My sister the doofus

After being at home for a little less than 2 weeks, Carlynne returned to Edmonton on Saturday. Today was the day that Mom did the laundry from her stay, and here's what was hanging out to dry:

My parents, Shareen, and Craig used one towel each. ALL THE REST were used by Carlynne. That's 9 towels. I don't even think she had 9 showers in the time she was here!

That girl remains a mystery to me... freakish strength and an uninhibited desire to use as many towels as possible. I'm sure gonna miss having this weirdo her around!

Am I missing something on hygiene? Are we supposed to be using a clean towel for every shower? Maybe Carlynne has some medical insights. I heard once that pregnant women should use a clean one everyday, but I thought that was a silly old wives tale.

Oh trust me you: this has nothing to do with hygiene. It's just plumb silliness and forgetfulness!

remember how I used to get so mad (and probably still would if we were ever in the same place long enough) when she would use my towel and when I'd go to shower it'd be wet?

Did she use your towel too? I always remembered that mine was the closest hook to the shower, but nearly every time I went to shower after her, my towel would be wet. Remember when I made a sign above our hooks to point her hook out to her? It didn't help.

Hee hee, that girl... I wonder if she's reading this?

Hi Julie!

You don't know me but I am Julia Drager's (a friend of Carlynne's) best friend from a friend of a friend or something crazy like that. :)

Julia referred me to your blog around the time you got engaged (as I am quite the fan of fancy engagement stories -- yours was no exception!!) and had to tell you that you have a really fun blog!!

(They are so addictive, aren't they!? :) If you want, you can check out mine at

I always find it funny when I hear someone I least expect is reading my blog, but also cool 'cause it reminds me I'm not always writing to myself. So I just thought I'd let you know that your blog is extremely entertaining to someone you don't even know! (Hope that doesn't seem weird or creepy. :D)

Hope you're well, and keep having fun!
Take care! :)

Hey Julie! Glad to make contact! :) 100 days and counting, huh? Sweet! You must be so excited! You two seem like a great pair. :)
Definitely check out my blog, though it hasn't been updated in a couple of days (sigh) but what can you do. :)
Take care!!
:-) Allison
