Ooh, You Make My Motor Run, My Motor Run, Gun it Coming Off the Line Sharona

Talk about Extreme Home Makeover. The 30-year old washer and dryer...

... were cream yellow ugly.

The new ones...

... are white. Who knew?

A bleach dispenser and a fabric softener dispenser inside the washer. I can't decide if I'm spoiled or just partially brought into the 21st century.

And they dryer...

... has a light inside. How fucking cool is that?

The best part is that I don't have to do 27 rinses. No, make that I can run the dryer on "regular" without blowing a fuse.

Besides doing over 10 loads of laundry so far, I've been working on these Easter cards for our family...

Oh, now, don't be too impressed. I got the templates for these little babies here.

The little bastards took nearly all damn day to cut out. But they sure are cute.

(And if this post seems a little odd, blame it on me being sick. And potentially overdosing on Airborne. And FREAKING OUT because Aaron is getting sent out on another business trip on Monday.)

I cannot believey you had to rinse towels 15 times. LMAO. It's like a flashback to the 1950's or something. Well. Ok. Close.

And damn straight a kid can hurt you! I had a split lip from a karate kick to prove it!

Oh - and the cards ARE cute and you are WAY more patient than I. I would have made one, decided who I like the best to send it to, and that would be that. LOL.

-The cards are very cute! I remember Luckybeans used that template too. So cute. I have that issue somewhere.
-Chain Aaron up! He ain't goin' nowhere.
