So we are packing up for a road trip. This process follows an invariable path:
Step #1 - Congratulate myself that I am -- against all odds and despite a busy swim schedule -- caught up with laundry.
Step # 2 - Tote a suitcase to Ainsley's dresser and there unearth the mother-lode of dirty clothes.
Step #3 - Repeat Step # 2 for John, Kolbe, and Tim.
Step #4 - Think back to that YouTube video (remember A Mom's Rant) and recall that classic line: Were you raised in a barn? Would you like some hay?
Step # 5 - Embark on a marathon session of laundry, giving thanks all the while for the conveniences of modern life.
Step # 6 - Check Dave's dresser and thank our good and gracious Lord I married a man so tidy he could step into the Marine Corps and never miss a beat.
