Dream 02-18-2011 Laundry Room

Laundry Room

 

dreamI am in a laundry room. There is a large white counter-top along one wall and the washer and dryer are on the wall next to it, stacked one on top of the other. I am trying to clean out the room of old junk.

The washer and dryer have lain unused for awhile, apparently a problem with water intake. My main interest, though, is the counter – on top of it, and under it, are small piles of junk – mostly little stuff, but all of it needs to be sorted.

junkI start putting things in piles – to keep, to give away, and to throw away. There is little to keep – I find a few old toys from when the girls were little, and lots of papers, and some glassware – thinking it could be washed. There is also old clothing, dusty and unworn. Most of it is not even worth giving away – scraps of kids clothes, and some Barbie clothes, along with a Barbie doll.

Once it is all sorted, I notice a kind of panel on the wall, and open it – there is a gauge that can be turned to set the level of water in the washer – it is set to very low – no wonder the laundry has not been cleaning right – not enough water! I set it higher, and hear the water rushing through the pipes. Better.

I next organize a few things on the white counter-top – the keep-able stuff, that can be cleaned, or eventually taken upstairs. It looks much better now, though I am looking at the counter-top yet again, considering what I have chosen to keep and wondering if I can remove yet more, for an even cleaner worktop.

I decide to do a load of wash – the items to keep, mostly bath towels and such. I put them in and start the machine, and only after do I remember I forgot to reset the water up to a higher level, after having turned it back down. It’s too late now that the wash has started, but I will try to remember for the next time.

We are trying to prepare the house to show to eventual buyers, and in getting some of the clutter out of the way, we are realizing how much there is to sort through. Already we’ve been going through bookshelves and such, cleaning out and sorting, getting things in order as to what we want to keep, or not keep, and what is to give away, then what is to throw away. Exactly like the dream, but on a much larger scale.

The only association I have about water and water levels is that I’ve been somewhat dehydrated lately and really need to be drinking more water, but with all the sorting, etc, I am probably not drinking enough.
