A Lesson in Drying Clothes

I’ve been doing laundry nonstop the past two weeks. My daughter brought home a nice case of head bugs (I’ll write about what I’ve learned from that another time – I’m just not ready yet – still recovering), so I’ve been keeping the washer and dryer going during most of the daylight hours.

Last night I was so proud that I managed to switch another load and would be ready to keep the process going the next morning. I went in the basement this morning to get the dried clothes out of the dryer. They were not dry. I did not turn it on. I was so tired I did not turn on the dryer.

Lesson learned: You have to turn on the dryer for the clothes to dry. Duh.
