tax man

however incorrect the notion may be, tax returns has always felt like "free bonus money." i like to forget that it was money i already paid in the first place, and as a bonus- it need not be controlled by any of the normal budget restrictions.

normally that accompanies dreams of vacations or shopping trips. if you know bobby, he would strike that and insert- compressor, various large saws, and other crazy tools and truck parts...

a sure sign that we are growing up, is that this years dreams came to fruition in the form of our very own, functioning, new, clean, washer and dryer.okay maybe it is pushing it a little to say dreams... but imagine if you will- no more 4-5 cycles to dry a single load, and not taking all day to get 2 measly loads done (and admittedly when i wait for so long just to get them clean... it usually took a couple more days to get back around to actually folding them and putting them away...)

nope! this morning i happily got 3 loads of clothes cleaned while i worked in the yard. then i decided to clean every other linen in our house as a bonus, because i can, and because the machines blissfully do their job! this may be no dream purchase for many, but oh boy, it is making my day today.

Yes. It was a blessed day we got our washer and dryer. No more trips to the laundry mat. How I loathed washing clothes in a public washer, eke!

Congratulations on your purchase.

I completely agree that new appliances are exciting. It reminds me of the day at my baby shower when I was thrilled over diapers. You'll be SO happy to have a good washer/dryer with the new baby because even though their clothes are tiny somehow it adds up (ours about doubled with Sam).
