Living in a third world country comes with it's own challenges for doing laundry.
Take the last few weeks for example.
Three weekends ago we were without power for the whole weekend. So no laundry was done but everyone had to wear clothes and the pile gets bigger and bigger. The power came back on Sunday afternoon, and I was able to do one load because it was late in the day and had to be hung on the smaller lines. On Monday I had great plans to get a lot of laundry done but with the piles so big and a small washer I knew it was not all going to get done. Monday morning I got the kids off to school and proceeded to get laundry started, but the power went off again for the whole day. So the piles of laundry got one day bigger. The rest of the week the power plaid tag, and I only got about 5 loads done all week.
The next week was a lot better and I got the piles down and did some extra that was waiting for smaller "need to wash" piles.
The rest of this week has not been good for laundry.
Tuesday the power plaid tag again, and I didn't get any done.
Wednesday it rained all day, and I don't have a lot of space for drying in the rain so no laundry.
Thursday I got two loads done and then the power went off. It came back on later but by then it was to late in the day to get things dry.
And that brings us to today, and my great plans to get a small load done because it was raining again. I was just about to get the load going when the power went off and has not come back all day.
All this to say when everything is right you do laundry. I even found myself doing two loads on Christmas day this year. Something I thought I would never do. But there was some laundry that needed doing so it got done.
