The Crazy Suburban Mom: The silver lining of hot laundry

The silver lining of hot laundry

I love when the kid comes home from school for the week-end...


Although he brings quite a lot of stuff...

  1. Guitar
  2. Guitar
  3. Guitar
  4. Amp - Bet you thought I was going to say guitar again?
  5. Amp
  6. Amp...
  7. How did that get in there? Vacuum. He did not bring that home....
  8. Laundry from The Year One...
  9. Hmmmm, let's get a close-up of that...

Ah, yes.

That's called a "Geeze, it's a Pickguard, Ma" and it's for either number 1, number 2 or number 3. It came from Greasy Groove and they make all manner of whatever those are.

Ginger loves when he comes home because it means a ton of hot laundry coming out of the dryer the entire time.

There was an especially behemothic amount this week-end because I found the hamper in his room, an industrial garbage can really and No, I'm so not kidding about the size, full.

And as I stood stuporous over six month old, boy-laundry I was dully aware that reasons for this were floating in the air around me. I mean, each word did produced a migraine-inducing clang as it went by and all...Clothes I don't wear anymore, ripped things, too big, too small, that's Ryan's, that's Justin's, Oh, I was wondering where that was...

But I didn't really hear any of that because my head was exploding over how all the stuff had been there since before September and at the bottom was a load of towels that I knew with every ounce of estrogen in my body, went in wet. So, I set about doing the laundry.

With tongs.

But for real there is a good side.


Ginger's hot laundry thing.

She's an old girl and it's been a very cold winter for her. Even with the sweaters, she really doesn't want to be outside much. I think she's even cold in the house. But when I put the Mt. Everest of hot boxer shorts on the bed she was on it and in it and I'd never seen anything like it. Covering her little feet like that... Normally, when I get the camera she moves. She didn't. She just didn't care if I took a thousand pictures. She stayed until the laundry was cool.

I don't know, made me smile.

Ewwwww! for the wet towels probably with mold...gag!

Awww! For Ginger in the hot laundry! Linus said it best: Security is a drawer full of socks straight from the dryer! ;)

So you did do a silver

You know who's cooler than Ginger? Nobody. That dog has got it going ON. I'm all about warm towels and freshly laundered clothes. If only I could get away with laying on it until it cools. Sigh. Rock on, Ginger, friend.

Ann, I think it would :)

Debbie - It really is and that didn't even include a car trunk full of tools!

Vonlipi - Oh for real :) LOL on linus! I swear she hopped on those clothes like nobodies business!

Maureen! OMG, you're right! I did!

Lin, Ginger is quite a gal! And I wish I had a towel warmer in the bathroom , you know? One of the things I made fun of in my car but ended up loving was those seat heaters, man!

You are nicer than I am. I would have been all, "And here's where the detergent lives. Fabric softener is over there if you would like. Have fun, dear."

The Mean Mommy (lol)
