I’m not *that* crunchy.

Funny story.

So, I’m waaaaay behind on my laundry. (That’s not the funny part. More like a reminder of my constant state of affairs.) I had about a medium load’s worth of hand-washing to do in addition to the few loads of regular machine laundry. I decided I’d do the hand-washing in my tub rather than the sink, since there was so much. Once I had those soaking in soapy water, I went out to the laundry room to get a load going in the machine.

Apparently Finn thought washing clothes by hand looked like tons of fun. In the minute or so that it took me to load and start the washing machine, he had added about another loads worth of laundry to the tub. At this point, my washer and dryer are both full and running, so I was pretty much stuck washing it all by hand.

The washing wasn’t the hard part, though. Finding places to hang all the clothes to dry INSIDE since it’s raining and muddy was the real challenge.

Here’s a picture of my little helper. I intentionally left the red eyes. They seem appropriate for today. 😉

Have a great Tuesday!

Sunday afternoon

We’ve been taking advantage of the super-warm spring weather today. Dh has been working to clear a section of the yard near Finn’s playground to put in a swing set.

In the meantime, I’ve been planting some seedlings in a bigger pot as well as working on a kitchen set for Finn. It consists of an old end table painted red with a white rectangle for the stove. I’m going to glue old AOL CD’s on for the burners, and attach an old brownie pan for a sink. I’m still working out the faucet and the knobs, although I’m sure we’ve got plenty of things around to make it work.

I should have taken before pictures to post of the whole project. I will get some during and after photos to share later.
