The Laundromat

Now that we are living in an apartment, we do not have a washing machine and dryer in the house.
We have to go to the laundromat to wash our clothes.  This weekend, mom told Nick he would help.

First we had to put the clothes into the washing machines.  Then we put in two dollars in quarters, turned on the machines, and put in soap.
We went out for pizza lunch while the clothes were washing, then we came back and took them out of the machine.  Nick had to put the clothes into rolling baskets so we could bring the clothes to the dryers.
The laundromat was very busy, we found one dryer that was not in use.  Nick put the clothes in the dryer and then we had to put quarters in again to turn it on.  While the clothes were drying we went to Waldbaum's to do our food shopping.
When we came back all the clothes were dry.  We put them back into the rolling baskets and folded the clothes on the tables.  Nick was not very good at this job, mom had to give Nick a lot of help and instructions.

Then all the clothes were clean and folded.  We put them into our laundry baskets and put them in the car.  We had two of them to carry, so Nick carried one and mom carried the other.  When we got home Nick had to help carry the baskets and food shopping bags up the stairs to our apartment.  Mom told Nick, "I never minded doing laundry at home, but going to the laundromat is a lot of work!  Thanks for helping today, we got a lot done and we had pizza lunch together, you did a very good job!"
