Morning Ugh and A Pollyanna Moment



Got up this morning to start the first loads of laundry and discovered something about the last load from last night.  A diaper ended up in the washing machine and of course it broke apart and left nasty little gel-crystals all through the wash.  These things are awful to clean up, if you haven’t had the pleasure.  They cling to everything.  If you try to clean them off with a towel, they squish.  The only way to get them off is running water.

So I spent an hour this morning carefully rinsing off every piece of clothing and bedding from that load in the shower.  I know I didn’t get them all but I’m hoping I got the majority.  And I’ll run them through separate loads today.  Which means instead of my usual two or three loads of laundry, I have six.  And that’s assuming I don’t have to re-run any of them.   It’s going to be a long day of running back and forth to the washer. 

That’s the unpleasant part.

But as I was doing this, I had a little positive thought.  This would be an absolute disaster if I was still working.  I would be going to work tonight and lose eight hours of time I could use.  Not to mention trying to get everything else done which I have to do today.

Instead of a disaster, this is unpleasant and inconvenient.  Nothing worse than that.
