I have finally finished my chores for the night and showered and it’s only 1:10am. Whew! I had no idea that stepping into my wifey extraordinaire shoes was going to be more difficult in the rig than in a sticks & bricks…
How? So glad you asked!!
First things first – the dishes had to be done. Badly!! And of course we were completely out of water. So off to the laundry room I go with my 3 gallon size jugs. Get those filled and back to the rig to fill our larger container with a spicket. It’s perfect for rinsing our hands and dishes but dreadfully heavy to fill and carry back. Off to refill the jugs again with hot water for the dishes. Back once again and now I’m prepped to actually do the dishes. I put on a movie to keep me company – Paul – a very cute, light-hearted movie about an alien trying to get home. Now I’m ready to Wash, Rinse and Dry every dish. Dishes done but all the jugs are now empty again. Off to the laundry room for the 3rd time to top off the water supply. Round One Done.
Next task was a load of laundry. Gather all the clothes, grab the huge jug of soap, count out my quarters and off I go to the laundry room. Load the washer and head back to the rig. While doing the laundry I put in another movie, this time I opt for the long but fabulous Pearl Harbor. In between flipping the load (another trip) and adding another 30 mins to the dryer (one more trip for good measure) I sit and roll smokes while watching my movie. Perfect timing!! I’m done rolling just as the laundry is ready to be brought home. One final trip, for the laundry at least. We got a little behind on the folding so while I only did one load of laundry I have 3 full loads to fold. Dump it all on the couch and fold away. It’s all stacked nicely on the bed for Chris to put away since I can’t reach the overhead bins in the bedroom.
Next up is cleaning out the fridge and then to take the trash out. Something was starting to smell funky in the fridge – had to find the culprit!! Turned out to be an expired tomato hiding in the back of a shelf – Gross!! Off for another trip this time to the other side of the park to the dumpster.
And now for the final trip – the Showers!!! That tomato wasn’t the only thing smelling funky after all that!! There’s nothing like a long hot shower!!
Mission Accomplished!! And it only took 9 trips to get it all done!! Well, done for the night at least. Much more to tackle tomorrow but the most pressing concerns have been addressed. I must admit that my feet are sore from all the running back & forth tonight. I wasn’t expecting that so I guess they’re not all better like I thought…
I can’t help but wonder what it’d be like to be able to turn on the facet in the rig and have water… On the bright side, by the time that happens we’ll be experts at conserving water!!
I’m off to lounge on the couch with my book until Mr gets home. Then we’ll chitty chitty about his day and I’ll make him a snack. Did I mention I LOVE being wifey extraordinaire?? It’s the bestest job in the world!! The pays good too!! Kisses are better than cash in a lot of ways…
With much love
