Laundry, vacation style

5 people, an airplane and 1 checked piece of luggage leads you to this in three days...

How the hell am I going to carry all that crap down to the laundry room? Oh, no, I do not want help from those Pigs. I want time alone.

I loaded it up in my suitcase of course. Check the cute crochet flower I made. Hand spun yarn. Yes, my luggage is camouflage green with orange trim. Did you expect anything less?

So, my tips for travel:
1. Travel light
2. Obnoxious colored luggage
3. loud luggage marker (home spun yarn with crochet flowers optional)
4. Bring your own laundry detergent-Purex 3-1 sheets 20 loads $5. I don't want to do 20 loads, but I have that option. Plus, the Pigs have been know to barf a place or two, so I like to be prepared. Plus, sometimes I get barfed on by other people's kids.
5. Suck it up and throw the dirty ass laundry into your luggage and roll it down to the laundry room.

I pretended that I was on the phone with someone the whole way, and walked like I was Ginger from Gilligan's Island. Just to make laundry on vacation fun.

Then I went and had a lovely dinner with my family.

Ok, maybe it was a rowdy dinner with my family! Either way, it was fun! After, I went back to the peace and quiet of the laundry room and worked on knitting the Clap, oh, and the laundry.

Don't take the laundry out of the suitcases, just slide the suitcases down the stairs! That's how we do it up north!
