Ill-equipped

I hate doing laundry, specifically my wife's laundry. My clothes are easy, throw them in, add water, detergent, turn the thing on. Wait. Go play a couple of turns of Civ, watch something that's recorded, occasionally check on the little one, easy peasy lemon squeezy. Now my wife's clothes are totally different...

Read the tags, forget about it, they ALL say tumble dry low, they can't all be sensitive or delicate or whatever, right? Hang the pants up, they've got to air dry. Well some do, some you dry for five minutes and then hang. WTF? Hang these shirts, let these dry, ugh. The other problem is that if I run the dryer on low it NEVER dries. It seems to take hours as it is, on low, it'll be on all night.

In other news, I think I might actually have some fun tomorrow. I don't want to jinx it but I'm going to drop off the brat love of my life with my aunt and then I'm going to watch Thor with my cousin and a friend. Maybe hit BW3 afterwards and have a *gasp* drink or ten. Don't get me wrong, I love my family but I've gone out maybe three times since Serafina was born. Free time is tough, I don't see my "friends" anymore, and life pretty much consists of being here or at school. The last movie I saw in theaters was The Expendables.

Anyway, I think that's a wrap, holla at yr boy!

This is why Jessi and I do our own clothes separately. Yeah, a shirt or a pair of her baby-sized socks make a jump here and there, but this way there's nobody to blame but yourself. I'm sure with Serafina, though, you and Melissa have to do more consolidation of chores, and laundry becomes a "whoever is able to get to it and do it" sort of thing.

Time does go faster, but it's a direct result of having less time where you're actually able to stop. I'm sure I'll be right there with you soon enough. Enjoy Thor, and the beer.

The "Expendables?" You poor man. It wasn't even that good.

That's girl laundry for you, pain in the ass... I hate all that crap so half the time I am paying for dry cleaning ugh. Hope you get out soon. I read you saw Thor so that's cool, want to see it too and from your review I think I will.
