Margret and me the Christmas we got matching shirts and wore them at the same time.
Wishing you all
|If Heaven has a greeter,|
someone waving, it's this way,
You've lived the best life you knew how,
so here's where you will stay.
Margret would be chosen, for her heart and for her smile,
which says love's waiting here for you, you've just been gone awhile. Come be with your family, tell us what you're learned.
Relax because you're home now. This rest you have earned.
You need to separate things-you-want-to-stay-white from things-that-might-bleed-unwanted-color if you don't want your white undies and tshirts to be pink or green or grey.Others asked for help. "I don't know HOW to do laundry," wailed one, "what do I DO?" Usually one of the other girls would come to the rescue.
You need to wash delicate lacy things separate from jeans, and separate from other clothes with big toothed zippers or hooks.
You need to read the label to see if an item can be machine washed at all. -
One girl machine washed a Dry Clean Only garment. The result looked nothing like the original. She cried.
Another had a lovely wool sweater that her gran had knitted for her. She machine washed it in hot water because she'd spilled coffee on it, and then tossed it in the dryer. She ended up with a felted sweater that might fit a large doll or a small four year old, whose texture reminded me of steel wool. (Joke: if I give you the steel wool, will you knit me a Porsche?)
