We got a new washing machine last night. It seems that the kids thought it would be okay to stuff a comforter in the old machine. Seriously?? If you have to sit on the lid to close the machine, it seems you'd know that the load was too large. But I guess not.
The old machine was a top loader and I did learn last night, at the appliance store, that you actually do stuff a front loader......so maybe they were just *confused* at the difference between "top" & "front". Anyways we got another top loader to avoid confusion - and because our old machine was covered on an extended warranty and therefore replaced at no charge to us. (Which is the first time that has ever worked out for us!!) So we purchased another 5 year extended warranty and figured by then the kids would be long gone and we could buy the machine of my dreams without fear of another comforter or something being stuffed into it!
So I am off to catch up on laundry, housework and pack for the weekend!! YAY!
