It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Inconsiderate laundry room manners & time is flying!

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

They say time flys when your're having fun but according to Al Bossence of the Bayfield Bunch that wasn't the case for him early this morning. Time drags when you have to go to a hospital because of a health emergency. That I know from personal experience. Your in our prayers Al. Please get well soon.
First thing after breakfast I went down to the laundry room to find it empty and quiet. Every machine was filled with already washed and already dried clothes. The machines were not running. I waited around about a half hour & the place started to fill up with people who couldn't remember which machines contained their clothes. When your waiting for a machine and people start getting the attitude that they weren't gone that long and why do you keep looking at them when you have been sitting there waiting and looking at your watch it is pretty nervy that they are talking like that. They scensed my impatients and started being verbally inconsiderate. I told them I was just waiting to do the laundry and  they keep making excuses and saying they weren't gone that long. This didn't help my Christmas Spirit any.  I just was wishing that they would fly out the door so I could get started on my laundry but I stood near the exit to cool down and let the other persons have time to leave. As they are leaving somebody else stepped in and threw their clothes in ahead of me even though I was standing their with my cart full of dirty laundry dah!!!!!. My time is definitely flying out the door and my laundry is not getting done. We had to get it done today because we are going out of town this weekend.  Very frustrating and shows lack of proper etiquette and no consideration. This isn't the first time this has happened.  They leave their laundry in machines and forget about it or go to there apartment and get busy and forget without a care in the world about tying up the machines.  It takes all kinds!

In the meantime Kathy had taken on the role of the Tazmanian Devil again and cleaned the apartment top to bottom by the time I got back. Time was definitely flying for her today.

Two more days and we're off to our sons in Beamsville for a few days to celebrate an early Christmas dinner and gift exchange. It should be great to see the grandkids open their gifts.  Ten more days and all the kiddies  around the world will be wide eyed to see how good they were all year by the presents they get on Christmas day. I'm sure they have all been pretty good this year!

I found a mistake in my calculations and went back and corrected them. It's only ninety-six more days to Spring. I told you time is flying. So let's slow it down just a bit by enjoying more Christmas lights.

It's about time.


You might be a Redneck if,
You've been hospitalized with rug burn.


  1. After waiting no more than 10 minutes, I say take the wet clothes out and put them on the counter. There are only so many machines. As far as the person putting their laundry in a machine while you were waiting, I would have spoke up. Well, actually, I probably would have been at that machine as soon as the other person had theirs out. If you were by the door, they may not have known you were there. It's no different in grocery lines. If you leave too big of a gap, there's always someone that will usually take advantage of that gap. Laundry room in RV parks just aren't big enough.

  2. You sure do find some great Christmas lights. Too bad about your experience in the laundry room. Yes, it does take all kinds.

  3. while reading your post I kept RVers aren't usually like that I've never ran across them being like that with the laundry facilities...then it dawned on me that you were home :) I understand fully..I remember those days when I was apartment living..going to the LR and all the machines filled and not even you one time I waited forever so I folded her clothes and put them neatly in her basket....she was upset that I did that..imagine...makes it worse when they try to make excuses for their actions..good on you for hanging in there...enjoy your weekend away and enjoy those grands!!!

  4. hate to say but I sure as heck wouldn't have waited that long for someone to return..I would have waited maybe 10 minutes..not back?..too bad..out your clothes come..especially out of the least then you could have gotten started!!..most people know how long the wash/dry cycle is..just plain inconsiderate if you ask me!!

  5. Beamsville!!! what a small world it is indeed. We lived on and off in Beamsville around 58 years ago. There was a mission home there for people home from 'the field' to stay when they were home on furlough. We stayed there on 2 occasions. As I was just a little girl I don't remember a whole lot about it.
