So if you have 4 or more do you do them in the washer? I haven't been brave enough to try that yet. Our washer is in the garage and I'm so afraid I wouldn't catch it before it drained.

not at all it's actually much easier IMO

that's why I offer a lower cost to do larger batches of one color

Re: B2B - Back to Basics Wet n' Wild Wednesday

I haven't read throught the thread yet.

Yesterday was a busy, painful day. YUCK! I could barely walk around. I had my 39wk appt yesterday and I was still at 2cm. My Dr. wanted to schedule an induction and I asked him if we could go to 42wks and since he wasn't working that weekend (rolling eyes), he scheduled it for 41 wks and 4 days, which is 2/26. He said he didn't think I'd go that long. TWO HOURS LATER... I started having crampy contractions. I seriously thought I was in labor. IT was crazy. My DH was with me and the kids the rest of the afternoon, so it was nice to have the help. Anyway, the contractions lasted until about 11pm. Then, they just STOPPED!!!! grrrrr... Oh well. At least my body is doing what it's supposed to be, right?

WOTB: a sposie. I am seriously getting lazy. I don't want to dirty up the cloth in case I go in the hospital.

WOTA:

I need to mop. Maybe that will get me into real labor. hehehehe
I also need to run to the store to get a sitz bath.
