Recently I posted, The Reluctant Housewife: Shower Edition. What is a Reluctant Housewife? A career-minded, graduate degree holder with dreams of being an important impetus of change who got sick and sidelined and hates it. But here I am, and if I’m going to be home most of the week, I’m going to be the best frickin’ Reluctant Housewife I can be. Which means efficiency, since energy is a scarce resource in my world.
As an example of the household efficiency I strive for, I’ll take this opportunity to brag about the two clotheslines I recently installed in my laundry room. This new installation saves me from having to load heavy wet clothes into a basket and then lug that basket elsewhere to hang on a drying rack. Hanging laundry directly from the washer to the line, I barely even have to move my feet. I conserve energy and prevent painful time-wasting muscle spasms.
It’s not running the non-profit or government agency I always planned on, but for today, I’ll take it as success!
P.S. I bought the clothes lines here for a very reasonable $7.09 . I’m not getting anything for saying that, I just really like how strong they are, how they don’t tear at your clothes and how they even have slots for hangers. Plus they’re fun colors.
