I took total advantage of the neighbors on vacation and did a couple loads of laundry yesterday. Two loads of laundry (one people, one dog bedding) wash, dried, fluffed, folded and put away while I was doing things like cleaning my house, weeding the flower beds, packing for the weekend. Had I done this at the laundromat, it would have been at least three if not four loads of laundry.
The only scary part was the amount of dog hair that got picked up by the lint filter in the dryer. I'm not talking about the dog bedding, I'm talking about my own clothes. It's one of the disadvantages of having animals. Try as you might, sometimes their hair ends up all over your stuff.
It did motivate me to do one heck of a dusting and vacuuming of the house last night as well.
