Laundry Mat-Our Home!


Well, I just thought that we would give you all a taste of our work at the laundry mat! I know that you can't see much, and I did take more pictures, but I have had problems uploading images these days. It is probably just something that I am doing wrong. Anyway, this is a pic of where we clean from 10 to about 10:45 each evening. We clean all of the machines, sweep and mop the floor, clean out the lint traps,(I think that the most change that we have found in one night is $1.45! We could get filthy rich just from the lint traps! Okay, maybe just filthy, they are pretty disgusting!) clean the bathroom, the windows, and empty garbages! Whew, don't you all want to come and help!
Two exciting things happened in Utah this weekend. First, my MOM came down to babysit Ian and Megan for a week!!! Second, ...you guessed it....SNOW!!! I was so excited to wake up to snow on Sunday morning, despite the fact that I had to shovel the stairs and sidewalks at our apartment complex. My mom said that her and Ian were playing in the snow this morning, and his little mittens were so big that he couldn't even make a snow ball! So, being the wonderful Grandma that she is, she would make snowballs for him to throw. Sadly, when he pulled his arm back behind his head to throw it, it would slip backwords off of his hand! He just couldn't figure it out! O, the joy of being a child...

Looks like fun! That is a nice way to earn a little cash! Keep checking those dirt traps, you never know what you might find! We have a little jar we throw our extra change in, and about once a year we go out to dinner courtesy of the change jar! Where are Kevin and Mandy? Your mom is so cute, what a great grandma!

Wow you guys will keep busy with the laundry mat and the apartments! I must say you are braver than I, cleaning a public bathroom is a fear of mine. Yep I've done all sort of nasty things as a nurse, but I just don't know if I could tackle a public bathroom. I'm so jealous that you got to wake up to snow! Take care Lacee

Hey Chels I am so glad that someone besides my brothers, sister, or parents looks at my blog. Tell Cody that I sat in front of his brother today at Stake Conference. I introduced myself as Chelsea's cousin. I'm glad that you guys are keeping busy. BTW I find more change than that in my washer! Emilee

Hey! I bought Nels's wedding ring with all of the spare change I saved for a few years in high school. It is amazing how fast it builds up. Now my little Annie and Macee like to steal everything out of the change jar and claim it as their own. You look like a professional in the laundry mat! Good job!! Have fun with your mom this week. I totally love her!!

Sounds like we both have studying husbands! Once we got a good routine down, it really isn't that bad, we see him a lot more than I thought we might:) Sounds like you guys are staying busy! Good luck with dental school, we're excited for you guys! Come to OHIO, it's the place to be!!!
