#project330: Pressed and Starched

#project330 continues today with another glimpse into my life…

Life isn’t always roses and sunshine. And if you wonder what the bane of my existence is, it’s sitting in the corner of my bedroom, taunting me as it seemingly multiplies and stacks higher and higher.

Yes, it’s name is the bane.

I’ve currently got a GIANT pile of ironing calling my name, and I just can’t seem to keep up with it.

Dry cleaners exist for this very reason. I know. But for a long time, I’ve been too stubborn to ask for help and have continually fallen behind.

It’s fitting that I share this post with y’all today because this morning, I’m actually taking all the dress shirts to be pressed. Because sometimes, you gotta admit defeat. Though I will say that all the casual dress shirts and other wrinkled atrocities that are currently stacked up in the bedroom still call my name. And this time, I’m not going to let them win.

… When thinking about ideas for this Everyday Life portion of #project330, I knew I wanted to share some of the less-than-pretty aspects of daily life. And this? Well, this is the unpretty part of my life.

Speaking of unpretty, I must return to what is left of the bane…

    Katherine - I know you tweeted that you know the solution is an easy fix, and perhaps it could be something you receive as a 30th birthday gift: a steamer. And from then on, non-iron shirts! 😉 On an aside, I use the permanent press setting on my dryer to help prevent wrinkles. Might be something to check if you’re not already using it. Keeps ironing to a minimum in my house, which is great, because Pearl never offers to help.ReplyCancel
