Laundry Day

It seems like every day is laundry day.

Elly’s cloth diapers have to be washed every other day. Then there are the towels, sheets, Elly’s clothes, and our clothes. With all the trips I make up and down our basement stairs going to and fro the laundry room, I’ll never need to buy a StairMaster.

Our washer and dryer are ancient. They came with the house and the gnomes only know when the previous owners bought them. It sounds like I’m complaining, but I’m actually shocked with their durability. They have taken on the extra load and presumable wear and tear without a hiccup.

Frankly, out of all the appliances that came with the house, only the refrigerator sounds like it’s on its last legs. It started making a horrible rattle months ago, but thus far the darn thing refuses to die. Perhaps it hangs around because it loves all the attention it gets from Elly.

  1. We have a refrigerator in our basement that we bought when we got married in 1987, and it was a couple of years old then. I guess the old appliances were made to last. And yes, it’s amazing how many trips one makes up and down the stairs in a day. You should keep track some time just to see! :)

  2. My washer and dryer were just replaced about 5 years ago …they were Harvest Gold from the 70s – in fact, it was the same model used in the basement scenes of That 70s Show!! And what did we do with them? Donated them to the Museum of Science and Technology in Ottawa Canada! They accepted them because of the connection to a popular tv series – That 70s Show! :) They still worked too.
