Susan spent a relaxing Sunday cleaning and reorganizing her pantry slash laundry room which is really just an alcove off the dining room.
Susan knows that a few might mistakenly assume that a dining room implies some sort of expansiveness to her home and she doesn't want that to happen here.
Having the washing machine and dryer so centrally located ensures convenience as well as the opportunity for Susan's dinner guests to see her dirty laundry anytime she has to get a new bottle of ketchup.
The pantry slash laundry alcove gets reorganized two to three times a year, and when it's not being reorganized it's a wreck. Sometimes the reorganization takes longer than it should because it sparks side projects like reading, taking long breaks or napping.
