Laundry again

My gray coat is the wrong shade of gray. I thought I was getting a color that wouldn’t show the dirt. I was wrong, it is too light of a gray. This is the third time this winter I have had to wash it, which means bringing it to the laundry to dry the coat. It takes a long time since on delicate the washer doesn’t spin the clothes at full force. Of course I also don’t want to dry it on high because I don’t want it ruined.

All this means that I have to schedule my coat washing time carefully since I can’t wear the coat till it’s dry and the dryer doesn’t get it completely dry. Today I bought a other coat. It was on sale and it’s a very pretty dark burgundy color. I wonder if it will show the dirt.


or at least that was the plan, but my head was splitting, and wouldn’t you know I would find more stuff to throw out. Then I went to get coffee, and got yelled at because “Tigger needed the car.” I was confused since I thought that the car was mine on the weekends but now I guess that has changed. If the boys need the car they get it.

It made me mad, I get mad when the rules get changed and nobody tells me. I cried the rest of the day. Which of course made my eyes red and swollen and made my head ache. I was going to quit all my games on Words with Friends, but @alisonfaye wouldn’t let me. That kind of made me realize that no matter what other people do, in the end, I decide the course of my life. I did however cut Tigger’s iTunes allowance in half. If he can use my car whenever he wants, why should I give him so much money?

In preparation for the big move, because I don’t want to take a lot of useless junk, I am going through everything. Throwing things out like crazy. So all day Saturday that is what Gwen and I did.

We took a break to go to Sonic and then Borders, she checked her e-mail when we were at Sonic, (free wi-fi!) the Borders near us is closing, or has closed by now, and everything was on sale. I bought a couple of note books. One with a really pretty red rose on the front, two aluminum water bottles and Gwen got some DVD’s and notebooks. Two didn’t have prices on them so the clerk just said, “They’re yours.” and put them in the bag. Then we went up to Barnes and Noble, the cafe was closed and I hadn’t had any coffee yet. We also bought a couple things there.

Then it was back to cleaning, then after we were done throwing things out, I got to put the things I am keeping away. Of course now it is a lot easier.

Next weekend I will be cleaning another spot in my room.
