Self-Portrait | August 2013

Earlier in the month Kevin and I spent a long weekend at a cabin we rented in Prescott to celebrate our anniversary. We had a blast and really enjoyed our trip.  But, I am one of those people who needs to leave the house spic and span because I can't stand returning to a big mess.  So I spent the days leading up to the trip doing a ton of laundry to make sure everything was caught up before we left, and the days immediately following the trip trying to get through all the laundry from when we were gone.

To add to the insanity, we adopted our newest fur babies right before we left and picked them up from the rescue the day we returned.  A few days later, we sadly discovered that they both have ringworm.  If you're not familiar with it, ringworm is a skin fungus that cats, dogs, and humans can all get and it is super contagious. The only cleaning product known to kill it is bleach.  So, I am washing and bleaching all of the kittens' bedding every day, along with ours and the dogs', trying to get Daisy and Gatsby healed up and trying to prevent the rest of us from getting it.

All of that added up to make me feel like I'm pretty much living in the laundry room these days! So, it seemed rather fitting to capture a photo of me in the laundry room for this month's self-portrait...

I realized after I had taken the photo, that I look like I am reading the washer instructions.  I really do know how to do laundry!  I was really just trying my best to get a photo where I was actually visible in that tiny room and this was the best I came up with.
