My hand-me-down washing machine of 20+ years finally died. So Sunday we went out and purchased a new Whirlpool set from a home improvement store.
1. I am so excited to have a BRAND NEW washer & dryer. This is such a blessing to us!
2. I am so tired of lugging to the laundry mat in this cold and stormy weather!
We were to have the set delivered today and I was planning to spend my day catching up on all the week's worth of laundry. I arrive home from bringing Leonard to his truck just at the start of the appointment window. The delivery truck is here already and blocking my driveway so I could not pull in.
The delivery men are worried about the truck and the driveway and the snow. Hmmm... We're in Upstate NY in January and have had light snow every night for days... This should not have been that shocking.
Anyway, they back the truck up and straight into the ditch. *sighs*
We are waiting for the tow truck. I had to leave my own truck on the opposite side street as I cannot get in my own driveway at all now. I went into the house to let the dogs out when the delivery man is coming down to the house. I can see he is hesitant and doesn't even want to approach the house. Turns out he is terrified of dogs. *sigh*
OK - the dryer is now damaged and cannot be delivered. The way our laundry room is set up, the dryer has to be installed before the washer. *sigh*
I told them I do not want the washer that was on the truck that went into the ditch. Hopefully tomorrow they will re-deliver a new set. Maybe then I can catch up on Mount Clothesmore that is growing every day...
