The dining table has been polished.
What does it say about our family that the refrigerator holds Half-and-Half, Milwaukee's Best, and Activia?
In preparation for the first overnight guests in quite a while, the guest room got an extra dusting and straightening up. Meaning, I folded up the blocking board and made room in the closet.
I also stripped off the sheets and threw them in the washer.
Only to hear ToolMan cursing a few minutes later. Seems the seal has gone out on the washer and water was running all over the floor. Sound familiar?
Of course, this happened when I have two laundry hampers full of dirty clothes, company coming, and now every towel in the house is wet. So, first we went off to Home Depot; there are some really cool (read "expensive") washers and dryer on the market now. Mom and Dad arrive on Tuesday and the new washer and dryer on Wednesday, so next it was off to find a laundromat. I had no idea how scarce those had become. And I had forgotten how icky they are; thankfully ToolMan was with me. Minimal laundry was done and hauled home and the floors dried out. We're ready for company for the holiday.
