Laundry Dreams

For the past 4 years or so, I've been using our apartments coin-op machines. Not neccesarily a bad thing, if you have tons of quarters to put toward it, but after a few years of this and having three children and a husband that works out...well, you know the piles of laundry grow. I wasn't doing too bad keeping up with the laundry and then, I had Liam. Suddenly the piles seem like Mount Everest without an oxygen tank! I am so behind it isn't funny! Do you know how many times a baby needs to be changed a day? Way too many!

Well, enter a dream come true....

This weekend my parents moved apartments. They have had an apartment washer-dryer for quite a few years now. They are small but hardy little things. Well, a few weeks back as my Mom and I talked, she mentioned that she might give me these machines. Well, I must say, I was quite excited and hoped that she might. Although my parents are not moving somewhere that has a machine in the apartment, they decided to pass these machines on to me. Mom said she feels it would be more helpful to me with three kiddos(she has been there herself), than for them. Wow!

So, as they moved this weekend, my hubby and I helped them and at the end of the Dad took the machines over with my hubby and they are now sitting prettily in my kitchen awaiting their first run. I'm so excited, I can hardly express my feelings of gratitude. I know that my parents will now be paying for the laundry service, but what a generous and helpful gift they have given me...they are great parents!

I haven't used them yet...but tomorrow morning, I will take on my Mount Everest...and it wont be without oxygen!

Thanks Mom and have just taken a load off of my shoulders:-) and blessed me with a very precious gift.

Congratulations!!! What a wonderful kind gift. I don't know how you did it without your own machines and three little ones :) Enjoy the smell of fresh clean laundry today!
