Okay I confess....

October 5th, 2009 at 04:36 pm

I bought a new washer and dryer set on Saturday. However, we paid cash for the Whirlpool Duet set with the steam option. I am hoping to save money on dry cleaning and the water savings should pay for our garden next year. This was a planned purchase so should not count for the no buy anything for myself year.

I have been really down the past few days after seeing my granddaughter on Skype. She is growing so fast and we are missing so much. DH will probably travel to see her the first week of November. I cannot go since my coworker beat me to asking for that week off (she is going to a Nascar race) that the kids need us to babysit so they can go to the annual Marine Ball.

This is what makes me happy/sad:




I have not seen her since August 21st and will not see her again until the end of the year when I managed to get a week off. I hope Ally remembers me and greets me like this:



I am knitting this:


I should have it done by the time DH goes back to South Carolina.

Time to get up and use up the last of the zucchini in this:

and then if I have enough energy left I am going to make this:

Up and at em!

    Okay, I'll admit it, I have washer/dryer envy!! Stick Out Tongue We had to go with the run of the mill top loader. Maybe next time!

    Your little pumpkin will look so sweet in that outfit!!

    Look at it this way - a new washer and dryer (especially a purchase that was planned) could actually increase the life span of your clothing, so you have some insurance that you won't be tempted to buy new socks and underwear. (Maybe?) OK, it is a stretch... I'm just selling myself on the idea. But congrats on the new appliances, and on an absolutely charming little grandbaby. =)

    Hi for everyone! We need to go further than this and claim just the opposite. Thanks for the article.
