Of course. I find myself in front of a front mega loading washing machine watching my dirty, filthy clothes spin inside it. While all things seem to go south (haha) I sit quietly hoping to lose myself to a book while hearing a couple of washing machines and dyers spin. I’m in a laundromat if you haven’t figured.
Oh, and I’m in the south. August, Ga. After years and years of avoiding the laundromat at ALL costs (due to traumatic childhood memories spent in them washing our families weeks worth of laundry while watching my two siblings)… It’s no surprise that I’d end up in one here. I can’t help but find myself going to mentally negative places during this time.
This week has been a doozy. It seems like things just keep going wrong. Our new washer and dryer were supposed to be delivered today but something happened to their system… So no washer and dryer today. Our household items; furniture, small appliances, clothing, etc were also supposed to arrive today… Nope! Two more weeks till that happens.
So naturally, for me, seeming that all keeps going wrong, I’m not loving the situation. So I decided that I was going to change something about it.
Commencing Project: Love Where You Live~ Georgia Edition!
Today I rejoice in finding an incredibly awesome Farmers Market in the heart of Augusta right down the Savannah River. Wow! Fresh dairy, eggs, fruits and veggies, artisan bread, hand crafted arts, southern cooking and some (not all) friendly people.
I’ll admit that being out here came with a culture shock. The last three and a half years were spent near the beach, fresh weather, and hippies. So Georgia is a little different… But I’m going to learn to love the South and I have a feeling that it may not be a problem! Anyone want to go eat at Paula Deen’s restaurant with me?
