we decided to skip church this a.m. to give us an extra window of time to accomplish everything we need to do before we depart for nywc tomorrow (and possibly 3 weeks away from home). lots of laundry happening here. i had just turned the wet clothes into the dryer and started another load.
my father and liam were doing some work at the washing machine as i headed upstairs. i sat down at the computer and realized i couldn't hear the dryer, meaning that i forgot to turn it on. i walked back downstairs and found liam and my dad in conversation with their backs to me at the washing machine. i touched liam's butt to ask him to move out of the way and he turned around with a shocked look on his face, and then relief.
'oh good, i didn't know you were down here.' meaning he was concerned at the possibility of a goose from my dad. we all had a quite a good laugh.
