Sometimes life jumps up and attacks you. You know, like when seven people all try to stagger and drag out wicked cases of the stomach flu.
And then you know what else attacks you? Large, looming loads of really dirty laundry.
This was my life this past week and while looking back I might be able to find a glimmer of humor in it all, I probably won't. But I did learn an important lesson - Laundermats are my friend! Yes, it was a little scuzzy and the clientele was slightly scary, but where else can you get five loads of laundry done AND knit half a hat while drinking a Caramel Brulee Latte all in the comfort of a hard plastic chair and a sticky floor??
Admittedly, the greatness of this little excursion was the act of being productive coupled with an hour of childless quiet (thanks to my hubby!).
But the lesson was still learned - laundermats are great!
