You know what they need at the laundromat?

And seriously....why has no one thought of this before?
Treadmills. Or elliptical machines. Or stationary bikes. It would be perfect!
I had to go to the laundromat today. This is probably going to sound a little funny....but I have never been to a laundromat in my adult life. Not even at my first apartment. I was lucky enough to have an in-unit machine and dryer. I know!
So we went to the ranch on Sunday and Pete brought home 3 ginormous sleeping bags that needed to be washed. Enter: laundromat.
I really take my own washer and dryer for granted. What a complete waist of time the laundromat is. You stick your load in, pay almost 10 dollars to wash just 2 of the 3 sleeping bags you need to wash, and you sit, and you wait.
And you wait some more.
And you can't leave. I mean...what if that shifty looking guy over there steals your panties out of the dryer while you're gone? (not that I had any panties in the dryer, but you know what I mean)
Then you desperately shove your sopping wet sleeping bags into a dryer. Put another dollar in. And wait some more. Why is it so cheap to dry, and so expensive to wash? It only cost me about 75 cents to dry 2 ginormous sleeping bags.
They need treadmills at the laundromat. Seriously. I would totally hop on one of those if I had to use the laundromat on a regular basis. Might as well do something rather than just sit there and watch Montell. (which we couldn't even hear over the noise of the washers and dryers)
Laundromat owners: dudes, you could totally cash in on my idea. Send me an email and we'll work out the details :D
Enough about that.
Well, one more thing.... A laundromat would make an awesome place for a photo shoot. Seriously. Picture girls in fluffy petticoated dresses sitting barefoot on top of a row of washers? Or sitting inside of one with their feet hanging out! No?
Who knew one could write so much about a laundromat?

Treadmills offer a low impact workout. Their deck surfaces are designed to reduce pressure on your joints and absorb the impact of your feet as they repeatedly hit the surface. Most treadmills offer some variety as well. You can get more information about Treadmillswhich I browsed on internet can fetch you help.

That is seriously an AWESOME idea!!!! As you wait for your clothes, what do you do? Read (if you remember to bring a book), fuss at your kids, twiddle your thumbs? Exercise at the same time would be great!! :-)
