Every week, I collect all the clothing that I don’t want to wash myself and take it to a laundry service in Washington DC. I normally try to wash our clothing myself, but sometimes it just gets overwhelming. If my husband and I have special occasion clothing that we don’t want to do ourselves or risk running in the washing machine, we go to the laundry service, because we know it will be safe that way. Thankfully we don’t have to go far, because there is a laundry service downtown that we know and trust.
I bundle everything up in a bag, and bring it in. I love going there, because they know who I am, and always do their best to help me with everything I need. Because we are loyal customers, they give us good deals on their laundry cleaning service. Normally folding is extra, but that is not something that I have to pay for, so I take advantage of that. I even get special credits to my account when I refer friends and family that live in the Washington DC area. This is helpful and allows me to save even more money.
When I go there, I usually try t do so early in the morning, so I can avoid the busy intersection in the middle of the day. I find that if I go out after everyone has gone to work, I have better luck, rather than trying to go out on the road too early in the day. Otherwise the road gets clogged up with all kinds of people trying to get to work and take their kids to school, and I really don’t come out ahead on time than if I had done something different.
On my way back, I usually make time to go shopping downtown in downtown Washington DC. This is a lot of fun, and something that I enjoy because there are so many stores to visit. There is a toy store for my daughter that stocks all the little animals that she loves to collect. I usually go there and help her pick up a new animal at least once a week. This is something she loves, and they are so much fun for her to play with. I had the same types of animals when I was her age, and I think it’s nice that something from years ago is still around today.
After I’ve finished my errands for the day, I come home and start work. I think it’s nice that we have so many wonderful stores that take care of their customers here in Washington DC. I know I love living here and being around so many kind and caring people. I wish the rest of my family lived here as well. I’m hoping at one point to convince everyone to move down here with me, but until then, I have family away from family at the laundry service.
