Wannabe Martha

Still trying to figure out which Martha

I’m Dink and I Know it


It’s 03 June and no food holidays!  I’m sorry – will try and get the post finished (and there’s not much you’ve missed anyway).

Things have been a bit on the crazy side here the last couple weeks – I’ve started and ditched more posts.  The washing machine seems to have issues filling and I think the oven has PMS (yesterday morning I baked some muffins and the turned out concave instead of convex – how does that happen?).

Also Iseult is annoyed because yesterday I made her sit on the washing machine during the spin cycle while I was washing a comforter. For some reason it likes to go all off-kilter and dance around the laundry room and I needed something to weigh it down.  She was handy.

One good thing tho – went to the beach last night and was reminded of the many blessings in my life.



I Give Up

It’s one thing to lose a sock in the laundry; actually, that’s more a rule than an exception.

But a pillowcase?


Mystery Solved!

Well, this explains why the towels and sheets are folded, and yet are not resting comfortably in the linen closet!




Not what I want to hear at 0600…

“Mama – did you wash any socks?”

See, I only do laundry EVERY SINGLE DAY.  The reason for this?  Daughters.  Once a girl touches an article of clothing it becomes contaminated or something.  It can’t go back into the dresser or closet.  It ends up in the hamper.  Or on the floor, where the dog sleeps on it, so it ends up in the hamper.

Deep dark secret here:  I actually like doing laundry.  (I like ironing too and the smell of spray starch – but that’s a whole other kettle of fish).  I’m happy to wash and dry the clothes (OK, I’m happy to load the washing machine and dryer); I’m happy to fold them too.  The only thing I require is that the people bring their laundry to the laundry room.  Because I DO NOT fetch.

So in answer to Iseult’s question – “I don’t know honey.  I washed whatever was in the laundry basket.”

There is a pause and then:  “Never mind.  I found some.”

Ten bucks says she’s wearing yesterday’s socks.
