this is the way we wash our clothes...

so, we've had a ton of laundry to get done and the forces of the universe have been against me every step of the way. from electricity issues to low water pressure to just not having enough time to do laundry and hang it up...

i was excited yesterday that amalio and my brother-in-law were home to help. i washed, they hung.

but, on wednesdays i teach at school and not in my house. when i left, well, the sky was beautiful and blue. even at 6 when i was walking home it seemed a little dark but i really didn't think it would rain. so i stopped to talk to the neighbors and wait for suah, my next student.

then, as we were walking up the stairs, it started. drip. drip. drip. i ran. i tried to unlock the door, but it wouldn't budge so we continued to the 4th floor where i dropped off samil and suah - suah who speaks no spanish and very, very little english and continued running to the roof.

too late.

oops. maybe today i'll have better luck.

Rain water is supposed to be good for your hair. Can't the same rule apply to clothes and sheets?
