It will all be OK in the end. If it isn't OK, it isn't the end.

Not wet laundry. I changed it to dryer. But still. I'm being thwarted, and I don't like it.

I am making them put away their own laundry, but I'm washing it because I want it to a) get clean and b) get done.

you can fight it, or you can rock out to it

But I can probably get another husband on eBay.

This cracks me up.

I do that hang the shirts to air dry thing too, I got a big wooden clothes rack on wheels to hang them all on. I love it.

Debby, the rolling cart is la bomba. I don't know why husband cannot see that. I have been planning for years to get one, but you can't just go into a store and buy one. Then I realized I could probably get it on the internet. And yea, it was so.

One raises the eyebrow

You know, I've been saying for 6 months now that I really have to go through and clear out the junk from my closet, the linen press and the cupboard under the kitchen sink. Maybe next week.

I did clean out the freezer the other day. One of the packages (either stew or minestrone, I couldn't identify which) was from October 99.

A "linen press" should have a tweeny to clean it out, no?

I clean mine once a year whether it needs it or not.

Hey, my grin in angle brackets did not appear, dammit. I might have to do a smiley. The linen closet remark was meant to be sarcastic.

In my perfect world, yes it would. What do you call them?

edit: I knew that. Now close your tag so my post isn't italicised!

There is a gorgeous antique linen press in the consignment shop across the street that I have been coveting for a few months now, I want to put art supplies in it but the consort is adament it is not coming in to the house. I just love the name of it.

I remember a time, back in the late 90s, when I thought nonsense like this mattered somewhat more than I do now. Now I see well-educated people yammering about the birth control choices of their daughters, or gay marriage, and I think they are morons.

Toys.

Grin in angle brackets: <g>

Aww, I had closed the tag at the end of my post to see if it would work...

I did the g in angle brackets. It didn't appear. so I need to leave a space on either inside of the bracket? I do not like this Advanced HTML stuff, not at all. I need some shortcuts.

You're going to hate how you have to do angle brackets here.

& lt;g& gt;

Remove the spaces after the &s, post it and see what happens.

I'm putting together a how-to list, although Lime may give in on all these HTML wuss demands. I shall try to hold the line, though.

I never used angle brackets anyway, just parenthesis. (g)

Brigit--it is less than and greater than.
