  Laundry Mystery Solved

The laundry has been piling up over here, and I wasn't sure why. What had changed so that I wasn't doing laundry anymore? I still wanted to get the laundry done, especially since I don't have a ton of clothes that fit, I need decent turnaround so I have something decent to wear.

Neurofeedback is the culprit. It's not that there is anything affected in my brain that is keeping me from the laundry, it's the 10 hours a week that I spend commuting to and from the sessions, the sessions themselves, and the errands on the way home that are eating into the time during the week when I would otherwise throw in a few loads of laundry. It's not that I'm not doing any laundry now, it's just that I'm not keeping up with it all. I think if I had that 10 hours a week hanging around the house back, it would get done.

I'm going to try to make a conscious effort to fit in at least one load per day now. I'd prefer to just have one "laundry day" and do it all at once, but I no longer have a day long enough to catch-up. So I'll do what I can until the backlog is diminished, and now that I'm aware of what is causing the problem, I'll take my new schedule into account. I'll be sure to use one of my "at-home" days for laundry instead of taking W to the park or whatever I've been doing on the days I don't go to neurofeedback training. The kitchen hasn't been as much of an issue, since Terry has been picking up the slack. With me gone more, he has been the one hanging around the house watching the baby, so he's got time to straighten up when he's home.
