Laundry

After our weekend as chaperones for the YSA conference, we spent our Tuesday doing laundry and whatnot. People in New Zealand don't really use driers here because they cost so much to run. Mostly they just hang their clothes out on lines or hang them in their homes. It's not so bad as you might expect, but then again, it is not quite winter yet.

Yesterday we washed sheets and clothes and things, and then Eric hung them out. There are two lines at our complex- a set outside in the sun, and a set sort of inside, but really outside, sheltered from the rain. Eric chose to hang our clothes on the inside one because "The outside ones were occupied." When I looked out the window I saw LOTS of room, but Eric didn't know it is perfectly acceptable to share the lines with our neighbors. Anyway, by the time night came, our laundry wasn't completely dry.

The fitted sheet was dry enough to put on the bed, but the next sheet we hung in our living room, making a fort. And, most importantly, Eric's pajamas were not dry.

So I talked him into wearing my larger set. I pretty much laughed uncontrollably for the first five minutes that he wore them. Enjoy!

Eric! Looking good! I've seen you wear more offensive garb (and I have some pretty incriminating photos to prove it), but this is great.

Wait a sec, you were chaperones at the YSA conference? Was it in Dunedin? My sister went to that one! Tell me if you ran into a crazy girl named Stefanie. :)

That's just wrong!

I totally met your sister, Noelle! That is the funniest thing because one night Eric and I sat around with most of the BYU students talking about all the people we know- mutual friends, which of Eric's family members they all knew and that sort of thing. Now Stefanie is my Facebook friend. :) This is very funny to me! Mormondom is such a small world.
