Does anyone else have a spouse incapable of telling "good" towels from garage towels and rags? I celebrated my 17th anniversary a few days ago and still can't get my husband to understand the difference between the two. I get a little peeved when he takes one of a matched set to dry the car, but nothing compares to the surprise of finding yourself drying off with something that was sopping up spilled paint last week. I understand that there is a certain area of gray, and the cycle of rotation can lead to ambiguity, but it just isn't something I have managed to communicate in all of our long years together.
Faced a stack of t-shirt backs that I was incapable of tossing out and a stack of old towels I was trying to keep out of the linen cupboard, I took out my rotary cutter and started cutting them into nicely sized squares.
While working on those, I was inspired to make some new covers for the floor duster and steam mop. They each came with a single cover, but it never seems to be clean when you need it, so now I've got a whole stack of extras.
Because it was just that sort of day, I took the kids out for haircuts. Although I got a "before" picture, they all scattered again before I could do the "afters". Then we went for lunch and made a trek to Wal-mart for birthday presents needed for upcoming parties. I tried to sneak a quick stop into Hobby Lobby in there, but the girls all came up with a list of things they "needed" so I put that off until tomorrow. I have a coupon so that I can get some more interfacing and make some progress on the t-shirt quilt.
