Musings from the Laundromat: Fathers and Felons edition

First of all, Happy Father’s Day to all the great dad’s out there.  And Happy Father’s Day also to all you moms that have done it alone.  I’m raising an imaginary glass of champagne at the screen and cheering you all.

I’m sure the dad’s are thinking, “Great.  Couldn’t you be raising an imaginary beer or single malt?”


Onto felons.

(My segues are ingenious, she says sarcastically while moving the imaginary glass of champagne out of the way so it’s not knocked over by her writing prowess.)

Yesterday was a pajama day for me.  Just me, the dog and Litchfield Penitentiary.


Well, almost.  I have 3 episodes to go.

I’m definitely enjoying Season 4 over Season 3.  No spoilers.  I’ll review the show when you’ve all had a change to binge watch.

So after today’s Fathers Day brunch across the river, I’ll be returning to my Netflix nest and finishing up those remaining episodes … Then I’ll feel guilty about not having scrubbed the house – then either a) get over it or b) actually scrub the house.  I’m thinking maybe a little of both.

Time to check on the machines … And drink my weekly cup of coffee (I still haven’t had the heart to tell the laundry lady I don’t drink it anymore.  But since she’s so sweet to make it just for me – I must courteously caffeine.)


Once again, happy Father’s Day Soupers!!!

Musings from the Laundromat: OINTB, Too Chatty & Still Craving that Burger Edition.

I feel like a mini-monster.

I haven’t seen glaucoma man in weeks – due to coming late or doing laundry on different days.  He’s here, and he wanted to catch up and I just needed him to stop talking.

I started doing that ‘slowly inch away from the person shuffle’ but my hints were not received.

I adore him.   But I’m tired.  We still managed to cover everything from Jackpots to Blood Pressure to Talent – before I made it to my table.

I literally woke up after less than 6 hours of sleep  – with a raging Orange Is the New Black binge hangover.  Blurred vision, theme song repeating in my head – stumbled to the bathroom and brushed my teeth.


If you’re a fan, I won’t put any spoilers here – but I WILL say that after an amazing Season 1, then (for me) a disappointing Season 2 – this latest Season hit it out of the park.

To my honey’s credit – he watched every single second of all 13 episodes with me.

Made sushi this weekend – and yesterday morning.

It’s VERY cheap to make!  And easy.  I taught Jim how to do it and he became quite the pro – didn’t even use a rolling mat.



SO a plate full of sushi and fresh coffee and then our Netflix marathon ensued!

Our original breakfast was to be sausage and eggs …. I bought 4 garlic/onion pork sausages –  but after my last post, didn’t think that chowing down on pork was the best route to take.  ALTHOUGH … they are already in the house, and defrosted, and we can’t be wasting money or food.

Ok! Ok, I’m still craving meat.


But I have been good.

And I’m REALLY going to try to stick to the no cow or pig diet.

I’m on the fence about chicken … and definitely still plan to eat fish.

Baby steps.

Like shuffling away from a conversation in a laundromat, I’m inching away from the meat.
