New Washing Machine!

We got a new washing machine today--Happy Birthday to me!! Kevin of course had to "test it out" and ran a couple loads of laundry. Awwww, shucks. It's a front-loader and we'll probably save a million dollars on our water bill alone. Kevin calculated that our last washer used a huge amount of water. Not only will this be a nice savings, both for our wallet and the planet, front-loaders are so much gentler on your clothes. Instead of agitating and wringing, they just toss them around in a circle. Longer lasting clothes are always a bonus, especially with a baby on the way. Plus the capacity is bigger than our old one, despite being a front-loader. It's got an extra high heat setting too for baby items that need that extra oomph. I think we're going to try to sell the old washer on Craigslist. It's a good washer and not really that old. Well, it's 9 years old, but it's a Kenmore and works as well as it did the day I bought it. Hopefully we'll get a few dollars for it. Yay for new appliances!

Nice! We're going to be buying one in a month or so - is that an LG? I've been spending way too much time thinking about washers and dryers (and fridges and lawnmowers and...)

To get all my comments together in one place, congrats on the ... was it 'bun in the oven'? *grin* where do these phrases come from?
