    As soon as I figure out how to fold fitted sheets I am going to move on to solving world hunger — b/c surely that has to be easier.

      There is a YouTube video on how to fold a fitted sheet – I can’t post it as YouTube is blocke here at work, but you can search for it. I watched it….and promptly still wadded into a ball and shoved it in a drawer, lol

        Sadly, I’ve also watched that video & got nothing out of it. Martha Stewart may be the only successful person on earth at folding a fitted sheet.

        I’ve done the same ting with the videos. Tried practicing on fitted crib sheets (which I thought would be manageable) and couldn’t even do those. All the time those king sheets are crumpled on the guest bed, silently mocking me.

      Anything is easier than folding fitted sheets. That is why mine are always in a ball in the drawer. Screw ’em.

    I look forward to these posts every Friday. Makes me feel like I’m not alone in this world. While I don’t have twins, I can certainly relate to a lot of your “discoveries” 🙂 Thanks for being a part of my Friday “routine” 🙂 🙂

    Dang. I was supposed to be learning something this week? Oops.

  7. jessica says:

    Hahaah! Fitted sheets ARE the worst! I gave up trying to fold them and now just roll them up and shove them in a pillow case. And my kids get toothpaste ON the brush, but the BRUSH never actually makes it IN their mouths!!!

  8. I learned that no matter how many times I clean and organize my laundry room, my husband is just going to screw it up!

  9. sylvestwalsh says:

    I learned that the phone NEVER rings until my britches are down around my ankles and I’m sitting on the toilet!

    Please come by an read the realities of my week at: I would love your input!

    Talk to you later!

  10. Dirty cloth diapers left in the diaper bag will NOT clean themselves.

    And yes, that poo smell is probably coming from said diaper bag.

    or the kid.

    And possibly me. Because of the kid. I hope.
