Naptime

Naptime

Today was for naps, kitty snugglin’, and a trip to the movies (by myself) to see the new Mission Impossible. Today was supposed to be for laundry, but I was able to postpone it due to an understanding husband. My reason: overwhelming laziness. He bought it!

Now all of you people with in-house washers and dryers, stop being such judgy-judgersons. When we do laundry we need to take it to a laundromat. Which requires preparations. Putting clothes in bags. Throwing bags down the stairs. Putting bags in the car. Driving to laundromat. Jockeying for a big washer. Finagling for enough dryers. Folding all the clothes and stuffing them back in bags. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh. And I couldn’t be bothered. We take turns doing laundry, and it’s totally my turn – since Edmund would often do many weeks in a row during school. But I wanted my day off to remain a day off. Doing laundry seemed too much like work.

If we had our own washer and dryer, it would be so awesome. Because if we needed clothes we could do just enough laundry to get by. But since we go to the laundromat, we need to do them all in one fell swoop.

My day started off with the best of intentions. I woke at 9:45 am, thinking about doing laundry. I laid down in bed and played with my phone. Then Squiggy decided to snuggle between my legs. Clearly a nap was in order. I woke up later, after extricating myself from Squiggy without disturbing his rest, and went online. It was after noon. The tide had turned. Instead of thinking about doing laundry I was thinking about how to get out of doing laundry. A quick text conversation with my husband determined that he would purchase some new underwear and socks, and I was off the hook until Saturday. [Note: he does need new underwear.]

Then, pumpkin pie for brunch, movie and now I am gearing up to play one of Edmund’s Christmas Gifts with him, Dominion Hinterlands. Good times.
