Ok, I have wasted this entire week, seriously! I got our vacation laundry done, which was quite a task in and of itself, but other than that and vacuuming...NOTHIN'! So.... I am going to try and accomplish something today. 1st up: Tell you about my super powers which include:
1. thinking I can wash wool
2. thinking I can put ANYTHING in the dishwasher.
I don't know why I believe myself to have these super powers because they seem to fail me every time! It started back in college when I washed a wool sweater of my Dads. When I pulled it out of the dryer (oh, did I mention I also believe I can DRY wool) it fit me. My dad is 6'1", I am 4' 11-3/4". Six years ago the power seemed to come back to me when I threw a really cute Free People wool sweater in the wash, it came out size 2T, well except for the belt, which apparently wasn't wool and still about 4-1/2 feet long! This time the sweater went to Darling!
Look what a little chunky monkey my baby was!! Seriously, I can't quit laughing at this picture! She looks like a (very cute) little Asian munchkin! I swear I don't remember her being a chunk, she has always been SO tiny! Oh, she is growing up WAY too fast...WAY too fast!
So anyway, my next super power started with a great idea... washing the paint brush I'd just used on my WALLS in the HOT dishwasher. Ever see a dishwasher and dishes covered with cooked pieces of khaki paint? I have!! Several years later I had these adorable red glasses (i KNOW, i KNOW!!!). One day I noticed how dirty they are between the lens and frame, so I think "geesh, I bet I could deep clean these babies in the dishwasher!!". I put them on the top rack, 'cause I'm cautious like that and head out to run some errands. As I pull out of my driveway I think "hmmm, i wonder if the heat dry cycle is going to be good for those frames?"... I wish I had a picture but maybe you can picture what a HOT dishwasher does to a pair of plastic frames...it wasn't pretty! It was actually quite sculptural!
Oh, now that you know I'm a Super Dork, I'm going to go do something that does not include plastic, wool or heat!
Check back tomorrow for Random Friday!!
