The last few weeks have been a blur…tearing apart the laundry room and getting it put back together in a way that is more functional. On top of that, a good chunk of my time has been spent at work in the evenings/weekends doing taxes. I do enjoy it, but it has been a challenge to get used this new schedule…a “taxing” time as they may say.
Here is a pieced together BEFORE picture of the room (picture taken from the doorway of our new basement bathroom):

Points to address: plumbing issues, new window needed, floor to be tiled, appliances to update (they are on their last leg!), and pantry to organize….the list goes on.
Here’s how we had to finish our laundry on Sunday: (Nick always finds interesting solutions!)
Although I grew up hanging laundry to air dry, I certainly appreciate modern conveniences. My dear mother once bought an old wringer washer because she thought it would be “fun” to use. It was quite the all-day process (especially with 4 little ones running around). We ran the hose from outside into the house to fill it up and drain it. Then over again for the rinse load. Then of course you ring every item through that deadly hand squisher. And then you hang it all up to dry. It actually was kind of fun and an interesting experience as a little girl. I will never forget it. Definitely made me not complain as much about laundry. I have great admiration for those industrious women of the good-old-days!
