My washing machine died a natural death
I usually keep things so long - they die a natural death. I also procrastinate. I knew we were going to purchase a new washer and dryer - and I had to get it done before the end of Nov for the sale, but I waited. At least the dryer still works.
So Thanksgiving Day, I am doing laundry (I ALWAYS do laundry) I always say, we're either the dirtiest people or the cleanest! ANYWAY, I noticed my washer would not spin and drain the water out - I had all these blankets sitting in water. I tried to balance it -nothing. I figure, after 20+ years, she was ready to go.
So I knew, what I would be doing on Black Friday. I NEVER show myself at any store on Black Friday. I also knew, that I had to go to the Laundromat to finish my wash. So the husband and I braved the masses - and bought a washer and dryer at Home Depot. Actually, it wasn't bad at all. While we were there, we also set up a carpet measurement appointment and made our selection. That will take a couple of months for the carpet - which is great. Now I can clean my living room carpet for the last time, before I put up the tree. I can also paint the master bedroom and not be rushed!
So the new washer and dryer will be delivered in 3 weeks or so. That worked out for us too - we have to lay down the new flooring and paint work on the laundry room.
So it is all working out.
EXCEPT...having to go to the laundromat- Honestly, that isn't that bad either. No one was there and I could spit out, 4 huge loads of clothes and have them done all at the same time. Took them home to dry since the dryer still works.
Ah, life is good.
