Quivering Eyeballs...

I did a few loads of laundry last night while watching 24 and then CSI: Miami.

I was so stinkin proud of myself for completely catching up on the laundry. Not only was it washed...but it was FOLDED within an hour of exiting the dryer.

That is rare in these parts.

I also actually carried the laundry basket complete with folded and organized clean laundry UPSTAIRS.

I know. Lance about fainted.

And this morning? I PUT IT ALL AWAY.

Now I just about fainted.

But guess what?

Walked into the laundry room about forty minutes ago and saw a laundry basket full of dirty clothes.


My family produces dirty laundry so fast it makes my head spin and my eyeballs quiver.

I know. Quivering eyeballs are an unfortunate side-effect of dirty laundry overload.

Ya know, now that I think about it the quiver eyeballs may also be due to the sugar overload from the toffee bars I noshed on while watching the last hour of 24.

The rate of chewing rose simultaneously with the degree of tension.

And 24 had A LOT of tension.

And can I just say? I didn't remember who Renee Walker was. I seriously don't remember her from last season. She looks vaguely familiar but the story line is a no go in my brain's "remember this" section.

Probably because I was a just a tad bit sleep deprived during the last season.

And I have finally discovered the reason why I like CSI: Miami over Las Vegas or New York.


CSI: Miami has LOTS of color. Gorgeous blue water, clear sunny skies and lots and lots of COLOR. I live in the pacific northwest, we don't get a TON of color and clear blue sunny skies.

One could argue watching multiple episodes of CSI:Miami may in fact repel the late winter/early spring "gloomies" that pacific northwest residents are commonly afflicted with.

So, I'm off to do MORE laundry, nosh on toffee bars and have some "gloomies" therapy...



  1. I wish I had your engergy to catch up on laundry...I have a long ways to go to catch up on the last week of being sick!
    Totally hate CSI: Miami, sorry! I can't handle the lame acting. I will take Las Vegas any day over that. You want color? Put in Monster-in-law! =)

  2. I love your blog! thanks for making my day with your posting about crafts, home decor, costco, walmart and your sisters adoption. Your blog lets me know I am not alone in all the craziness! I love how real you keep it!

  3. Sadly, I do remember Renee Walker, however, she triggers the "annoying" point of my brain. I'm not a fan. Not sure why. But she bothers me. As for CSI, I'm still a Vegas girl. I guess I like the dark, eery, graveyard side of the investigating. Weird.

  4. I get what you mean about the vivid colors on CSI: Miami. But seriously - David Caruso? I can handle him for about a millisecond.
    By the way - I'm from your neck of the woods - kind of - Demingham (near the Log Show). Have transplanted down the Seattle area, but wanted to give a big Whatcom County shout out! Woot!

  5. I think the Miami factor is one of the reasons we like Dexter so much. (that and it's an awesome show) The music is great too:) I can't really get into CSI. My days of EVER hoping to be "caught up" on laundry are slowly drawing to a close:)

  6. Girl, you're preaching to the choir about the laundry!

  7. See, that's why I don't keep up on the laundry. As soon as I get to the bottom of the hamper, get all the clothes washed, dried, and put away, I mosey on through the laundry room, and whatdoyaknow, there's a big ol' pile again! So frustrating.

    And yes, I can attest to the long, dreary, pacific nw winter {and spring, and parts of fall. Yeah.} Are you in Washington?

  8. You make me laugh! I read your posts and say, "ME TOO! ME TOO!"

    I've decided that trying to catch up with laundry is like trying to catch up with making meals. "Catch up" is just the wrong word. I make food for my family everyday (ugh) and I do laundry for my family (just about) everday. Let's add the dishwasher in there too.


C'mon, let's chat a bit...
