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.
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.
Grin in angle brackets: <g>
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.
Rolling laundry carts? You give better service than I do. I have a laundry basket for each member of the family. The clothes get washed and dried and then taken out of the dryer and either hung on hangers (if that kind of thing) and put on a rack next to the dryer or folded (or in the case of socks and underwear just tossed) into the owner's basket. The baskets then sit there for weeks until I offer to take everything to Goodwill unless it gets put away. The girls are now doing their own laundry so the gridlock arises from sheets and towels, but I can almost always bully some kid into putting those away.
I don't mind doing laundry at all, I just hate putting it all away, but my system cleverly avoids any of that.
Just here to note that Jennifer, you said you changed "washer" to "dryer" but it's still "washer" for me at least. A bug?
I will use the dreaded smiley emoticons (or link in the buttfucking smilies from other sites) before I will go to all that trouble to put "g" in brackets.
Debby, we have a storage room on the patio and dh put some shelves in there last weekend. I just have to get it out there. And rearrange the walk-in in the master bedroom. We have an entire storage shed we rented but this is stuff that I didn't want there--pics and paperwork, etc.
Alice, I didn't change washer to dryer in both places. No bug, just inattention.
The rolling laundry cart makes a stop at each bedroom. They have to put their own clothes away. It's not that different from having separate laundry baskets, except that the clean clothes sit around in the bedrooms instead of the laundry room, I guess.
