Laundry Lady at 20:11

What I'm Doing at 20:11 in 2011... I have never babied my children... I have raised them to be independent, self-sufficient young adults and their accomplishments have been their own. I have been labeled as harsh, mean and even cruel... but I wouldn't change a thing. They have both achieved great levels of success... and they've only just begun.

So, when Steel brought home EVERY PIECE OF CLOTHING THAT HE OWNS in a hamper to be washed, my first reaction was to scream at him and tell him to get busy... But, in a weak moment, I agreed to help him (just this once) catch up by washing EVERYTHING for him. Right now I'm on the third load, and there are three more to go.

After this, he's on his own. We ALL have some re-adjusting to do as we get used to living under the same roof again... but it IS good to have all of the chicks back in the nest. There is no greater feeling than waking up in the morning and knowing exactly where your children are.
