Trials and Wash Cycles

If you are anyone like me, you hate doing laundry to a point that almost defies convention. I would rather clean my bathroom with my own toothbrush in the dark than do even a single load of laundry.

This ends up with me having about 8-10 loads of laundry to do when I finally either A) get the nerve to get the task done or B) actually have time from an 80 hour work week to attempt such a task.

Yes, I know, if i just inched away at it day by day it wouldn't be near as daunting or overwhelming. But like I said.....80 hours away from home each week leaves me very little time to get anything done. Furthermore, when I return home the last thing I want to tackle is another chore.

So here's what really burns me and gets me irked enough to try to scream it all out on a blog or any other venue that I can find. LAUNDROMATS close at the earliest hours!! I just called about 6 of them in my side of the city and 3 were closed at 7pm, 2 more were closed at 8pm and one is open until 9pm. So, if you get home at 6pm from a 14 hour day at work, good luck getting anything done.

Oh, and by the way, I just got back from the one that closes at 9pm....I was about 7 people back from the next machine. Seems everyone in the city is as bad with laundry as I am. Not to mention that 1/3 of the machines are broken/in need of service.

In my building, there are 2 machines to wash and 2 to dry with. One of each is out of service, I have however managed to finagle my way into using one of them. I'm on my way to go get my 2 days worth of clothes dried and ponder how I'm going to get the other 2 weeks worth done.
