Laundry in the "Old Days"

As utterly unexciting as laundry is anyway...I would have to say that Mine and Kevin's laundry situation since we got to Chicago has been WAY less than ideal!

The day Brian and Natalie left, the dryer broke down. They informed the landlord that it was no longer blowing heat and he said he would have it fixed before we arrived (in a month...plenty of time). When Jennie and I got here it was still broken. We called the landlord on day one and he said he would come the next day to fix it. He didn't...so...Jennie and I banged it around a bit until it worked enough to get Jennie some clean clothes to go home with.

After that it was kind of in and out of service until eventually the landlord showed up, "fixed" it and gave me a ten minute lecture about how if I would just clean the vents it would work fine! (Jennie and I definitely already did that when we were banging it around!)

Anyway...a couple of weeks ago it finally gave up going in and out of service and stopped working all together...AGAIN! We called the landlord to get it fixed but finally couldn't wait any longer. Between Kevin having to wear two outfits a day because of work and Brooklyn and I always being covered in baby barf, we HAD to wash our laundry! Thus, we HAD to dry it! And since it decided to rain today, this is our current laundry situation:







Sorry if you stumbled upon any underwear shots! I guess that's just the nature of laundry! :)

I heard that you can tie a rope up and hang clothes on it to dry. It's called a clothes line...works pretty well. But your idea is pretty good too.

Ha Ha Rae! Guess I should have explained that we don't have anything long enough or strong enough for a clothes line and can't go to the store or the laundry mat because our car is in the shop! Laying it out was the last thing we could think of. :)

hee, hee. I'm sorry. How did you get around the apartment?

Naomi Hanks said...

Me and Brooklyn pretty much hung out in her room all day! It was great fun!

I'm willing to testify in court that we cleaned out the vents! Regardless, I enjoyed looking at the clothing explosion :) What's up with the car?

Dang! You three have a lot of clothes. Don't worry, none of it was offensive underwear. ;)

Even though it was just laundry all over your house I couldn't help but laugh harder and harder as I kept scrolling down, only cuz it's just the fate of an Uda to have wonderful adventures like this. I love it
