My mom always and still does laundry on Monday's
As a teenager, during the summer months I loved sleeping in. But Monday's often woke me earlier than I wanted to the sound of the washer spinning out Mom's next load of laundry.
And being an older washer it often cluncked against the wall, or shook across the floor.
It aggravated me so much.
Jesse was up at 6:10 this morning.
Since its cheaper for us to use water before 7am I decided to put on a load of laundry.
Motivated by our last ridiculously high hydro bill :( and with this awesome weather I'll be hanging it out to dry as soon as the sun comes around to the back of our house.
I also decided that I was going to go back to bed for 20 min before Kristen went to work, since he could watch Jesse while he was eating his breakfast.
I got in bed and I heard the washer filling up, spinning out, rinse cycle.....you get the idea.
But I wasn't aggravated.....it was comforting.
It was a sound of my childhood and it made me happy. No 20 minute nap and all.
Speaking of remembering things from childhood...PLEASE read Myrna's post from yesterday.
Though my childhood wasn't exactly like hers, I can relate so closely to much of it.
It'll give you a further glimpse into the person that I am and where I'm from. I hope to eventually do my own version if my creative juices cooperate.
Happy Wednesday :)
