What a day!

I usually update my blog early in the morning...but here it is 6:38 p.m. and I am just sitting down at the computer. This was like the day from you know where!

My daughter had a 10 a.m. appointment after which we stopped at Kohl's Department Store to make a return. We got home at noon, made lunch, she hit the computer & I hit the laundry. That was the good part of the day.

After doing two loads of laundry, I decided I should go ahead & wash the towels because I like them dried in the dryer and tomorrow is supposed to be very humid. No sense getting the house all hot. So as they're washing, I run up and comment on a few blogs, fold some dry laundry, etc. Finally the load finishes and as I reach in to transfer them to the dryer....they are soaking wet! Apparently, the basket doesn't spin anymore. Why oh why did my washer have to pick today at 3:30 to break? My husband tried to take the back off to see if it was just a belt that we could fix, but they make them so you can't even get the back off anymore!

So another trip to the closest mall-about 20 miles away-and we were just there Friday afternoon-to get a new one at Sears. It's being delivered Friday.

I was going to tell you about our wonderful weekend...but that will have to wait for another day.

Hope your day was better than mine.

Sorry to hear about your washer. It never occur to me the annoyance of a broken machine because I have always used the laundramat. If one is broken, you move to another one next to it.

That said, my new apartment has a laundramat in the basement so I do my laundry at 1 AM on Friday or Saturday morning when nobody is down there.

I drop the clothes in the washer, run upstairs to read the blogs, run downstairs to move it to the dryer and run back upstairs. You get the picture. :-)

Oh we had the exact same problem just about 3 weeks ago! Just about to go on holiday and we have to shell out $200 to get the machine fixed and it belongs to our rented apartment which we move out of in 3 weeks time - so we are not even going to get the 'benefit' of our money!!

Thanks so much for the good wishes for our news!!

I hate laundry. Mishaps make the chore even worse. Sorry.
