Anybody else find themselves in the sick at work situation?
I think most mom's have. Fortunately my mom and dear MIL were generally there to help me out. Also, kids weren't sick very often, me almost never. Fortunate.

Because I knew the problems. I made myself available if DGD needed care.

Fortunately no threats of job loss!

Good morningish! Slept in today and took myself to Starbucks. Now it's time to work and do homework.
I do think I have to do the dangerous thing today and do laundry. Folding might get saved for a time of extreme procrastination. I do have to consider the risk after all.
No! The dirty clothes go under the bed... clean clothes get tossed on a chair.... or the couch
I love the idea, the thing is I only have a singular chair, that seems to always have a hoodie and jacket on it. And no couch around. I would love to say I could stuff them in the closet, but there seem to be a lot of other things that have been tossed in the closet in one way or another. Maybe I need a pile for clean clothes, and a pile for dirty ones, but both under my bed as that seems to be the only spot that I have space.

I've worked with a 103* fever. I've had the flu and never missed a day of work. There is just something wrong about that.
Not only wrong, just plain stupid and NOT a good way to run a business! How much gets done when sick employee shares with everyone else?

Maybe you could get an underbed storage tote for the clean stuff so you don't have to keep track of which pile is which.

Oh, I guess that wouldn't be any different than actually putting the clean stuff in a dresser. Never mind!

Do you all just have one laundry basket?? We have three... Plus a sorter in the laundry room. One laundry basket for dirty laundry, that gets emptied into the sorter every couple of days. The other two baskets are for clean laundry, they sit there until we decide to fold laundry. Some days we do actually fold on the same day the clothes are cleaned.

Good job Bay! I did same with my late's yrs ago. Someone with be glad to use them. Moms went to a women's center. It's something that needs to be done.

Yesterday I updated some areas in stores with new price strips on shelves. Again, price and/or size changes. Nothing got cheaper! My tip -- when buying check quantity. Ldry detergent drops several ounces per jug, same price. The previous size is normally left to "sell thru"....so look for that. Most resets are done for the year but I see huge price ticketing efforts. Some stores are very low product, others not so. If you need any TP...get it!!! Fav store out, go to another but don't wait.

Meats are already high and climbing faster. The things we raise are golden!! I have a setting hen, normally I'd break her up this late. Not this year. In fact, incubator comes to mind. And turkeys on sale this Fall....maybe not so much. :idunno Its what's happening. Higher prices, less available. Really, really hard for some folks who are income challenged. Got a neighbor in need, try to help.

So, on to more pleasant thoughts....cooler here but, still humid. Doesn't seem right. Since weekend predicted to be better I'm good with whatever comes. 😁🙄Like I could change it anyway! There's a goat auction this Sat, will go if nothing else comes up I'd rather do. It's just my social thing. 😁 cats are calling for breakfast...gotta go.

We have two per bedroom because I hate sorting whites. I hate sorting so much in college I used to take off my dirty socks and pin them together so they would wash as a pair and I wouldn't have to sort them. Now all but DH's socks are the same color and same size so I still don't have to sort them, but I'd still prefer the pinning system if I could get away with it.
