Sean is great but wasn't used to the all-day laundry routine I normally have going here. Seems like in between every daily activity was a run upstairs to rotate laundry, fold or put away.
And then... a few days after Addie was born... the dryer died. And it was pouring rain outside. And my clothes rack is so small it only holds baby clothes or socks....
Someone lovely offered us an extra dryer...
But this is the third (yes, third) dryer we've caused to bite the dust in four years. Sean was thinking a warranty might be a good idea. So one dreary Sunday, while I hung laundry from the upstairs railing, banister, shower curtain rod and any other free space in between kids, Sean ran out and brought home these:
from a major retailers scratch and dent place, with warranties and (so smart that he is) they're ranked high by Consumer Reports. Not just a dryer, but a high efficiency washer too! I looked at the trailer he brought them home on, puzzled at two things on the back of it.
My sweet husband first apologized for buying me appliances (I was over the moon, happy!) then told me he didn't want me spending the best part of my days doing laundry (heart melt).
They light up like space-ships and I've just mastered the basics but already I am down to doing two loads of laundry a day with sometimes a small third load (cloth diapering) in the middle of the day. Before I was typically doing 4-5 loads a day without diapers.
Just thought I'd share my laundry blessings!
