This may not seem like much to the general public…..but I’m going to the grocery! Yea! Since I’m practically out of detergent, fruit and veggies, it is needed. I have to add that having a washer and dryer inside my own apartment is a true convenience. I’ve been the Sudsy Duds route when you have to share those items with the rest of the town, who may or may not have the same aesthetics I do. And the money…..having the right amount of coins….always made a trip to the bank prewash-day a necessity. Waiting for the machines to finish in the hot steamy atmosphere always a treat, not bad in the winter.
There was a grocery store a few hundred feet away, so it was convenient to shop during the thirty or twenty minutes you had between changing machines. I was still walking then so it was good. The most fun was being preoccupied during these “outings” if I was babysitting. Fascination with the machines, how they worked, and especially loading coins in the slots, was a treat for kids. You also arrived home with your clothes etc, folded neatly, ready to put away. No lazy leaving them in the dryer like I might, just might, admit to happening now.
I guess all in all, the whole experience could be put in the positive column. It’s good to think of the little things in life to give you a positive boost.
