... when the sight of these beauties fills your heart with joy! It's true. I am really rather excited about the upcoming delivery of our new, beautiful, EnergyStar, front-loading washer/dryer pair! Hurrah for Boxing Day and its amazing sales! My life is about to become so much easier. Think of the time I will save. The money that won't be wasted. The beautiful clean clothes I'll be pleased to fold and put away (okay, maybe that's overdoing it a bit!). Think how stylish my laundry room is about to be. Hurrah! (it is my secret wish to have a laundry room like Martha Stewart's, one with huge, shiny counters to fold clothes on, lots of stylish storage, and detergent in pretty cannisters... And this, while not quite as fab as that, is a step in the right direction)
We pushed and pulled our old, not-too-efficient washer and dryer out the front door last night and bade them farewell. We sold them on to someone who needs them, someone who doesn't have a million loads of dirty, little-boy laundry to do each week. They just weren't doing what we needed them to any more, so it was time to move on to bigger, better, higher-capacity things!
Old and boring, me? Maybe a little bit. But at least I'll be old and boring in clean, soft clothes. And that will just have to do.
