Is there a creek somewhere with large rocks? I need to do laundry.

The washing machine is officially dead. It has been slowly dying ever since the lightning strike in early July left the 4 most expensive things (and 3 smaller things) in our home 51% dead. 51% dead is a very irritating for things to be. At 100%, you clearly replace items. At 5%, you shrug it off. At 40% you deal with it begrudgingly. At 75% you begin looking for sales. At 30%, you repair.

At 51% you merely stare at your bank statement and groan inwardly.

So, in lieu of laundry, the girls are embracing the 'reduce, reuse, recycle' mantra.

(Okay, these were actually taken a month ago after the first time the washer died. But I kid you not--Dixie is wearing an HEB sack as we speak)

LMAO...That's too funny. Sorry about your washing machine. My tv is 70% dead.

My washing machine is also 51% dead. I have to walk down 3 times per cycle to slam the lid repeatedly until it restarts.

Thankfully, my toddler prefers to run around absolutely naked anyway, so we've yet to resort to wearing bags.

LMFAO! But why not try recycled paper bags?

So glad you started a blog!

I may have to start requesting plastic at the grocery store.
