Much to Do, Much to Do

So I'm heading to Hometown for the weekend, and I have a bunch of stuff to do (small, stupid stuff) before I can get on the road. I'm sort of excited for the visit, but I also am not excited because I wish I didn't have to leave my house. I love my house. This will be my first overnight trip away from my house. This makes me irritable.

On the other hand, something I love about my house is having my very own washer and dryer, so right now I'm doing laundry and I was able to put that off until the last minute. There are so many things that are good about not living in an apartment, but seriously: having my own personal washer and dryer is tops among them.

But so anyway, I will be off until the beginning of next week, visiting family, whooping it up at my cousin's wedding, etc.

I'm renting a house this next year and I'm irrationally, insanely excited about the washer and dryer too :)

There's nothing irrational or ridiculous about reveling in your own laundry machines. I remember breaking down and crying right around the time I finished my Ph.D. because someone had stolen my good towels right out of the dryer in the public laundromat. I was seriously afraid of living in a crappy apartment for the rest of my life, and having to take a gun to the laundromat to guard my crappy laundry from thieves.

It's a real privilege to have a nice amount of space that you can call your own and keep other people out of. (Plus, a dishwasher is a real game-changer, too.)

Have a wonderful time! And just think: in a few days, you'll get to come home to your new house for the first time!

Being able to just chuck clothes in the wash whenever you feel like instead of having to engage in logistical laundry planning kicks motherfucking ass.
