Ouch!! Cleaning out the car.

I have been struggling this week to get my car cleaned in preparation for trading it for my sister Gina's van.

It's also been a while since I visited Song, so my laundry has been piling up. Last night I did my laundry at the laundromat. I forgot how doing my laundry at the laundromat always incapacitates me the next day. It seems like a such a simple task. Take the laundry down to the car. Take the laundry into the laundromat. Put it in the machines. Put detergent into the machines. Put quarters into the machines. Wait a hour. Move the wet laundry to the driers. Put quarters in the driers. Wait another hour. Get the laundry out of the machines. Fold the laundry. Drag the bags back out to the car. Drag the bags up the stairs.

Even with taking my time and resting between tasks I was in pain by the time the I had the washers started. And I was still sore this morning. Mostly my knees and my lower back. But every time I stand up it hurts, more than usual.

I have a bunch of things I need to get done before I go to Philadelphia, and they are not done. I managed to clean out most of the car, except the trunk. But I collapsed after that.

I was planning on going to Philadelphia Friday, but now it looks like I won't be going until next week. :(

Oh well. At least I have more time to get things done.


That's quite an effort. Doing laundry in a coin-operated laundromat is a long, hard slog. It's no surprise you were in pain.

More time to get things done is good.

Thank you. I always think it should be easy. It's nice to get some validation that it is not easy.
