Laundry Lessons

Apparently I've been washing too much laundry.

Or too little laundry?

Any way you look at it, I haven't been to the bottom of the laundry pile in quite a while.

I was folding some, straight out of the nice, warm, toasty dryer when I picked up a pair of little pink underpants.  I shook them out, laid them on top of the chix' pile, and thought,
"Wow, how on earth does Yell get those on her little fanny?"
I picked them up again and thought,
"Geez, these suckers wouldn't even fit on my leg!"

And then I opened the waistband.



Nope, these wouldn't fit on my leg, nor would they fit on Yell's fanny.  Apparently I should investigate the bottom of the laundry pile a little more frequently.

The little pink panties belong to my niece.

Who was last at my house on December 26.  Doh!

7 Things About Me-Myself-and I

1. Every generation in my family has multiples.  I have a fantastic picture of 4 sets of our fraternal twins taken at my brother's wedding. 

2. I'm the oldest of five kids.  Yep, you heard me.  I'm bossy like that.  (And though my sister & I fought like cats & dogs when we were younger, she's my closest friend now that we're 'grown up'.)

3. I wanted to have two kids before I turned 30.  I didn't realize I would get BOTH the month before my 30th birthday.

4. Since having the chicklets, I have become afraid of heights & deep water.

5. The year my husband was deployed was the toughest of my life.  Yell sleep-walked her way through the year -- resulting in my not sleeping soundly for most of the year.  Fun times.

6. The Muppets/Peanuts - awesome

7. I love Italian food, but the texture of cooked onions can 'do me in'.  Thanks, chicklets, for that oh-so-pleasant pregnancy leftover!
