We had a nice, quiet day today.
I called my Mom/Sister, and Sis answered the phone. We chatted for a bit and then she told me Mom was being just a little, um, obsessive? Last week, my sister laid some gravel down for a path to keep it from getting muddy. She said she woke up and saw Mom outside doing some yardwork so she went out to "good morning" greet her. Mom was looking at the rocks and Sis asked "What?" ... and Mom said the rocks were dirty and she should shovel them back into the wheelbarrow and take them to the front of the house to wash with the hose.
Sis said it was just too much for her having just woken up so she went inside to get a cup of coffee and that is when I rang. I told her to tell Mom either the rain can wash the rocks or they could drag a hose around the house to rinse the rocks where they were. There was NO NEED to pick up and move rocks to wash
them! Is Mom losing it? I hope she was just being 'funny' and picking on my Sis.
Also, today I did some outside chores with the horse and then mowed the side and back yard. When I came in, Hubby was changing out the clothes from the dryer to the couch and then washer to the dryer and putting a new load in the washer. I thought that was so nice of him!
I walked up the hall to see how he had loaded the washer. (I wanted to check the water level) He had everything set correctly, but he had put the liquid soap in the fabric softener dispenser. I said: "Oh, no, Honey, this isn't right." He asked what, and I explained that having the soap in that particular container would require the load to be run again, because the soap would be released in the final rinse.
I didn't ask, because he wasn't wearing his glasses, but IF he had stopped to read the instructions on the bottom of the lid (visible when open/loading/unloading) AND read the lettering around the fabric softener dispenser...he'd have known. Instead, I just thanked him and got a plastic cup to keep pouring water into the FS dispenser until it ran clear with no suds.
Isn't family great? It makes me wonder what stupid stuff *I* do?!
