Kickin' it old school.
It is a billion degrees here today. Don't hate me if it is cold where you are. I am sorry! I just am not genetically inclined to live in an inferno in April. I am always one second away from heat stroke and have fainted or nearly fainted from overheating more times than I can count. I ended up being a swimmer all through my childhood and college since that is one sport that you keep marginally cool while participating. Any whoo... a benefit of the oven that is my backyard, I dried my diapers outside today. I have read over and over that sunshine is the the best bleach in the world. I cannot tell you how true that turned out to be. Some creepy stains are suddenly gone, ones Oxy-clean couldn't even touch. They smell glorious as well. That is if you are comfortable with saying diapers and nice smells in the same sentence. So, I am putting a clothesline in my back yard. I am getting an apron with big pockets, filling it with clothespins and hanging my sheets, towels and diapers from now on. My homeowners association is going to have a heart attack, but they can deal. Besides, it will be a perfect place to take pictures. The one I am using now is tied to the girls little cabana and it is always too shady and I hit my head on it all of the time.
