You all heard the world was supposed to end Saturday, right?
Yes, really. The end of the world.
And it piled up in the laundry room until Friday morning when the laundry started creeping from the laundry room into the hallway, so before children were awake, I forced myself to start a load of laundry (just in case the world wasn't ending).
About 20 minutes later Megan went into the laundry room to get something out of her basket and came running upstairs to tell me the laundry room was flooding.
The universe was trying to tell me something: No laundry. The world was ending, and I did not need to do laundry (but just in case I called Tim who worked for a plumber in one of his former jobs, and he said he'd take a look at it later...which he did between his shift yesterday and another shift early this morning).
Bad news. It wasn't the plumbing.
And since the world didn't end Saturday as planned, I had piles of laundry and no washing machine, which meant a trip to the laundromat after Saturday soccer mania. (Go Orange Crush and Pink Bubble Gum Blasters...who both rocked today!)
And did I mention that it has rained all week? Saturday was the first beautiful, sunny day since... I don't remember when we last had a sunny day. We're floating away here in this mountain desert of Utah.
So instead of working in the yard and planting the garden and celebrating in the sunshine I did laundry. In a laundromat.
But Megan and Gabby came with me, and when we stopped by buy quarters at the grocery store we also bought a deck of Old Maid cards, so it wasn't so bad...and I only got Old Maid once.
And then there was the turtle story today. Which I won't tell right now because it's a long story, but please enjoy our former turtle stories...here (look for all the stories with pictures of turtles). And just know that there's another awesome turtle tale coming soon.
