Thanks for the laughs! My husband must’ve learned to do dishes from the same person who taught your husband!

Love the dishes/laundry/freedom set. Well. Really, I hate the dishes and laundry and miss my freedom.

I wish it had been 61 today. Ug. I think we had 80s with 90% humidity. As in please, let me just curl up and die weather.

I’ve also been told tea is the antidote to prolonged pregnancy. Not that we’re past any set deadlines. (Though no one else seems to know that.)
