To my beloved Washing Machine,

Just a brief note of apology. I know that I asked a lot of you last week , but once again, you delivered. You are truly a girl's best friend. You are right, you did wash the same sheets, blankets and waterproof mattress pad 5 days in a row and I am sure it does get monotonous, but thank-you for doing it without seizing up on me or chewing up said bedding. Even though I am sure you felt like it.

You see, Spud thinks that being naked is better than being clothed, which would be fine if he had the same belief about being potty-trained vs. still in a diaper. But alas, he does not. So, until he gets over his late night striping tendencies, he is potty-trained or I figure out a way to duct-tape his clothes on without social services being called you may be asked to go above and beyond the call of duty again and again.

And as for the fingerpainting espisode after last Wednesday's nap, I'm truly sorry you had to go through that, no washing machine (or mommy) should ever have to deal with that much poop spread over that large of an area. From now on, only premium detergant for you, none of that no name stuff, you deserve only the best!

Thank-you again for being there for me through thick, thin and three messy men. I couldn't do it without you!

Love ya,

The Happy Geek

Hi Geekzilla

All right. Tell the truth. Who do you love more - your washing machine or your dustbuster? It's a toss up at my house although I think I love my labeller more than both. Do you think it's something in the genes?
