My excuse for not doing laundry...
Who wants to do laundry with two big stinky shedding dogs sprawled across the laundry room floor? This is where they spend much of their time these days (and part of the nights - it doesn't cool down quickly!)
I swept up enough dog hair off that floor the other day to knit a small sweater. Ugh.
If today's temps top 100, and in all likelihood they will, it will be the 65th day of triple digit temps in the Austin area. The record (set back in 1925 or so) is 69.
What's wrong with me that I hope we beat the record? But, you know, we've suffered this much... I figure we should at least get on the record books, right?
I'm not sure we have enough clothes to hold out on laundry that long, though. Sigh.
A quick update on my Daddy... he's still in the hospital, getting about every test I've ever heard of plus some. So far he's passed them all with flying colors. I told him I hope they stamp him "Approved" and send him home soon.
The problem is, there's definitely something wrong and they haven't figured out what it is yet. I'm still praying they find it and it's something minor and quick-fixable, because an extended hospital stay isn't easy on him or my mom.
In the meantime, I'm under orders from that same mom not to worry and not to head that way. "We're just fine, thank you." So I'm just continuing along on my regularly scheduled program, keeping tabs on them via the phone and my sister. (But ready to drop everything and jump in the car, if necessary.)
Thank you again for all your sweet words of reassurance and comfort, and for your prayers.
Hope you have a wonderful Friday!
