These are the mad musings of a middle aged woman, dyke, nurse, poet. I have a dog, a cat, a mobile home, and delusions of grandeur.

Fluff & Fold: Spreading the Wealth

I am a firm believer in spreading the wealth. Thus, feeling none too wonderful (tail end of some respiratory nastiness) and seeing my long weekend dwindling away, I decided to treat myself to the local fluff & fold.

I don't have a washer and dryer as of yet because my place has to be plumbed for it. Money I don't have at the moment. Normally I haul my things to the laundromat every 3 or 4 weeks for a marathon session. Today I hauled the same mess to the same place and simply handed it over to the person on the other side of the counter.

So while the nice lady washed, dried, fluffed and folded my dainties, I had my nails done, finished my grocery shopping, picked up some of the dog's medication, and stopped by Starbucks for a chai eggnog latte. Several hours later I received a phone call telling me that I could pick up my laundry anytime.

When I arrived, it was neatly packed into 2 large plastic bags. All I had to do was pay and leave. It wasn't necessarily cheap although for what I am paid I would have to charge myself 3 times as much to get the job done.

It was a nice reminder that time really is money. And there is nothing quite so precious as time. My advice to you is free. The next time you find yourself running short of time, pay someone else to do some job or other for you. You will not only save yourself some precious time; you will boost the economy as well.
