Adventures of a Single Mom 5

When you’re a mom of two girls, you have a TON of laundry. When you don’t have your own washer and dryer, your laundry overtakes your home… Until the neighbors call the cops because you’re screaming to be rescued. Haha, that’s how it feels anyway.

This warm and comfortable December morning, Zivah and I are Hallelujahin at the laundromat with our 8-10 small loads of laundry. We’re at my favorite location to do this nuisance of a job, where I’ve yet to encounter stares of utter disbelief. Single mom life is tough fokes, no one can debate that.

After the blood, sweat, and tears… As with all challenges, the end goal makes the effort worth it….. AMAZING SMELLY LAUNDRY…. (AAAHHHHH CHURCH CHIOR SOUND)! SURE it’s all over my house and my girly jump in it like piles of leaves. Sure I’m then out of dryer sheets because my daughter uses 35 pre-load… But, the refreshing feel of clean sheets… And that feeling of a shower then drying of with a fresh towel & putting on a cleaned set of clothes. That’s heaven on earth, for me!! It’s one of my favorite feelings in the entire world.

Here’s a couple pics lol.

  1. I grew up with my 12 year old brother, taking his two younger siblings to the laundry mat to do laundry. Our mom was a single mom and had to work up to 2 jobs to make ends meet. She also worked nights, allowing us to see her only in the mornings. My brother grew up fast, as so did we both younger girls, but they’re fond memories. He’d have us walk with him to the laundry mat, a couple blocks away, he’d sit us on a seat – we were maybe 5 and 7 years old at the time, buy us a bag of chips and do the laundry.
    He’s a great father now to his children and a loving husband to his wife.
