Blue balls are usually not a positive thing, if you are male anyway! In this case, it's all good.
If you must use a clothes dryer, which is hard not to, consider spending $10 on a 2 pack of these dryer balls. You use them in place of those expensive dryer sheets that have that artificial perfume scent on them. Ick. They work to fluff and soften your laundry, as well as help the heat of the dryer circulate more efficiently, which reduces drying time. Naturally. No chemicals here. The balls last for about 2 years and really work.

First good thing in the financial sphere:
Something I think I'd forgotten to mention was that I promised myself to get $1000 of our cash cushion into a CD by my birthday. Well, my birthday was Thursday and I got it into an ING CD on Tuesday! Now it's earning 5.25% APY. It's a 12 month CD, so when we pull it out we'll have another $52.50. That's not much, but if we don't need it, we'll reinvest it in a CD and so forth. We'll probably take the earnings and add it to our mutual fund portfolio or somesuch.
