More Deliveries

Well today I am waiting for the delivery of my new washer and dryer. Thought I was all done waiting after the carpet and vinyl floor was installed and after our new handyman came by and did what I needed him to do, but then last Sunday, when I washed a load of sheets and towels, we discovered that our dryer was not working. It was spinning but it was not getting hot.
Ben used to delivery appliances about 40 years ago, so he did all the "checks" on it to see if he could figure out what the problem was. We decided the electronic ignition must have gone out on it.
I suggested we call a repairman, but Ben said that since our washer and dryer set was almost 12 years old, and the lifespan on washers and dryers is 10 to 15 years, we may as well just go buy a new set because we might get the dryer fixed and then the washer could go out.
We went over to Home Depot and we lucked out because they were having a 10% off sale for July 4th.
The delivery is supposed to be today between 11:30 am and 3:00 pm.


  1. Wow Kay, You are having Christmas EARLY this year... You are almost going to have a brand new home!!!!!!! Sometimes it is better just to buy new appliances than to repair them over and over...

    Glad you got a good deal at Home Depot.

  2. You just send them right on over here...mine are getting to the ' replace ' stage too. Congrats, did you get the front load set? A couple of the kids have them and swear by them. They Are nice but nice and pricey too...
