Be sure to visit with Patrice this week. She shares a link to a post about how to make your own laundry detergent and also tells about the antics of Wendell the horse. Those are always entertaining. :)
1. How many load of laundry do you do each week (about)?
Maybe about six loads. I am not sure. I remember a time when it was about six loads a day! I don't miss those days one bit, though I do miss the washer and dryer set that we had at the time. We had the Maytag Neptune machines back then and they were great! They got the clothes clean, didn't beat them up, and dried them efficiently. Unfortunately, our newer set hasn't been so kind to the clothes or the electric bill. AND the dryer has died on us, so now we're having to use drying racks, which is okay, except that the clothes dry all stiff and crunchy. Any suggestions for how to make them be softer after air drying?
2. Where do your household pets sleep? If you have no pets, please skip to the next question.
All of our pets are outside animals. Our new puppies have a large kennel in the backyard and a small one in the carport for times that it is too cool for them to be totally outside. The cats usually sleep in the carport, too, although our old man kitty loves to sleep on the roof of our car, right where I can't reach him when I go to take the kids to school or pick them up.
Here is a picture of one of our new puppies. I don't have a picture of her sister yet. Meet Batly. :)

3. What is your favorite thing to listen to while you drive?
When David was in the hospital, I listened to a lot of country music and heard some really nice new songs, like "I Want to Make You Feel Wanted" by Hunter Hayes. Usually, though, I don't have the radio on. I would rather my husband talk to me when we're riding together. When the kids are in the car, there's not really any need in having it on. They are far more interesting than whatever the radio has going. :)
4. Do you have to do a big clean-up when you have company, or are you always ready for guests?
This house usually looks like the aftermath of Hurricane Hugo no matter what we do.
5. What's your favorite breakfast food?
