Cabinets with machines in laundry room

We made the switch to a ventless dryer when we redid our laundry room last year. I now get what the Europeans see in them. It works great and saved the hassle / expense of drilling a vent out of our old brick siding.

My wife did an amazing job with the wallpaper here too!

I’ve explained over Zoom to my students the difference between CSS Grid and Flexbox so many times over the last year that at this point my wife has my spiel memorized.

Our 11-month old can officially climb up the stairs now. Nothing is safe and I definitely feel like I’ve entered the stage of living with two toddlers now.

A Call To Spy 🍿

I think what amazes me about the World War II era is just how many films and documentaries seemed to still be released about it every year.
