It's the Little Things

I went for a week without a washer and a dryer when I first moved into my apartment. I hated it. I hated having to lug my laundry over to my mom's place and then lug it back. I wanted the convenience and the peace of mind of having my own washer and dryer.

I can't believe how relieved I felt when I finally did get that washer and dryer in my apartment. I loved the feeling of knowing that I could just throw a load of clothes in and not have to worry about it.

Unfortately, the washing machine died quietly last night. I had just put in a load of clothes, it had filled with water, and then...nothing. So as of this morning, those clothes are still in the washing machine full of water because if I take them out at this point, they might start to stink. ARGH. Thankfully, there is a 90-day warranty on my washer. I hope it can get fixed before the weekend hits.

I can't believe how upset I was over it. I need a washer and dryer. I can get by without a dishwasher - I did for years. I can get by without a microwave. Heck, I can even get by without a television. But my washer and dryer? No way!

Needless to say, I didn't get any writing done last night. It wasn't that great of a day anyway, and the washer breaking was the icing on the cake, so to speak.

But today is a new day, right? :-)


The washing machine is FIXED! It was the motor - and thank the Lord that the mechanic was able to do it today. I didn't want to go through the whole weekend without it!


  1. Sounds like it's time to have a heart-to-heart talk with your major appliances. They need to have a little more consideration.

    Hope today's better!

  2. I hope your day goes better today. It's nice to know that it's a new day with no mistakes in it yet. (As Anne of Green Gables would say). :-)

  3. Yeah!!! On the fixed washer!!!

  4. Hugs on the broken washer, but glad you got it fixed!

  5. That's great your washer is fixed!!! Mine is not doing a final rinse and spin... odd. And it takes 4 times to dry a load of clothes. Hubby gets all his holiday pay in May and he said if we had enough he buy me one or the other. We can't do both. As long as they are washed I'll hang laundry all over my house to dry if I have to.

  6. I'm with you - I need the washer & dryer. Lugging dirty clothes around is just too much of a pain in the butt.

  7. Glad the washing machine got fixed!! And hope your weekend was a good one :-)

  8. Hated lugging clothes to the laundrymat in college, so I'm definitely with you on the washer/dryer, but I'd have to think carefully about that TV thing :)

    Hope today goes better!
