The Washing Machine Works!

I feel like I left you all hanging after my daily updates on my washing machine saga. Work has been crazy busy, and combined with cleaning, planning and doing a few things for the various weddings I’m attending for the rest of the year (three of them!), blogging has not been in the cards. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things again!

So the short version of my story is that the washing machine is finally fixed.

The parts finally came in, and I got a call from the repair company. When they wanted to schedule an appointment, I told them that I wanted the same guy as the last appointment, since he seemed to be the only one who knew what he was doing. Fortunately, that worked out. Continue reading

The Saga Continues…

I’d like to say that since I was finally home (and relatively illness free) this weekend that I got a ton done around the house…but I’d be lying. After a long week at work, and all of the travel and sleeplessness, insomnia, jet lag, etc. of the last month, I was just plum exhausted. So yesterday was officially a lazy day – I decided that if I woke up and the weather was bad, I’d just be couchbound – and when I woke up, it was 45 and rainy.

Perfect inside weather!

Now, there is plenty I could do inside, and with all the spring-like weather lately, I should be working on some spring cleaning. But instead, I watched my DVR’d shows, took a nice long nap, and worked on some crochet projects. Today was more of the same, although I did get motivated enough to vacuum the whole house, and steam clean the first floor, as well as take all the garbage/recycling outside. Continue reading

The Never-ending Washing Machine Saga

This has been one crazy month. I flew over 32,000 miles in 34 days, in 10 flights.

Needless to say, I’m EXHAUSTED.

I’m finally home for more than five minutes, and yet, my washing machine saga continues. When I last left you, the part for my washing machine was on order, and I was hopeful that I could get everything taken care of in between my travels. Despite feeling like total garbage after my first trip (the London-Italy-KL trip), I had to spend about six hours at my parents’ house doing laundry. It’s not as bad as it sounds, because they have a comfortable couch, so I set myself up with my laptop and the tv, and realized I didn’t have nudgy puppies bugging me like at home. So it was actually fairly restful.

But three weeks’ worth of laundry, which included virtually everything I own, meant that things were air drying everywhere. I left it all there late that night, and returned the following day to pick it up. Originally, my mom was supposed to be coming to my house to watch the pups, so I figured that she could be on hand to let the washing machine repairman in, so that everything would be right as rain when I returned from trip #2 to Dallas.
