Homeless in Marksville Day 12

Homeless in Marksville Day 12 July 17th 2016

Hello everyone I have my grand daughter today as well. My daughter will be taking me to the store and to do laundry tomorrow. The girls and I walked over to the Dollar General. I had to sit down a few times but we made it there and back in one piece.

Washing Dishes when you are homeless in a Motel.

I thought I would take this time to explain how we do dishes when you live in a motel. First of all the only sink you have is the one in the bathroom so you have to keep it clean all of the time because you will be washing the dishes you are going to be eating off near the place you deposit all of your food when your body is done with it. Certainly not the cleanest place to do your dishes but better then nothing at all.

First of all I stack all of the dishes to one side. We are lucky that this one has a small counter around it, at the last place we only had a short pedestal sink which was barely big enough to wash your hands in. Then I fill the sink with soapy water wash the dishes, then let the water out, rinse the dishes, and then I place a hand towel from the motel (we didn't have that option in the last place) into the bottom of a .96 dish pan that I picked up to stack the clean dishes in (someone what like a dish drainer but smaller). Once the dishes are dry we put them away.

Now back to our day which was pretty much the same as the day before just with the added walk and fresh air. I did take a video and a few pictures but of course the walk tuckered me right out, so we  turned in early.
