Airing our clean laundry...

So remember when I posted pictures of our spare "everything" room here? Well, it turns out that is serves yet another purpose:

It is now a room for airing our clean, but wet laundry! Yay!

Yes, I just posted this. And yes, these are phone pics.

You wanna know why?

It's because last night the dryer at the laundromat ATE my quarters. Seriously, it ate them.

Apparently it feigned working when I first put my precious quarters in. I was a sucker and believed that it wanted to dry our laundry. So then I went home for 45 minutes...only to return to wet clothes and a flashing light telling me that it wanted more quarters. Of course I refused to comply to it's demands and went home with a basket of wet laundry.

I was very disappointed. At least someone didn't use bleach before me this time. That has happened before and my nice green towels came out with splotches of white.

And so my laundry saga continues. Living in an apartment complex always provides excitement (or you could call it frustration) in my life. Still, as I was carrying my basket of wet laundry in disappointment I remembered that I am blessed. I don't have to do laundry in a bucket of soapy water and air dry my clothes every time. It helped (a little) to realize that.

Oh well, this is just a peice of real life folks...and now you've seem our laundry. I know that is exciting. Ha!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Oh my gosh girl! when I first saw this I thought you had learned a new decorating technique. LOL! It might catch on. You never know.

But in all seriousness, I'm sorry that happened! Hope it doesn't again.

I love it! We've done the same thing. We have a community laundry room where we live, and the worst is in the middle of summer when people wash their cloth diapers. YUCK, smells so bad! But yes, the machine ate my quarters the other week too! :)

Bummer that you had to come home with wet laundry!

We've had to do that before, too, but it usually ends up draped in our dining room! Haha

l.o.l!!!! I'm sorry the machine ate your quarters, but hey, it provided a good laugh! ;) It's good to know, though, that your realized your situation could be worse, and that others have to do more. We live such an easy life, so it's nice to sometimes look at it that way. I try to do that when I don't feel "blessed" having to do something. It always changes my outlook.

Giving GOD the Glory!
