How many towels and sheets do you own?

I wrote this post last week and forgot to post it!  We are only 18 short months away from Mr. Amazing's retirement from his civil service job.  Which means our house is going up for sale this spring.  Our plan is to sell this house as soon as possible and then rent something temporarily until July 2012. Then we will be off to start the next chapter of our lives in sunny Florida.

 Despite the fact that both my kids have off from school today because of MLK holiday, they both have a terrible stomache virus and I didn't get much sleep last night because they were both taking turns geting sick during the night...I decided to get off my fat lazy ass THATS RIGHT I SAID IT... and start organizing my linen closet in between satisfying their need for gatorade.  I only have about 12 weeks to get this house in order and de cluttered so it can go on the market.  I really hate throwing things out and I don't know why.

So my question to all of you out there in blogland is this....How many bath towels, kitchen towels, and sheet sets do you own?  I organized the closet to the best of my ablity and even have a big bag of linens I intend to donate to the animal shelter.  To my amazement I have more than 20 towels, about 8 sheet sets just for my bed, 3 sheet sets each for my kids beds, and I kept about a dozen or more kitchen towels.   I probably should have gotten rid of more but I just can't. We are always having family stay with us and after last night with kids being sick I changed the sheets 3x in one night.  I know I am only gong to have to do this again with our impending move but it's a start...RIGHT?  My memory card is not working so I can't post any pictures
