I just want to do my Laundry!!!


All I want to do is to be able to do my laundry!! The rain has another idea. I am very grateful for rain, but couldn't it rain on Wednesday and Thursday instead of my laundry day which is Monday and Tuesday. Monday is my usual laundry day, but since I needed to see the midwife and take care of some other errands it was going to be today. Needless to say I was so dissapointed when I awoke to the sound of rain. I am trying to cut back on all of our expenses and I really don't want to use the clothes dryer. My two drying racks are quit large, but it just seems like things take so long to dry. But as a "old southern Proverb says", Use it up. Wear it out. Make it do, or do without. So I guess I am going to make do. The good Lord above has provided me with them and I shall use them.
I was so excited to mail out my tea cosy for the swap at the 'ville, but when I went to address the package...I found I only had my partners house number and street. She forgot to send me her town, state, and zip code as well. I guess I will just send it out tomorrow. I hope she likes it! I have been working late the past couple of nights on a crocheted dress for Elisabeth. THis is a dress that should have been done a month and a half ago, but I procrastinated. I need to get it done because I need to start on my son's blanket. Which I wanted done by the end of this month. It won't happen. ;) Oh well.
Even though I wasn't able to do laundry like I would have liked today the children and I where very excited to take DH lunch today. He was only working about 30 minutes away. WHich is really close for him! We all enjoyed the short amount of time together. Speaking of DH I should probably get to making supper. We are having, spaghetti w/homemade sauce, homemade wheat dinner rolls with homemade butter, salad and maybe some cream cheese truffles if I have time to get them done! May all have a God-filled day!

Melanie, do you have a fan that you can set to blow on the drying racks? Or put them in front of a sunny window. That was all I had in our last house for laundry. It was always nicer in the winter as I would put them around the stove.

In the winter I do place them over the "vents" for when the furnace is running. Most of our table fans have died. I will see if I can figure something out for today though! THanks for the thought.
