Something fantastic has happened in the Stammen House. We have a new washer and dryer! When we moved in 4 years ago we purchased a (very) used washer and dyer from Craigslist. It worked for what we needed at the time, relatively small loads on an infrequent basis. Now with a family of 5 it wasn't holding up too well. The dryer smelled like it was smoking if it was put on High Heat, so we had to run it on Low Heat - which meant running it twice in order to dry half a load - which meant washing a very small load - which doubled my laundry duties. Insane. Now that we have new ones that are glorious I don't know what to do with my spare time...finish other projects...exercise...watch TV...play outside with the kids...post more...the possibilities are endless.
