still on bedroom floors.
What is a Mother to do?
Ah, the towels are all folded! The basket on the floor is just clothing. I watched an old movie, called "The Devil and Miss Jones" while I folded towels. It's a classic with Jean Arthur, Robert Cummings, Charles Coburn and Sam Wood. Jean Arthur is wonderful. She also stars with Jimmy Stewart in one of my all-time favorite films, "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington". Commercial break over.We had tried to alleviate the multiplying towel problem in our home, so LAST FALL I had each child's name embroidered on their favorite towel. The idea is that they use their own towel all week and then on wash day I will wash just one towel per person. I mean, after all, they do just dry clean little bodies. But, the kids just don't obey.... soooooo... MU WA HAHAHAHAHA!!!! Victor came home from work and devised a fiendishly devilish plan to thwart the lives of our towel-guzzling children.
