My husband and I don't argue much. However something we often argue about it laundry. I ask him not to touch my laundry, the girls laundry or the towels. Does he listen? No. I like to keep the girls laundry and towels seperate. We don't use any scented detergent or dryer sheets on ours. Taylor washed them all together, used dryer sheets that give Madeline congestion causing croup, leaves things in the dryer and then puts clean clothes in the dirty hamper and just piles dirty clothes on top. I don't understand why you would start laundry if you don't plan to finish it? Why not just do what your wife asks and leave the dirty clothes alone? He has a compulsion to overfill the washing machine and then its like he forgets about it. On purpose. Ugh it frustrates me SO badly.

Onto other bad news. We have been patiently waiting to find out where we will be moving in June. On our list we have small cutters, meaning they go out for a week or so at a time. We had all Eastern United States covered, Upstate NY, New Jersey, Georgia, Maine, Iowa, Kentucky, Virginia. Two days ago we found out we got NOTHING on our list. Instead they were lazy and sent us a list of 41 available places. We really need to be on a cutter so Taylor can get sea time to make it to the next rate. However of the 41 only 9 were cutters. And we are talking Alaska, Guam, Oregon and Washington. Nothing even remotely acceptable to me. We are praying to the dear Lord baby Jesus that we will get a cutter in Portsmouth, Virginia. The odds of that don't seem particularly good. Worst case is that we end up with a station again and get no sea time. If that happens I have no doubt I will be floating on the tiny island of Guam or getting chased by moose in Alaska! That is simply the luck I have!!
