Last night I discovered something silly about myself. I realized I LOVE to hear the sounds of the dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer running all at the same time. It makes me feel productive :) The only bummer about these sounds is having them going at the same time I am watching tv because it's sure hard to hear! Especially when I have to keep the volume down after all the children are in bed. Someday we'll have all their bedrooms on the second floor so I can watch tv downstairs at night and be able to hear it!
