Going to keep a track of how much laundry I really do, just for the next month or so. I am thinking it comes to 7 loads a week, but we'll see. Am also going to see who will win, the dryer or the clothesline. My electric company is rooting for the dryer, but my pocketbook is screaming "Clothesline!" Going to keep track in the right hand column. Goooooo clothesline!
