Well, we did it!!!

We did it.

Gordon and I went and purchased a new washer/dryer combo. Our tax money this year was supposed to go towards gravel for the driveway and bark dust for all of our flower beds (when we actually get them in order).
Instead, we just spent it on a new washer/dryer set. It isn't even exciting because this is NOT what we wanted to do right now. I was much more excited about gravel and bark dust, but God had other plans for our money.
I have mentioned before that our dryer puts brown streaks on clothing and our washing machine hasn't worked in a week. I told Gordon we needed to fix the machine so I could do laundry, or it was going to cost about $30 to go to the laundromat. Seriously-I have that much laundry to do!
So, we decided to go look at washers and dryers rather than continuing to nickel and dime our old ones to death. If it's not one thing, it's another with them.
So, with that being said, we are now the owners of brand spanking new appliances! We went with a Maytag brand, front load set. They are white in color because white goes with everything. We opted out of buying the pedestals for now. To purchase those also would have put us over our budget. Maybe with the next litter of puppies we can go back and purchase the pedestals; or I could be white-trashy like and have Gordon build me wood pedestals for now! What do you think?

There is something to be said for red-neck pedestals! Go for it Gordon I hear cinder blocks with plywood work great.

Since Laundry is my most hated chore I am very happy getting new ones will make your life easier. Sorry you didn't get to gravel and bark dust.

Well you made a purchase that will last for many years I am sure. I like the idea of building your own pedestals and if you guys come up with a design for them and would like me to do it, I will volunteer to make that a project when I am up there in June.

Love Ya, Papa
