Good and Bad

Bad news: Koen is back on the couch with the bucket today.  He started vomiting at 6:30 am and didn't stop til noon  4pm.  So frustrating as he already had it last week and then Kai got sick.  It's frustrating because I cannot leave the house with contagious kids.  He misses preschool, swimming, church etc.  I couldn't even get Kai to school today because I couldn't have driven with Koen this morning.   I miss a lot too :(  It makes me very, very housebound with many, many germs.

Good news: Our new washer and dryer arrived today.  I've felt sort of guilty for spending so much. I don't need such a fancy one. We could have just replaced our dryer with a used one for $100 and made it work for another 1-2 years. But, it's done.  I couldn't resist the deal.  My father in law is going to try to fix the dryer and then sell the set.  Every dollar counts!

It's here.  It's lovely. I had to read the instructions for half an hour before doing my first load but I think I have it figured out.
There's even a rack that you can use for shoes if you need to dry them.  

At least doing the laundry was fun today.  
Love, Louise


  1. BEAUTIFUL washer and dryer (yes, I just said that, we moms understand eachother)

    And so sorry about the tummy bug. AWFUL!

  2. BLAH to the flu!!! I hope he's on the upswing now.
    LOVE the new w/d!!! A wee bit jealous ;) Only moms say this, right???

  3. A young family like yours needs to have a good, reliable washer and dryer - and if you are getting something new it might as well be modern and good looking! Enjoy! Hope everyone is feeling better soon.

    Louise, I do believe your new washer and dryer paid for itself in the past 24-48 hours. Poor little kiddies....L
    PS I'm always annonymous as no other "identity" seems to work for me!
