All Washed Up

It Died...my washing machine I've had since Dakota was just a few months old, shuttered it's last sound.  Monday it just decided it can't spin the water out anymore.  We knew it was dying when it kept shuttering and groaning during every spin cylce.  For the past few months I was having to spin out everything twice, plus add extra dry time to the dryer because it just wasn't doing the job anymore.

I suppose 17 years worth of washing laundry at home it has done its job.

So Wednesday night Kyle picked me up from work later and we went washer shopping.  Bummer is they did not have it on hand so we will get to pick it up this Tuesday.

I'm excited for my new washer.  It uses half the amount of water that my old one used and spins the clothes out almost dry.  So to make up for having to buy another one I will save on utilities. 

I have been hauling clothes to my mom's since Thursday 2 loads at a time and she has been gracious enough to not make me go to the laundry mat.  I've been using her machine which is similar to my new one and I know I'm going to love it.

I think I endured this one cheerfully.


  1. You're going to love your new machine. When mine died a couple of years ago, I had no idea how bad it had gotten until I met my new one. Which I'm grateful for every single time I do a load.

  2. It is so hard when the washer goes that is when you know how much laudry you did in a week
    enjoy your new machine.

  3. This sounds like a soap opera! (get it? SOAP opera?) Ok, so I'm not very funny..I hate spending money of things like that..mainly because I don't do the laundry (Jack's job) but I'd rather buy something fun. Don't ask me what, but something has to be more fun than that! Enjoy it and I hope you're feeling better. Kyle and Kim did a super job today at Church. The best Scout Sunday in a very long time!

  4. Hope you like your new one. I am not looking forward to replacing mine because some of those new ones seem kinda temperamental.

    My sis loves hers, though. Did you get a front loader this time?


  5. Wow! Your old washer sure did live a good life! Just to imagine it washed Dakota's baby clothes all the way to his "big boy" clothes. Awwww.
