I have decided that rayon is the weirdest material ever. I have a sweater that I bought without looking at the tag that is 100% rayon. Has to be hand washed. I really dislike handwashing things. And apparently rayon is becoming more and more popular. As in, I went shopping this weekend and the majority of shirts I tried on were rayon. Here's the weird thing though. One shirt I tried on that I was trying to decide if I really liked turned out to be 100% rayon and hand wash only. It went in the "don't want it" pile. The other shirt I liked was 100% rayon and machine wash and machine dry. How can that be? I was a little skeptical, but decided to take the tag at face value. So, I wore the shirt today and washed it. As I was transferring it to the dryer, I was convinced that the shirt had been ruined. Rayon is a very thin material, but as I transferred it, the shirt felt thicker than a regular t-shirt and was almost unrecognizable. But after it came out of the dryer...back to thin material and not ruined at all. Strange.
Let's see. I am in my thirties and single. I love spending time with my family, friends, reading, playing games, and spectating (but not playing) sports. I was born in Illinois, raised in Georgia, and went to graduate school in Texas. I now live back in Illinois. I work at an agency doing in-home therapy with kids and their families. I attend Bethany Baptist Church and work with AWANA, volunteer in the nursery, and am active in the Career class. My favorite drink is Dr. Pepper (I even like Dr. Pepper Jelly Bellies). Winter is my favorite time of year and in the winter I love to curl up with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate.
