How many loads?

How many loads of dishes or laundry have you had to do at one time to get caught up?

Having all the kids home for the last two weeks + holidays + traveling + having company over has kicked our asses.

I am on my 5th load of dishes (we have a small dishwasher) and have about 12 loads of laundry to do.

We have learned not to let them pile up no matter what, otherwise we too have had to do things like that.  We do each basket as it gets full and dishes get done two times a day by hand.

I had 10 or 11 loads of laundry to wash at a friend's house when my washer broke. That's the most I've ever had.

The woman in the avi pic is not me, she is my inspiration.  I am a wife, a mother, and an aspiring trainer and nutritionist. I love seeing people get fit and healthy to lead the lives they are meant to live.

Smart lady.

I wish I had a laundry chute in my house... that is what I have decided today. Hauling baskets of laundry up and down stairs sucks.

3 loads of dishes and five loads of laundry.

We don't have a dishwasher so I have to do them as we make them. Usually wash 4 loads of dishes a day, we cook from scratch so have a lot of pots and pans and mixing bowls to do.

I've been good about getting laundry done but I have like 5 loads to put away. Yuck.

Dishes I do everyday. Usually run the dishwasher once every 2 days. We do 4 loads of laundry a week. It should probably be 5 be we stuff that shit!
