I took my washer for granted.Posted: April 10, 2013
Until it started leaking and I couldn’t use it for nearly a week. Now, *hangs head* there’s a huge mountain of dirty clothes piled up in my pantry. No, I don’t normally keep clothes in the pantry, but we had to clear the laundry room so we could work on the washer. My kids are complaining that they have no clean clothes, but I know the truth… they have no clean clothes they *want* to wear. We’re almost out of clean towels, and I know it will take me days to catch up (especially since I don’t run the washer or dryer during peak power rate times (noon to 7pm here.)
The repair man will be here any time, with the part in hand, and we should have me up and running in short order. Oddly, I’m actually eager to start the washer running. It’s been a while since I could say that.
What parts of your life, automated, electronic, or human, do you tend to take for granted?
In the mean time, the kids are back to school and spring sports are back in session, meaning I spend little time at home after 3pm. Most of my evening writing is done at one ball field or another while waiting for kids to practice. But the good news is I’m getting back into the swing of the White Mountain Chanat series and making decent progress on the next book.
