This morning as we headed downtown to celebrate a birthday with some family time and Indian food, I noticed a lady waiting for the bus with a laundry basket full of clothes and detergent.
Yeah. I am so very thankful to have a washer and dryer of my own, in my home. I’ve done the coin-operated apartment complex/dorm laundry thing and that is such a pain. I can’t conceive trekking to a laundromat. On public transit no less!
I know a lady who cloth diapers and laundromats. Now that is dedication.
When Tony and I first started dating and he moved into a rental house in the Seattle area, I’m not sure if I hung out there more for him or more for his laundering utilities 😉
Mindlessly doing laundry while I cook, clean, do homework, hang out, or even sleep is such a luxury! Easily being able to throw in an extra load of wet towels, puked bed sheets, or muddy clothing is something I regularly take for granted. Not to mention running M’s diapers through a few different cycles. I would not be cloth diapering without my washer and dryer (bought specifically for it’s sanitize cycle for CDing purposes).
I’d also like to add the myriad of home appliances I utilize to this list: dishwasher(!), refrigerator, freezer, stove, oven and microwave. I am thankful to live in the era I do, with the material privilege I possess. Could not do it without my mechanical help.
