Sunday Short: It’s the Laundry

Because this is how I would look if I did not have to do laundry

I sit surrounded by baskets of laundry.

Monotonously I fold, knowing that tomorrow will bring more of the same.

Hours wasted on insanity.

I remember when I could have it done for a couple of bucks. A day later I’d pick up the bag of clothes, neatly pressed, folded and smelling of lavender.

I know how bourgeoisie that sounds.

But, it’s just me appreciating my time spent on other things that bring me joy.

Is that so bad?

  2. Ah, yes, I, too long in unguarded moments for cheap laundry places that wash and fold your clothes.

    I remember having our laundry done in Thailand for all of a couple dollars. It seemed like such a luxury (something that we would normally NEVER splurge on, washing clothes in our hotel sink instead and hanging them all over the room.)

    Thailand was a land of pleasant splurges for us, getting to do things that would normally be waaay out of our budget.

    • That’s why I love it so much. Thailand gives you so many chances to just enjoy life. There’s no getting bogged down in all the stuff we have to manage in our expensive countries.
