In the midst of daily challenges, it is a comfort to know we can always count on two things.
1. Laundry. We hang stuff out every day unless it is raining (and even in the rain--there is a roof over the poles). Now that it's colder, the clothes are larger (!) so if we have two days of laundry, it's a tight fit in our little washer. When I was packing, I did not realize that I'd only need three pairs of pants for each boy. One on their bodies, and two on the line.
This image is taken of our clothes hanging out at night. It may be foreign, but I see nothing wrong with hanging it out the night before!
2. Dust. These two images are taken literally 3 days after Darrin vacuumed the entire house for an hour:
Five people in four rooms? Check. Constant movement of bedding, in and out of the closet? Check. No dryer to collect all that lint? Check.
Excuse me, I have to go vacuum and hang out the laundry....
