The first house my daughter and I lived in didn’t have a washer and dryer. That was not a deal breaker, we were just excited about our new life.
Once a week we went to the Laundromat.
I had to make a choice to see this as a positive.
We lived in the country and the nearest Laundromat was 30 minutes away, but we learned a lot!
We valued clean clothes more than before since we didn’t have a washer/dryer readily available. We learned to include other errands along with the Laundromat. She would wash her clothes while visiting her father, and bring them home clean.
Of course my plan was to buy a used washer and dryer, but the laundry room in our home was tiny! It would only accommodate a small stackable unit and I knew I would not want to use that for years to come. The great thing about the Laundromat is you can wash and dry 6 loads of laundry in record time.
My daughter began growing weary of our trips to the Laundromat, but remained grateful. We believed our next house would have a washer and dryer, but that was dependent on our attitudes in the moment. I believe you have to be happy where you are, before you can move forward.
After a year and a half of using the Laundromat, the next house we moved into had a washer and dryer. They weren’t new, but we loved them!
When we came to look at the house we live in now, the first thing both of us noticed was…
Every journey has to start somewhere, and becomes more beautiful over time if we keep the right attitude. Yes lovey. xx Attitude is Everything.
