B&B Laundry: A Mom Thing

May 4, 2010

The vintage flowered cloth bag with drawstring — (I’m guessing it’s from the 50’s) — hangs in the Butler Pantry.  Up until yesterday it had hung limp, waiting for its first collection of dirty clothes.  

Yesterday’s guests had not only gone to the river to go kayaking, but they had gone into the river, clothes and all, and those clothes were not going to wait nicely for a good washing.  They needed immediate attention.  So our guest came downstairs, with partially filled bag in hand, and asked me if I could do a load of laundry. 

Well, I have to tell you:  I was thrilled! 

 I couldn’t have predicted my response, but I realized what it was right away.  There has been a hole in this empty-nester-mom’s heart.  But a piece of it was about to be filled because of a bag of laundry.

 Yep.   B&B laundry is this mom’s thing.
