hello readers, things have been improving around here. The laundry chore around this home will be less of a burden to me. I have sucessfully trained Rachel to empty the dryer. No more bending for me....oh the achy back muscles i get and sore knees. Did i mention the back aches? Hey, after so much laundry on the farm and with 4 kids it can be back breaking. Don't you think Rachel is at the perfect height anyway?
