We do laundry daily so there is no separate Focus Day for this. If you live in the city and/or have less clothes to wash this may not be as necessary. It taxes a septic system to do too many loads at once however. It sorta taxes mom too. ; ) I start the first load before breakfast. Change it after breakfast. Then again during our morning break and again at lunch if need be. The goal is to have all the clothes folded and put away by midafternoon. No stacks when dad walks in the door. That is the goal anyway!
I realized my recent habit of sleeping in an extra half hr or more was throwing it all off for the entire day. I have a chronic pain problem that is exacerbated by immobility. This has been known to wake me in the middle of the night and then I am up for an hr til its better again. I was making up that time by sleeping later. Not a good idea. It is better to get up like my early bird friends and then rest later, when the house is well under control. Today is already a better day. Two loads done so far!
