For those of you going through a drought, I'm so sorry, and I'm not really complaining.
But when you have soooo much wash to do, and you hang most of it out, you get a bit tired of the rain.
Just a bit.
Okay, I'm sick of it. I mean I like to hear it on my roof, I love that it waters our gardens, and hay, and in my case, my sidewalks, makes a big puddle at the bottom of my outside steps, involuntarily making my whole porch muddy and smell horrible.
Oh geeze I did it again!
So while I wait for my husband to hook up my big propane tank so I can run my dryer. (Which happens to be a propane dryer. And the fact that we've lived here almost 2 years has nothing to do with this!! Nothing I tell you!)
I go to the hardware store and get little propane tanks to hook up to my dryer (you know while I wait for Jason to hook up the big one outside.)
Well, I went to the hardware store yesterday, and you know what the guy there said???
He told me he couldn't refill my tanks anymore. Turns out they have to be reconditioned every 10 years. Mine are pretty old, but not ancient.
The nerve, right?? Denying a woman (well, actually I sent my 20 yr. old, Dane to do my dirty work!!) the right to do her wash.
Guess what?? I"m thinking my big tank will get hooked up pretty soon (wink, wink) Oh yeah, it's going to have to or we will all be walking around naked.
Believe me it won't be a pretty sight!!
