You know, this is a minor, but very common problem. People should design a
linen closet into the common house. We had to buy a large cabinet to hold
our tablecloths and napkins.

And Kay, one of our individual jobs is making sure the laundry is folded and
put away. It may seem like a small job, but it's plenty when you have
regular common meals!
