So--The last couple months have been...well they have been difficult. As I mentioned before, my father in law passed away on Nov 15th. We also got into a 30 or so car pile up in a freaky snow storm coming home from his burial. And also--by coincidence--my washing machine died the same day that he did.
We surveyed the situation and did a little shopping and decided to buy a whole new matching set. But the BUMMER of it all was that it couldn't be delivered until DECEMBER 15th!!!!!
That meant that we were a WHOLE MONTH without a working washing machine!!!!
Have I ever mentioned that we have 4 CHILDREN?!!
But--with the help of NUMEROUS friends and also my Mom doing many loads of laundry for me (THANK YOU EVERYBODY!!!)--we got thru the month.
And now we traded in these old babies:
(And yes--you will notice that my laundry room is also my garage--so don't mind all the extra cans of paint and other miscellaneous items in the picture. )
Old Knobs and Controls:
For THESE new Babies:
(They are LG Front Loaders from Home Depot)
They are HUGE capacity, Energy efficient, Sleek, Beautiful and MINE!
New Fancy Knobs, buttons and Digital LCD Screen:
AND a sweet little elf purchased us the Pedastal drawers that go underneath for our early Christmas gift!
The drawers are SO wonderful and ROOMY!!! Since we don't have a linen closet in our little house--I have chosen to use the storage for the kids sheets. And now I have SO MUCH MORE ROOM in the bathroom cupboards!!
AND I still have one whole drawer that I haven't even filled yet!
Even though the timing was AWFUL and I don't look forward to getting my credit card statement next month--I REALLY LOVE THEM!! And doing my laundry has never been so much fun or made me quite so happy!
Merry Christmas to us.
