adventures at the laundromat
first off all I had to find on. Last week once I discovered the washer not functioning as it should I went on a quest for a place to do my laundry as the only local laundromat I knew of got bulldozed a few years ago to make way for a strip center that sits 1/2 empty. First I searched(in vain) for a cleaners that did laundry haha. Luckily one of them did know of a laundromat that had just opened and was close to my house. Now MIL has graciously offered to do our laundry for us and I did take her up on several loads this week but I didn't feel comfortable bring over all 9 millions pounds of dirty clothes that we seem to accumulate so I held some back for today when our washer was going to be fixed. Except not because it will be cheaper to buy an entire new washer rather than having the old one fixed..doesn't it figure?! So I carted 4 loads of laundry off this afternoon and got them all done in less than 2 hours which we be the only benefit to going to a laundromat. I was pleased it was fairly clean, well the machines were it did look like someone had gotten a hair cut and forgot to sweep up after themselves. Being late afternoon on a very sunny Friday I had the place to myself the entire time which gave me a chance to read in peace and quiet. Only got screwed out of a dollar with one faulty dryer and luckily had just enough quarters to get the job done. One load of shorts & capri pants were a little damp so I just popped them in the dryer when I got home. Technically I could have dried everything at home but who wants to lug 4 loads of wet clothes around?
