Dad goes to his Day Center on Saturdays from 9am to 4pm. I deem that as my “free time”. I truly dislike doing household chores during said “free time”, but OH MY GOODNESS, it is so much easier to do laundry & clean around this place when he’s not here!
Laundry Example: We’re in an apartment building, so the laundry room is down the hall. The act of locking the door behind me, & unlocking the door when I get back is so miniscual when you think about it, but SO freeing when you don’t have to do it!
I mean, think about it; I’m lugging 2 loads of laundry out the door + detergent + bleach + my laundry card. I put all that down, turn around to lock the door, put the keys & cellphone in my pocket, pick the stuff back up, head down to the laundry room, do the laundry, set my timer, come back, get key out, unlock the door, go in, lock the door.
When Dad’s not here? I lug 2 loads of laundry out the door + detergent + bleach + my laundry card. I head down to the laundry room, do the laundry, set my timer, come back, go in, lock the door.
I mean, the simple math is right there! hahaha 🙂
Ok – my timer just went off. Time to go do another load! 😉
