In Which

I'm happy to report
that my laundry is done...
for this week anyway
Yes, I did 17 loads in 4 days
No, it was not fun
But it was cheap
I made my own laundry soap
It only costs .007 per load
Ok, I'm not sure that is right
but I can't find my calculator on my computer
That's how computer savvy I am

Ok, I'm done writing in short sentences without periods. . . . See all those periods? Oooo and even a question mark.

Ok, I'm being a bit silly.

You know what I did this morning? I put a pad of paper and a pen by my shower so that as soon as I stepped out I could record my thoughts before they dissipated into thin air. The first four lines I typed are what came out of my head.......

OK! So not everything that I think of in the shower is profound,


I did think of another post that I am working on that is pretty profound.

So get ready to step on over
I'll be putting my best foot forward
Stepping out in style
Tappin' my feet

Perhaps sometime in the near future I'll post it.

(But don't hold your breath.)

And now I'm tiptoeing off to bed.

Good job on the laundry. I forgot how much laundry there is when kids are around--while the kids were here the washer and dryer were in overdrive ; )

Can't wait to read your thoughts--they are always GREAT.

That is a lot of laundry that you did! If only it would STAY done...

Laundry seems so eternal. It's nice to feel done every once in a while. Congrats.

The calculator: click your windows start menu (bottom left-hand corner), click accessories, click calculator. That's where I usually find mine, unless Andrew has been moving it around. You can also just type "calculator" in the search area of your start menu.

Ahhh, Jami to the rescue...Thank You! Someone had moved it out of my start menu and I couldn't remember where to look for it.

And I was right, .007 is the amount my detergent costs per load...

After I finish my laundry, I can take a few steps....look back at it, and there is another huge pile. Really, it's true.

Anxiously awaiting your shower thoughts in Arkansas:)

You are weird. Awesome, but silly!

ooo, I've been intrigued by homemade laundry detergent for a while. What is your recipe? Liquid or powder?
