It’s February. The month of Love. The month of my 10-year wedding anniversary. And to make it sloppier with hearts, flowers, and that gosh darn love is all around- it’s Valentine’s Day. This is the month that romance is bursting at the seams but the only thing I can really think of is why the hell does my laundry multiply? Instead of roses, chocolate, and maybe even a toss in the sheets (that need to be cleaned) I am trying to figure out if gremlins live in my laundry....more
This happens in my house all the time, except Baxter likes to take ownership of entire baskets of clean laundry. Now I put them on something crooked so that if he gets in the whole thing will tip over on him. Haha, I win. What's that you say? Why don't I just fold them and put them away, thereby avoiding the conflict? No, that wouldn't be winning.

I was taking the sheets and pillow cases out of the washing machine and putting them into the dryer. My husband, Marc, just happened to be in the laundry room at the same time washing something in the slop sink. As I grabbed the linens, he looked at me and said, “What are you doing?

You can tell the difference between an 82 MPH fastball and an 86 MPH fastball. No seriously, I can. Once after a baseball game Joe asked me what I thought of the team. I responded, "Honestly honey, I thought our guy didn't seem to be throwing very hard." "Well, yeah." Joe replied. "He was only throwing about 82-84. You're used to seeing 86-88." Seriously? I surprised even myself on that one.
Like most of us, I really, really do make an effort to act green… as long as it doesn’t add yet another complication to my already endless To-Do list. I know, that’s almost lame, but it’s my reality. Still, in my defense, know that I’m a recycling tyrant....more
The laundry and I are holding an uneasy truce. All the clean clothes are in three baskets piled in the bedroom, while all the dirty clothes occupy the floor in front of the laundry machine. The dryer is rumbling and the washer is waiting patiently to feed it its fifth load of laundry....more
