Kudos to you for staying strong despite a six hour long laundry run, TomCat. Tomorrow the magic 100 will be on your counter. And no laundry for another three weeks.

Laundry day or cleaning day can be tiring. So glad to read you got it done. Now you can rest, relax and enjoy your day. Take care. Kudos on your counter also.!! ;= )

It looks like Portland has some options for laundry services that include pick-up and delivery; most large urban centers support such businesses since it is not that uncommon for people to hate doing it or have limited windows of time for doing it where competing with other residents interferes with success. You could try it until you are done with PT and it might not take as much out of you. Kudos on 99.

5:37 But - I thought God hated figs (snerk).

There is no point in tryiing to do anything when you know you can't. There is also no point in frrling guilty about it (easy for me to say [tough for me to do]). You cut yourself some slack, waited one day, and got it done. So there.

Nameless - I assume if you washed every article of clothing you have by hand you would also hang them dry (or dry them flat). That alone could take an additional six hours. And wouldn't you have to iron them after that?

3:12 What gorgeous colours!

TC, I thought cats wear fur that is not removal thus negating the need for laundry? A little bit of grooming everyday, a brushing once a week, good food, lots of water and adequate sleep are all puddy tats should need. Would be a lot easier than doing 6 hours of laundry!

When I was in High School, I'd take all lthe laundry for parents, 3 brothers and me down into basement - the Sunday paper and a big sandwich with all the trimmings. I'd emerge from basement about 6+ hours later with piles of folded clothes/sheets. I guess I was a pretty good daughter.

Sorry I wasn't here last night. I am so glad to know all my friends on here have the same past as I. Nameless, the wringer washer was a treat for my Mom because she has used a pail and scrub board the first two years she was married. She never let us feed the clothes in the wringer, either, but we were put to work carrying the water to the washer. Those were not the good ole days for women.
