Carl had done two loads of laundry by the time i got there yesterday. One load was half dry because he'd only set the dryer for 30 minutes. The other was still in the washer.
|Clean clothes on the back of this chair.|
|Clean clothes on the back of this chair, too.|
|Clean clothes gathered from the bathroom.|
|Clean clothes (hanging) on the left side of the closet.|
|Clean clothes on the right side of the closet.|
He has clean clothes everywhere and that's part of what confuses him, he can't find the ones he just had a minute ago, so he gets out more.
Because i'm doing catsitting for Ms. GA this week, i got to his house early, just as he was getting up. After confirming that he did actually have work, i suggested a shower right away.
"But I need biscuits!" he said.
I told him i'd get the biscuits and asked where they were.
"In the freezer," he said, heading to the bathroom.
Upon opening the freezer, i was deluged with the papers that were on top of the freezer and attacked by an errant quart of ice cream.
Order was restored and i took the biscuits into the main kitchen to bake two of them in the toaster oven. Mr. L was awake and did it for me, so i could get back into Carl's room.
Just in time, i saw him heading into the bathroom, then come back out looking for something. I took that opportunity to peek in and grab all the extra clothes out of there. He had long pants, two pair of shorts, and four shirts. I left the long pants and one shirt, plus socks.
He was trying to bring more clothes into the bathroom when i stopped him and said he already had clothes in there.
"Underwear?" he asked, so i handed him another pair, it was easier than arguing.
Once he was done, i handed him an apron to keep it all clean while eating, and he started mumbling about lunch.
Time to find the new lunch box, right? Hmmm, in the car? No, nor was the stain remover (i had to use the back-up bottle that i hide in the broom closet). On the shelf where it belongs? Oh, heavens no.
How about in the refrigerator with a dead piece of banana in it. I didn't take a picture. You're welcome.
About the time i found and was cleaning the lunchbox, i noticed he'd taken off the apron. This time i talked him into keeping it on, and i packed him a nice lunch, with cookies.
He lives to eat, that one.
How about a few lunch funnies.
Have a blessed and beautiful Tuesday, everyone!
