Laundry Day

August 2, 2011 // Posted in Life, Memories (Tags: , , , ) |  Comments Off on Laundry Day

As a kid in New England, my family lived in a small town with a lot of good people who took family life very seriously. It was one of those “it takes a whole village” kind of places.

Everyone in my neighborhood did laundry on Monday, and although we had electric dryers, a lot of women preferred to hand the laundry out on a clothesline. Tuesday was always dedicated to ironing the clothes that were washed the day before.

It’s funny how these little habits stick with you. I try to do my laundry on Mondays, but if something comes up and I’m too busy, then I make very sure to get the laundry done on Tuesdays. LOL
