I’m finding that I am much more tolerant of inconveniences in this space I live in. Nothing matters too much life is simple, except for getting the laundry done.I should have left clothes behind that I won’t wear until spring/summer and then just buy a few things when I need them., like Reacher, who travels with what he has on and a toothbrush, he buys what he needs and tosses his old. Never having to pack anything. You know who I mean? Tell me if you do.
Instead I have some nice things stored in a box taking up space in my loft and some others hanging in my one closet ( because what would I do with them, I might need them someday, somewhere?) Now I wear the same clothes day after day and really only need a few pairs of sweat pants/tops. I don’t like going to town in sweats but I did it, won’t do it again, looks too sloppy, got to maintain a certain self respect.
I can see myself coming to the point of not changing clothes to sleep in, just stripping down and climbing into my heated blanket, no need for pj’s, one less item to wash or more if you change pj’s every night. I have lots of are socks and underwear. I have lots of tops I haven’t worn cuz it’s too cold.
Everyone here wears their clothes at least 3 times, and there’s no reason not too. , one friend told me he last washed clothes in May and he always looks nice and clean. Gone are the days of wearing an item once and tossing it into the laundry for washing whenever I want.
Laundry, this is all about laundry .
I can’t remember ever using a laundrymat , don’t even know how to spell it, washateria? It’s a simple thing slide your quarters in (16) add soap and wait. same with drier and wait again. If you are lucky and have arrived before the crowd you can get out of there quickly but sometimes you have to wait for a empty machine. You can read, converse with others stuck doing their laundry in public , or as I did last trip, I went back inside my RV to pick up stuff that had fallen during the trip into town. Cuz stuff always falls.
Soon all that will change. I’m waiting to hear about my smart car, it’s been a challenge that I have made worse by thinking I’d buy it here in NM. Instead I will buy it in EL Paso when it gets there, I am hopeful I’ll have the car soon so I can do my errands when I want to do them, without bringing my house along , but I’ll still have to do the laundry.
