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.

scary If you've been following me, you would know I am not that social of a person. I used to be a social butterfly at one time...
