Blowing in the Wind

I had one thing to remember yesterday afternoon.  One thing.  I needed to toss the load of laundry from the washer into the dryer before Reese needed her neon green tee shirt for her final night of dance camp.

Instead, I remembered the laundry seven minutes before we were scheduled to leave the house, right when I already was warily glancing at the clock and urging the kids to focus-and-eat-faster-so-we-won't-be-late.  I left my place at the table, dashed upstairs, tossed the shirt into the dryer, cranked the settings to high, and hoped that a few minutes would be enough.

They weren't.  The shirt was still significantly damp when I directed the girls to the minivan.

That is, the shirt was damp until a stroke of genius bought me ten extra minutes of all-natural air circulation during the drive.

I'm still patting myself on the back.  That shirt was perfectly dry when we arrived.  Well played, Robin.

  1. You are a genius - serioulsy, I am impressed!

  2. And SERIOUSLY ;) I can't spell. Sorry.

  3. I am always so proud when I have supermommy moments like this.
    To the world, we look like idiots with our clothes hanging out of car doors, holding a toddler, a purse, coffee, and pushing a stroller. The occasional don of wet hair in public may seem lazy, but little do they know what we've accomplished before 8 a.m.

  4. No bug carcasses on the shirt? I too am very impressed! You be DA mom. Happy 4th!

  5. I have the ideas but do not act on them. Bravo for being courageous!!!
