At least it looks like it is right now. We made two trips on Monday to pick up a new washer and dryer. We discovered the power was out in the neighborhood after we got back with the second load (the washer). So of course nothing was happening as far as hookup was concerned. I grabbed a book light and headed out to the patio to sit and read where it was a bit cooler than the house. The power was restored a little after 9PM. I was happy because sleeping would be better with a fan and I could set the alarm so I’d get up for work in time.
After work on Tuesday we got the dolly and hauled the washer and dryer into the house and hubby got them hooked up. We ran our first load in them today and they work as expected. Yippee! This set is old-fashioned looking, but I really don’t care as long as they work. We decided on Speed Queen because it’s the most durable one we could find with the best warranty. This set is made industrial strength, so everything is metal. There are no plastic parts or fancy electronics. I think we’ll be very happy with this and it should last us the rest of our lives, I hope.
As far as other news, I’m taking care of the neighbor’s cat again for the next three days. This is Sherry’s last trip of the year, supposedly. The cat, Snuggles, was very happy to see me tonight.
I’ve been saving for months and finally got my new laptop today. I’m thrilled with it so far, but spent most of the day loading programs and getting to know the computer. The screen sure is small compared to my desktop. My other laptop quit working little by little quite a few months ago. This one came with a nice Office 2010 program so it’s quite different than my old Word 2003, which I loved. Now I have to learn this one when I have time. At least this gives me mobility so I can take it when I go to Texas to visit family.
