Since I have to deal with a couple of medical procedures tomorrow morning, I'm trying to get as much done today as I can, and I've tackled laundry! I have been delaying for some time the washing of summer sheets as well as towels. Today is the day I'm going to get caught up! I sure wish I had a dryer here in my house, but eventually I will get one. I'm lucky to have a washer at home. I really miss being able to line dry my clothes & towels as the dryer gets to be expensive. But nothing smells good these days when it's been line dried, and I noticed that since the planes started dropping their poison particles from the skies.
My brother and his wife (Steve and Nancy) are working on a genealogy project, and when I met them at Denny's earlier this week they handed me a box containing a voice recorder, plus a list of about 36 questions relating to my memories. I've been alive longer than any of my siblings, so I have a lot to tell and I hope I'm not overdoing it.
One period of my life I'd rather not talk about though is my teens, up to about 17 or 18 yrs of age. I had a rough time and have tried to forget all about it. I have written all my answers down on paper to make it easier to record the memories and not forget something I wanted to say. Now I'm ready to record, and I will omit most of the question about being 16.
Many of my siblings loved the house we finally settled in and stayed for years, in a suburb called Silverton. I detested it, so while they may have wonderful memories of school, church, friends, etc., I have tried to forget all about it.
Every time I have to walk over to the laundry room the sky seems to be more cloudy. I think we are in for about two days of rain, so I'm glad I'm getting this laundry job done and won't have to worry about it for a while. I usually only do it every two or three weeks unless I want to wear something that needs laundering.
It's time to take my last load over to dry, and fold the stuff that is ready to bring home. I'm going to be plumb worn out when I'm finished!
I may not write anything tomorrow, but maybe I will if the mood strikes me. Hope you all are close to being ready for the holidays. I don't think I'm there yet!
