Have you ever had your doorbell ring at 6:45am on a Thursday morning while you're trying to get your 5 year-old daughter ready for the bus? Well, I can now say...I have!
Guess who it was? The Best Buy delivery guys. Surely, I was seeing things. I mean, they were scheduled to come between 7am & 9am, so they weren't going to show up until 8:59am, right?
WRONG! For the first time in my life, the delivery guys were early. Go figure!
Now, to the good part. What they brought me...
Tah Dah! My new Washer & Dryer!
(That's the fancy stand that Shane made me so they'd be a little further off the ground and we wouldn't have spent $400+ on "bases". And the one Shane made fits my baskets under it.)
One of the advantages of having triplets, is how (relatively) easy it is to talk my husband into new appliances. After all, I'm now doing 1000 loads of laundry a day (okay that's a slight exaggeration). So these way cool new washer & dryer are going to help me get that done...more efficiently. I think I sold Shane on the "it uses less water", "I can do more at one time", "The dryer turns itself off when the clothes are dry", "It'll pay for itself in a year" arguments.
But the best part?
The entertainment it brings the kids!
On the downside...there does seem to be a problem now:
See, I love DOING the laundry now with my new toys, but I seem to be struggling with the whole FOLDING aspect...
(By the way, in the picture of the washer & dryer, did you notice that there was YET ANOTHER load clean and dry...waiting to be folded & put away!?!?!)
