Relaxation Maximization

My newest favorite thing is sending out my laundry to be cleaned. It's pretty much the greatest thing ever. For a $1 a pound, not only does sending out my laundry save me hours of time that I could be using for something far more enjoyable - like sleeping, planning my upcoming vacation, catching up on my DVR-ed shows, or hanging out with my friends - but it also spares me from having to descend into the spooky depths of my apartment building's basement. If you've seen the movie the Saw, you'll know what I mean.

Within a two-block radius of where I live there are approximately a dozen laundry mats, 4 coffee shops, and 3 grocery stores; all of which makes taking care of errands very convenient. This morning, on my way to my second-to-last-Friday-of-work-ever, I dropped off all of my laundry. Walking back home tonight I picked up a shrink-wrapped rectangle of perfectly folded, fresh smelling clothes.

Could anything be more perfect? Happy Friday!

I don't even know if we have laundry service like that around here. It would be the greatest thing to not have to do laundry for four people. Including two kids that are dirty.

Do other cities not have this? I used to think using those kind of services was decadent but it's a huge time-saver so it's worth it at the moment.

I can't imagine having to do laundry for anyone else but me, let alone kids! Lass, you are a busy woman.

From the girl who has like 13 loads of laundry waiting for her in the laundry room -- niiiiiiice. ;)

that is one of those cool city things. I used to get my laundry sent out to once, to mom!
