Checking Out As They Check In

Grandma and Grandpa Mad Scientist will be boarding their plane soon bound for Nueva Jersey.

The floors are all sucked clean, the bathroom has been wiped down and holy hell, the bedsheets have been ironed.


Seriously? Why the hell am I ironing bed sheets? Who does this? I just felt they needed it.

If it was my Mom and Dad coming to visit, I don't think I'd bother. Ha ha! Sorry Mom and Dad!

I'll be back sometime next week or next weekend with lots of pictures of fun with Grandma and Grandpa and our trip to Niagara Falls (we're sending Moochie over in a barrel! Hee hee!).

My mother used to iron EVERYTHING. And when I say that, I really do mean it. Underwear. Socks. Towels. Everything. As far as I know, she still does.
I iron nothing. Straight out of the drier, onto hangers, or folded neatly. Done.
Have fun at Niagara. I want to go there one day.

Happy Grandma and Grandpa week! I'll be having my own Grammie week down here, minus the ironed sheets ;-)

You are a better woman than me for ironing sheets. They make fun of my at work for ironing my scrubs.

Have a fun week!

Love, Aunt Susan

When I learned to iron, sheets is what I learned on. I think the last time sheets got ironed at my mom's house (or mine!) was when I rebelled and refused to iron them anymore!

Have fun with the in-laws!

Wow, you actually ironed your bedsheets?! I iron my work clothes and the kids' school uniforms in the morning before we wear them, but that's the extent of my ironing. I'll only iron their casual clothes if they look really badly wrinkled. My husband irons his own clothes, also right before he wears them too. I despise ironing, so I try to do as little as possible, and I try not to buy clothes for myself that look like they'll need a mammoth amount of ironing every time I wear them.

I never even considered ironing a bedsheet. And to be honest, I don't care if mine or the kids' beds get made, either. I figure they're just going to get slept in rumpled up again anyway, so why bother? Yes, I realize some people will probably view that as lazy, but I don't care.

Hope you have a good visit with the in-laws!

Have a good week! I don't iron bedsheets. I just hate ironing too much.

Make sure you pad the barrel.

Have a grand old time at Niagara Falls. Trivia: The town claims to have invented spicy chicken wings eaten with blue cheese dressing and celery sticks, but their recipe and fame were appropriated by the nearby big city.
