The comedy that is our home


     Doing laundry was an interesting experience yesterday.  I’m not supposed to lift anything so the plan was DH would carry the laundry basket to the cellar and back up while I loaded the washer and dryer.  Hmmm, we need to rethink that strategy.  A man who can’t walk well should not attempt to carry a laundry basket.

     Eventually some of the laundry was done.  DH has clean dark clothes.  None of mine made it yet but that’s my fault I should’ve sorted mine first.  Two more loads to go and we’ll both have clean clothes—although it may take a couple of days to do it.

     We’ve worked out how to cook and do dishes between us.  We haven’t any qualms about stopping what we’re doing to sit down and rest when we need to.

     I hate this.  I want my energy back.

  1. When I moved into my house there were a number of things left behind, This included a rectangular plastic laundry basket with a thin rope attached to each end of a short side. This rope went all the way up the basement stairs to a pulley system attached to a board above the basement side of the doorway.

    I tried it a couple of times and it worked reasonably well. You do have to pull or lower slowly, so it doesn’t capsize.

    Interesting. I don’t know if that’d work here with our weird stairs.

  2. But I am so glad the two of you can work it out!!

  3. It would be better if you could move your washer and dryer to the main floor in your house. That’s where my mom’s is….in what would have been her 3rd bedroom. It’s a blessing.

    Stair climbing is a form of exercise…there’s no place to put the washer and dryer on the main floor.
