Our first laundromat experience was interesting... The closest one is about 30 min away! Unless you can't find it, then it takes about 45. And then another 15 minutes when you realize you don't have any quarters or cash... Needless to say we weren't off to a great start!! But now we're off and running. The baby is driving the car and the husband is checking the timer! And dinner will definitely be later than usual.
