Today I enjoyed doing laundry! Before you start rolling your eyes, hear me out. Our washer has been banging around like some sort of model T or something the last couple of months.
I was in denial but I finally asked my trusty pal Google, who told me that the shock absorbers were probably worn out and that I should get it fixed rightthissecond before the whole thing bangs itself to the dumpster. So I called a repairman and he came today. Sure enough, the shock absorbers were wrecked and about to damage the circuit board, which would have been really expensive to replace. He fixed it up and also fixed the door hinge that was bent from a certain one-year-old "helping" with laundry.
For the first time in months I didn't dread doing laundry and I didn't have to brace myself against the awful noise. Why is it so hard to get stuff like this done? I know if you're working, it's a huge pain to take off time because you have a 2-to-4-hour window usually and that's really annoying. But I'm here all the time!
I got to thinking how good I really have it, picturing Caroline Ingalls beating their clothes on a wash board all day. It doesn't make me love doing laundry, but it certainly makes me appreciate how easy it is for me to do it.
I got such a sense of accomplishment from getting a nagging project like that done. Yay, me! I hope that inspires me to get a few other things I'm dreading done (lookin' at you, taxes).
Cheers to clean (and quiet) laundry!
