I'll have to take the Good with the Bad

What do you want to know first - the good news or the bad news?

OK here's the deal. B-O-T-H my washer and dryer broke at the same time! The SAME TIME! How crazy is that? Friday morning I put my usual load of white sheets in the washer, added my drop of detergent, set the machine to rapid wash and BOING -nothing happened! I didn't realize this at first, but while drinking my coffee and reading the paper I didn't hear any water running. (I have a keen sense of hearing running water ANYWHERE in our house!).

I called for Gary and we "read" the trouble shooting pages of the manual to no avail. We called the Miele repair service number at 7:45am and got a service man on the phone who walked us through some procedures to try and get BOTH machines running. FAIL! The earliest repair date is this Tuesday. GRRRR.

So here's the good news. And I'm sure you know what I'm going to say. I HAVEN'T HAD TO ANY WASH AND FOLDING SINCE FRIDAY MORNING! But by today - Gary got salad dressing on a new shirt - and well I guess I can HAND WASH the thing - but do I really FEEL like it?

OK I've got a bird roasting on the grill so it's time to go and check up on it!

Tomorrow is Monday - the start of a new work week. I'm hoping for a productive 1!

Oh man, that sucks! I wonder why they pooped out at the same time? It's like they were built to break at that very moment. GRRRR!!!!
