Funny First World Issues

I term this a hamster wheel of domestic bliss. My husband laughed, knowing I appreciate our comfortable household environment.

The cycle started when I wanted eggs on toast for breakfast. Our reliable (only) bread toasting option, an air fryer, needed cleaning. Within a minute I found myself needing more paper towels to best finish the job.

We store paper products downstairs by the laundry room. So, having begun washing and drying a few loads the evening before, I grabbed my clean clothes basket.

About forty-five minutes later I finally ate. What a blessing my schedule is only ruled by cat demands. And I wouldn’t have that any other way. Sweet old Jezebel sat tucked by my side as I typed.


Do you own a washer and dryer? If you’ve used a public laundry, has anyone ever stolen items?

  1. That is the best thing about this house-washer dryer. Before moving here, I did all my wash at public laundrymats. at the shack where I lived five years before here, when my car would break down, which was frequent, I had to hitchhike with my laundry, as it was a long way to the nearest public laundry. OMG I love having a washer dryer here. I got the last washer off craigslist. A Maytag. I don't know how old it was then, but its been washing clothes and cat bedding now for years here.

  2. You are amazing the way you've persevered through tough times. ~hugs~ And the older machines are built better, it seems.

  3. There's a washer and dryer that came with this house, but I occasionally hear mom longing for good old-fashioned appliances that just did their job without music, bells & whistles. We swear these newfangled things take more water and more electricity! Happy Thanksgiving wishes all 'round!

  4. We both have the same kind of life. We do things pretty much when we want to.

    We have a washer and dryer, but when they were doing the new floors in September we went to the laundry in town. Been years since we'd been there. We stayed until the laundry was done so no one took anything.

    Have a fabulous day and Thanksgiving, Darla. Big hug to you and scritches to the kitties. ♥

  5. I was sure you were going to report that you'd forgotten why you were there!
    We do not have a washer and dryer; The Hubby loads all of our dirty clothes in the car and goes to the laundromat every 2 weeks.
    Nothing has been stolen, but I've lost more than one sock, and have gained a few odd socks, wash clothes, and hand towels.

  6. That sounds familiar, start one thing, finish two others! We have our own washer & dryer, fortunately!

  7. Ah, the avalanche. You start with one thing that leads to something else which leads to something else. I am well familiar with that sequence of events.

  8. The older machines are/were indeed built MUCH better. I kept both washer and dryer a good twenty years before having to get another.

    1. I'm sorry they're not still running. ~hugs~ Bought in 1994, ours will soon be on their third (!) decade.

  9. We have a washer and dryer, but I have used the public ones for large comforters and no theft. Happy Thanksgiving! XO
