Laundry Day

It always sneaks up on me. I know for a few days that I really do need to do the wash, but then when the search for underwear gets dire, I have to fold and do the laundry.

I used to be more timely in doing the laundry. I had it scheduled in my palmtop, to do twice a week, and Inanna would nag me until I actually did get it done and check it off. I'd do the laundry when I still had plenty of clothes in the closet to wear, and I'd get to wear my favorite clothes regularly.

That doesn't seem to happen anymore. Inanna's gone where even Enki can't bring her back, and I do laundry when I have the time, generally not on Friday or Saturday nights (I have to wake early on Saturday and Sunday mornings).

Right now I'm in the Discovery phase of the laundry cycle, which is where I turn to my closet and see an item of clothing and declare "I'm never going to wear that again!" even though I may have in fact worn it the week previously. The plain fact of it is, though, that it doesn't fit me correctly, and I prefer other garb... so I might as well have it pass on to someone who wants to wear it.

I don't think Sis is going to want the nice dark magenta shirt, though. Maybe I should keep that. Just for old times' sake.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
