Laundry Love!

Since before Christmas, we've been putting up with a whiny, out-of balance member of the family -- the washing machine!

I've been babysitting and sweet-talking my old machine so that it wouldn't break down entirely, while it chugged and jumped (out of balance) through medium loads. No small loads acceptable, no way, and no way would it do large loads either-- only medium!

I've been looking and thinking and looking some more for a replacement. I took Mr. Tennis with me one time and within 10 minutes, we bought a lovely front-loader from Sear*s! Guess we know who is the decisive one! ;) Two days ago, we kicked that old machine to the curb and welcomed the newcomer!

I love it!! It's so sweet and so cute! No one told me that front-loaders were so adorable! Now I can finally wash more than one towel at a time. I'm in laundry heaven!! Bye-bye top loader -- hello my sweety front-loading machine of ultimate clean!!!! Is it wrong to love a washing machine??? :)

Yay! You got your new machine. Congratulations on the newest member of the house.
It is perfectly acceptable to LOVE your new machine. Have fun!
I bet you'll find yourself wishing you had more laundry to do. I know I did...for a time.

Oh no it's not wrong to love such a wonderful machine. I don't know about you, but I must dump a load of clothes into my washer at least once a day. I was too cheap to splurge on a front loader. Looking at yours makes me want to get one now (ours are only 2 yrs old... I guess I'll have to wait a while). ;-)

Happy washing....

Nope. I totally get it. Nothing like a new, big piece of machinery that does everything you tell it to.

Bliss! Enjoy it.
