Nearly two weeks after we moved into our house the dryer died. Kaput. We had budgeted that we *might* need to get a new one in our original plan but we were hoping for a bit longer than 2 weeks. Still as we debated about fixing the dryer vs getting a new one we ran a search and discovered that the old dryer was over 30 years old!
So it seems that a new one was called for. And then we got an awesome deal and we just had to throw in the HE washer too - it uses a quarter of the water that our old one does. Yay for being green! (Plus it holds twice as much laundry!)
So these babies showed up today and I am doing real laundry for the first time in basically 2 weeks. On a Friday night. And I am even excited about it. I am officially old!
