Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


SPF: No idea what the theme is

Ok, Kristine is grasping for straws, I think. Oh wait, if I say that, she'll make something straw be one of the assignments. But, I'm not sure of the theme, but here it is:

1. Your Washer and Dryer.
2. Your Robe (if you don’t have one of these…wait, how can you live without a robe? NO ONE should ever have to live life without a robe! GO BUY ONE!)
3. A flower (it’s sposta be spring remember?)

My washer and dryer are in the garage and they were a great purchase. It is nice to have new ones for the first time in my adult life. I always bought used ones and made do. These rock.

Gotta love the Osama shooting target, the folding chairs, the coach appreciation gift given to my dad in 1974. Beneath the picture on the washer is an old broom handle used to shove stuff down in the washer. My mom used it when I was a kid. Our fall and Christmas wreaths. See the little pile of colorful stuff on the dryer? That is the pile of crap I've found in the dryer in the psat month. Oh, and a pair of baby sandals I was going to give away, but couldn't. Both Pickle and Hot Rod wore those. Stinkerbelle did briefly. Just can't part with them.

Ok, all of these things were found in the dryer, in the past month. I clean it off about every month. Ok, except for the card for my catheter from last summer. That has been sitting on the dryer for some reason.

Ok, next is my robe. I love this thing. It is a soft terrycloth, but heavy robe. It was a Christmas present from my husband about five years ago or so. It is starting to get worn out, but I still love it.

And flowers. These are from my yard. This first shot is our peach tree. It came from a peach pit my mom tossed into her yard. When it started growing, she put it in a pot and brought it to us. We had it in the pot for a couple of years before putting in the yard. I think it is about three years old in our yard.

The amarillis plants came from my mom's yard, too. An old wives' tale is that plants from a friend or relative's yard grows better because of love. I think it might be true. Almost everything transplanted from my folks has grown like crazy. Hey, there is the connection, crazy!

Go play at Random and Odd.

    My washer and dryer are covered in tools and auto parts right now.

    I didn't play.

    Gadfly - you are such a grease monkey. :) But, you're impressing the hell out of me with your vehicular adventures.

    AoD - that could have been a pilfered pen by the boy. Just saying.

    The toys don't bother me too much. It is the notes or candy or chapstick that bug me most. Money becomes mine when it is left in pockets. I consider it a tip.

    OMG! Look at all that crap that was in your poor dryer!! I find coins, rocks, and golf tees. I'm sure it will get worse as the boy gets older.

    A $2 bill? I haven't seen one of those in ages! Like you, money becomes my tip for service iffen it is found in the laundry.

    The flowers are beautiful! I like the connection with love growing better.

    I didn't play this week.
    I gotta pack a bag cuz I'm going out of town with ladyfriends for a night and a day.

    The $2 bill is a regular around our house. Army of Dad's paternal grandmother sends the children a $2 bill for their birthday and Christmas. AoD said she did it when he was young, too, so it is a bit of a tradition. That bill came from Hot Rod's pocket. He loves to play with money, so I find it everywhere and told him when it isn't in its bank, it is free game for whoever finds it to keep it. Pickle spends his as soon as he gets it. Stinkerbelle's is in her bank.

    Happy SPF, I played too.

    I can totally relate to the pile of junk on the washing machine.

    Too bad I'm better at finding things after they've been through the wash instead of emptying out pockets beforehand (good for pennies and paperclips, bad for tissues and pens).

    Happy SPF!

    My mouth is hanging open! I can't believe how much stuff you find in your dreyer! I never check my 3 kids' pockets but I never have that much stuff, not even in a year!!!
