It was at the end of last weekend when my dryer stopped blowing hot air. The washer had been acting funny for a while but hadn't given up the ghost completely yet. The very nice men from Lowe's just left after setting up my brand new high capacity front loaders. Guess what I'll be doing for the rest of the day? I know that there have been a lot of advances in laundry technology since I got mine soon after moving to Florida. I think I'd better read the manual. I'm thinking of making a counter top of sorts to set along the top to use for ironing and folding. Kurt had the kids make me a new PVC hamper to slide under the counter. I just need to make a muslin liner for it and I'll be all set.
