Voting and A Load of...Laundry.

See Alice there? Yep, that's pretty much what my laundry room looked like, minus the mouse.

I've been wrestling with my crazy washer this morning. I've got a laundry pile the size of Mount Doom, looming in my closet. Adding to that, my washer gets off kilter and about every 5 minutes; it sounds like there's a giant playing dodgeball in my laundry room. I rush in there and try to quiet him with cookies...or petit fours.

Okay, in the middle of writing this post, I go in to once again, hush the "giant" and there before me, is what looks like what a giant's pee would look like if he peed in my laundry room. The laundry room is flooded!!! There is 1/2" of water all over. Now doubly irritated that I have to clean-up this mess AND petit fours will not help me now (told you they were hellish), I grab some towels and get to work. I open the garage door, that is connected to the laundry room and there is a river of water running out and under unused strollers and old high-chairs. My collection of hats continues to grow. Mommy, blogger, maid, counselor, nurse, cook and now janitor.

The only good thing about this event is that I'm going to get a new washer. And maybe some votes?

Today is the start of voting for Project Food Blog!!  Aren't you pumped? I'm excited. It's down to 100 contestants now.

  1. You have my vote Lauren! And those tea cups are too precious. I want them all!

  2. To Monet, Jenn, Sommer, Magic and Amy: Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm feeling so very loved right now. It' makes my day.

  3. You have my vote as always sweetie. Hey, now will you do my laundry when you get the new machine?

  4. Lauren - you're exactly what I needed on the day we had to put the stray dog down (Winston ate my bedspread, two of Connie's shirts, a pair of shorts a pair of jeans and he pooped ALL over - try stepping in poop in the bathroom at 2:00 am...) Plus, back-to-back appts today, no lunch, stress out the wazoo. And, I'm so gosh-darned glad my washer isn't leaking water all over the house! Hugs back to you!! Kate

  5. Hi Lauren, of course my vote is already in but I wanted to stop by and say thanks for your sweet comments about my photos! Photography is an area where I struggle . . . mightily! I just started taking pictures in August - out of necessity rather than desire (long story - for another time). My photos are hit and miss. For each post, I take about a million pictures of the item(s). Then begins a stage of the blogging process I like to call "Dueling Banjos", wherein Foodgawker, Tastespotting and I play a little game of Submit/Reject . . . (they win a LOT!). Anyway, thanks again for your kind words! Sorry about the flooding - that is horrid, but amazing that you were able to pull Petits Fours out of the bag under those circumstances. Congrats on the new washer though! Can't wait to see what you are up to for the next PFB Challenge . . . Cheers, Michelle

  6. Already voted for you and your little hell cakes! Thanks for all of your lovely comments and support on my blog, too. Much appreciated. One of your comments gave me a thought which I will message you about soon. Sounds like you have your hands full at the moment!
