A Death in the House
This is true for people. It's also true for washing machines.
Ours died yesterday. It's cold dead carcass is just sitting there in the laundry room. I finally removed the clothes and wrung them out. Blaine took them to his parents and they rinsed and dried them. When he got home he scooped all the water out and dumped it.
I got online at sears.com this morning and ordered a new washer and dryer. We really thought the dryer was who was going to go first. So, since we were buying a new washer, we bit the bullet and sprung for a new dryer too.
We just got a plain jane, run of the mill, nothing special set. Yeah, the new front loader are super pretty, fancy and have all the bells and whistles. But, I got a washer AND dryer for about what a new fancy washer would have cost. I also did a little research and found a promo code and saved 5% off my purchase! woot woot!
I also hit overstock.com and ordered a new area rug! Found a promo code for it and got a super cute rug for $125!!!! That's including delivery. There's no way I could find a rug for that price in Memphis and them deliver it! I've ordered rugs from overstock.com before and loved them. But after six years of heavy traffic, we wanted a new one. I hope I love it just as much!
I'll be sure and take pics of the new stuff when it gets here!
