Laundry is Good Exercise (and so is counting blessings)!

Today I’m doing laundry, and counting my blessings! Both activities are giving me a workout, one physical and one mental! I am learning to wash my laundry like a pioneer women, a modern pioneer women who has running hot water! 🙂

I am here at my camper and laundry is piled up, it is calling my name and the boys are asking if its OK to wear their good jeans ( answer NO!) My #1 problem is in order to use the washers and dryers here at the campground you must be in possession of 10-12$ in quarters per week. Issue #2 My vehicle is not running correctly and my hubby is to busy to spend a day working on it,  ( issue 2b is we are in Texas and don’t know any reputable mechanics). I need the SUV to go get cash, to get the quarters. #3  I’d rather have the 50.00$ in my grocery budget.

Laundry Modern Pioneer Style

I was working on the first load in the tub this morning and feeling very grouchy. I was running fresh warm water for rinsing and gave myself a little talking-to! My attitude is my choice and I’m going to choose gratitude! I am grateful to have a back that doesn’t hurt now, a tub to wash in, warm water to use, and a nice awning to dry stuff from!

Laundry Day

I started listing my blessings while I worked.

#1 It cost less this way, the propane we already have is much more economical to heat the water, and water is included in our site rent we already pay!

#2 I don’t have to drag everything all the way over to the washroom, and then walk back and forth while waiting and changing loads.

#3 My tub is going to be so clean.

#4 The bathroom floor will get a good mopping

#5 I have wifi to use while I wait on items to dry. I haven’t had Wifi for 2 weeks.

#6 My feet and hands are getting quite a mani/pedi.

#7 This is a good prep for me if we ever decide to live on an “off the Grid” homestead someday.

#8 The humidity is so low that the clothing is all drying rather quickly.

#9 I am in possession of several sanity saving devices to help me! ( See this post)

#10 Maybe i’ll save enough to get me one of these cool clotheslines, (aff link) It looks very camper friendly!

It is amazing what choosing gratitude does for your perspective!
