The Bath Mat Should Be Dry By June

So the dryers in our apartment apparently both decided to break at the same time, which means I am going unexpectedly green and airing things dry. This is awesome because you know nothing dries your jeans like throwing them over the papasan in your unheated apartment with no direct sunlight.

So everything is basically dry now (sort of) except my socks (why does it take forever for socks to dry?) and my bath mat. In fact, I will go out on a limb and say that my bath mat is no drier than it was two days ago. Okay, that's probably an exaggeration. But only a slight one.

Heavy things (sweaters, towels, bath mats) tend to smell moldy if I air dry it. But stuff does dry faster in the winter when its really dry.

Uhhh that sucks, I hate when I air dry my jeans and only the crotch and pockets stay damp. What is with that...

Oh yeah, we've got the same bath mat problem here. It's like it never truly dries! And the socks too - man, those suckers are cold when damp.

Do you have a visitor now? If so, please blog about it!

To answer your question, Sciencemama, they called me last night to ask if someone could stay with me. So I canceled my plans to go out (to be fair I was tired anyway) and took a shower, and got into my pajamas. At 9:00pm, I got a call from the staffer who was supposed to stay with me. She apologized for the miscommunication and said she had made plans previously to stay with a friend.

It wasn't a huge deal. I was tired, and it was raining and considering I fell asleep at 10:00pm, it was probably better that I didn't go out, but it was a little annoying since I COULD have gone out after all. Oh well. So no, no one staying with me yet.
