Worn Out

Hello. I am worn out. In more ways than one, despite wonderful things I've done recently.

The second hand on my watch from Tanya stopped at the exact moment that I looked at it a few weeks ago. Luckily, the watch stuck to the right time anyway. In Istanbul, though, it completely bit the dust. I could have bought a cheap watch there, but I knew I had another watch at home. But, what do you know, I pulled it from my jewelry box and it was also dead. So now I am timeless. (Who knew it was so easy to become immortal?)

Do you think it's bad that I just put a white load in the wash with detergent for colors? In any case, I'm glad to have clothes that no longer smell like creepy hostels and smoky buses.


  1. I'm sorry to hear about the smoke-filled bus. Chris and I had to deal with that on the last leg of our Brazil trip when we were on a 12 hour bus ride to the airport. SUPER annoying. There were cockroaches, too.

    I don't think it makes much of a difference to put whites in with color detergent. I'm no laundry pro, though.

  2. I do it all the time.

    I hope you're able to recharge a bit this weekend--just let those wet clothes wait and get yourself some extra sleep.

  3. Welcome home!

    (Your clothes are fine -- using detergent for colors just means your whites won't "fade" because there's no chlorine in the formula.)

    It's been fun to follow you on your wanderings.

  4. Thanks for the advice and the welcome homes! :)
