-our water heater went out
-our ac went out (same day as the water heater I might add)
-our water company notified us of a water leak
-our washer went out last Friday
We're just praying that's the end for a while. We'll see. We were very blessed that our lovely washer and dryer had lasted 10 years...it was a hand-me-down from my aunt that then washed many loads of clothes for three girls in our townhouse during college and then moved with me when Justin and I got married.
So, needless to say, this weekend we surprisingly got to shop for a new washer and dryer. We found a fabulous deal that we couldn't pass up on a combo washer/dryer deal. Since our lovely little dryer is 10 years old, and seeing that Murphy has seemed to take up residence here....we decided to go ahead with a dryer also. We are now the owners of some lovely little Frigidaire front loaders that make me
Things I've learned or re-learned during this whole shebang....
-it really is worth it to be diligent about saving so you have an "emergency fund" for things like this (thanks, Dave)
-ac is very nice....but not a necessity (I guess)
-things are just things
Here's to hoping that Murphy gets lost on his way from my home to yours!
