Every now and then even those of us living a carefree life on the road are forced to do something that we really don't want to do but are required by the constraints of society to endure if we are to have even a fleeting contact with other human beings....So today I did the laundry.
I never look forward to it and always put it off as long as possible, some folks might say longer than possible, because I always feel that just one more day in a pair of blue jeans is not going to hurt anything. And when I'm living in the woods or the desert that attitude usually prevails. But when I'm around other folks like here at the Escapees Park I try to look a little better to avoid being constantly harassed by security.
If I could've found four empty washers and put everything in it once my laundry day would've been over before lunch. But unfortunately it was very crowded today and I had to wait for machines to become available so my laundry day spilled over until about 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
Now some folks might say, but Boondork why didn't it you just wait till another day to do your laundry when it might not be so crowded? And I would say it's because I have a one track mind and I tend to do things when I feel like doing them, and who knows when or if a fleeting thought may cross my mind to do laundry again. So today was the day.
It was a lot of effort but it got done and now I'm proud of myself for turning a two hour project into one that lasted about seven hours. I feel that I showed a great amount of persistence, patience, and perseverance to be able to deal with a laundry day that went terribly wrong.
