Laundry Love

Sent this note to Mom tonight:

Help! I don't know what to do! All my laundry is done--DONE--all except a few things that need to be soaked in Oxy Clean. I've washed blankets, blankies, the girls' filthy coats...everything comes out smelling so good and looking really nice. There must be something else I can wash!

Too bad I can't put the kids in there. Or the couch.

Your laundry lovin' daughter,

The First Big Step Back to Normalcy

B gave the green light today to have my beautiful steam machine front-loaders delivered as soon as we pass the electrical and plumbing inspection scheduled for tomorrow. Can I get a great big "WOOT"?! After more than six weeks without laundry, over a dozen loads done at friends' or neighbor's or mom's house, and one trip to the laundromat with the girls which I swore I would NOT repeat...I will finally be able to wash our clothes in my own home again. Never thought I'd be so excited to do laundry! Maybe there will be life after this project, afterall.
