Friday's Confession (a little late, I know...)

Ok, I've already admitted my bad housekeeping skills.  Have I ever told you how lazy I am?

Lately, I don't wear anything but pajama pants around the house.  Now, you might say "Hey, I do that too!" but the real question is "How often are you home?".  I'm home almost 24/7.  So it seems like a bad thing.  Right now?  Totally into my Joe Boxer hot pink penguin, sized one size too big pants.  Oh yeah, so comfortable.
Our Buffalo chute looked like this!!

One of the things I miss about our apartment in Buffalo is the laundry chute.  Let me tell you how awesome a laundry chute is.  Dirty laundry.  Insert into chute.  No dirty laundry on your floor.  No hamper to carry down into the basement.  It's all there waiting for you.  It's so convenient!  Perfect for me, the sloth.

I also have this mental image of me carrying down laundry, tripping and breaking something...usually my neck.  Not a happy image!  When we first moved into the house and stripped the wall paper from the bedroom, there was a square of plaster randomly in a wall.  I became convinced it was a chute once, and there is actually a board on the ceiling of the basement above that spot.  It took a lot of willpower to not start breaking down that plaster.  Maybe I can add it to the list of renovations...until then, I can only dream about that little bit of lazy luxury we had in that apartment in Buffalo.  And continue to carry my laundry incredibly carefully down the basement steps, praying each time that I don't fall and kill myself.


  1. We have a laundry chute in our house and I love it. Sadly, it's on the first floor, and Andy & I shower and change on the second floor so it doesn't get as much use as I want, but it's a great way to keep the random 1st floor laundry at bay!

  2. Yeah ours could only go on the first floor too, but that would actually work for us since our bedroom and bathroom is there, plus there is always a daily pile of kids clothes on there too. It seems silly, it's only a flight but it so nice for reducing daily clutter.
