I knew that this house didn't have a dryer. Most people around here don't seem to have dryers. I see lots of clothelines. Even outside the apartments.
When we first got here and the weather was beautiful I thought it was nice to hang our clothes outside on a nice sunny afternoon.
I am over that.
Last week I did a load of laundry in the afternoon. I think it takes the washing machine about 2 hours to do one load. The clothes do seem more dry than our clothes . . but still, 2 hours?? By the time the clothes got on the clothesline it was was late afternoon. By sunset, the clothes were not dry. Not big deal, I thought. The sun will dry them in the morning.
It rained overnight and the wet clothes were so heavy that they snapped one part of the clothesline. My clean clothes were laying on the ground. Whites. On the ground. Great.
I had to get the kids off to school. Ellie's teacher wanted to talk to me. By the time I got back home it was 9:30.
I did not feel like putting the clothes back in the washing machine. I just sort of shook them off. They were really heavy and wet, but I just hung them back up. I somehow managed to fix the clothesline.
And I had more laundry to do. One load takes up almost the whole clothesline.
I heard a rumor that the grocery store has dryers in the laundromat. 10 minutes is 2 Euros. I am going to have to look into that.
