See how lovely this looks?
The sweetie and I spent last evening looking quite a bit like the
(not a look I would advocate)
as I checked on the laundry yesterday afternoon...
I discovered that the load, which had been
The dryer passed away from exhaustion.
has been complaining,
that she is
carrying the load....
the washer, bless her heart,
has been struggling along on one cycle
for over a year.
She's over it.
after a trip to the local Lowe's,
to make arrangements for a new duo...
we started to think about the
configuration of the laundry room,
and the fact that we had just commited to
a new set,
that was considerably larger
than the funerary couple.
when we arrived home and started to
measure (that's what engineers do)
and visualize (that's what photographers do)
we realized that
we were cornered.
We had to find a new place for the
refrigerator, left over from our
taking off it's doors,
and taking out all the contents...
and moving it down the hall to a
storage closet filled with chairs.

wet laundry sitting around waiting for
it's turn in the tumbler?
After a break
to dry laundry at the parents,
(who served us tuna casserole, how lucky are we!)
we came home...

what to do with the
eight dining room chairs
that had previously been stored in the
closet where the fridge now hummed contentedly....
make the guest room beds that were waiting for the
newly dried sheets....
find a place for the microwave, whose only use is to
pop popcorn during football games....
it was like dominoes.
