It's Here! It's Here!

When the doorbell rang this afternoon, I felt like the dad in "A Christmas Story." I looked at Abby who was blithely sitting at the counter eating peanut butter cookies, my eyes reeeaal wide, and said, "It's a major award!"

It wasn't really a major award, but I sure felt like it was. Because I'd been waiting all week for this.

Isn't she pretty?

I know, I'm pathetic. Such excitement over a washing machine.

People keep asking me if I got one of those fancy schmancy front-loading machines. You know, the kind like 99% of the world now has, except for me. Because I'm one of those change-averse people who really likes my top-loading machine, thankyouverymuch. And besides, I'm thinking ahead to the day (very soon, I have a feeling) when my back won't be what it used to be and I just might not be able to bend that far over without hurting something (those front loaders sit real close to the ground, have you noticed?).

So I stuck to my guns and got another top-loader.

Besides, have you seen where I actually have to go to do my laundry? This is so embarrassing, but I will show you the bowels of my home. The dregs, if you will. The ugliest place on my planet, which is probably why I hate doing laundry.

I have to go here:

I know. I'm pathetic.



  1. Talk about truth in blogging! Ha!

    I got a top loader too, when ours went out. The cost difference was substantial, at least at the time.

    Enjoy your laundry!

  2. Not pathetic at all, if you ask me! Then again, I have to do my laundry in the garage, so I may not be the best judge of such things. :) Have fun with your new "toy"!

  3. Congratulations! New appliances are always exciting.
    I do have a front loader, but mine are on pedestals so they're practically at eye level. Anyway you look at it, clean clothes is clean clothes. As for the laundry "room" - I long for a room I can turn around in. LOL

  4. Can't live without my washer. When I think of life without one... I am thankful for my not-so-awesome laundry area, too. Doesn't really matter what it looks like as long as the job gets done! Good for you!
