Next Christmas our little fake tree will look adorable on the top, without the heat of course. The thing practically matches the wall color, and the dancing flames are so realistic.

Kayelle?

Does your heater have a blower on the bottom of it?Little vent holes?
What's the brand name on it? If you don't mind my asking.

What are you doing?

Laundry. I can't figure out how one man can generate so much. He doesn't smell that bad.

Yep, it does CM. Are you wanting one? It also comes in other colors. Here's where we bought it.

Oddly, I was just wondering today how two adults in this house seem to create more dirty laundry than when the kids also lived at home. We're either hyper-clean or very dirty. I think we'll just start wearing our clothes into the shower when we bathe. After all, the fabric is "wash and wear".

When I had my apartment, I made sure I had enough clothes to last 2 weeks, including under garments, because I had to either go to a laundromat or a laundry room in the complex. Also, I didn't want to be washing such small loads, as I was paying by the load. I have continued that same procedure into retirement, so our clothes don't need washing as often, and we don't have to do small loads. Men seem to do more "dirty work" than women, at least that's the case in our house.

I do laundry every other week or I can get three weeks out of it. It costs me the same as doing it weekly, I use a laundromat, too! No hook-ups in this apartment.

Also easier to keep track of what is spent on my uniforms for tax reasons.

I'm home from the hospital, resting in bed with two of our fur babies and the Sunday paper, as well as the book I'm reading now. DH is outside working on building a small dresser-size greenhouse for me. It will look something like this:
