Happy first day of Spring!

LOL a bit late the day is just about over here but I have no internet so had to wait until I could get to someone that does.

Long story on the no internet but here's the short version. Washer broke so we bought a new washer and dryer over the weekend. We then decided to move the washer and dryer into the computer room and move my computer/desk in the kitchen. Well water pipe broke in the basement so no water for a day, washer is still not hooked up but dryer works great! Now we have to figure out how we can run phone all the way across the basement to the kitchen so I can hook back up and get online. So not sure when that'll be or when I'll get back on the board, soon I hope!

Hope you all are having a great Spring day! Very nice here, in the 70's here today and sunny, Thursday going up to 80. LOL but looks like rainy cool weather for the weekend...

Hope you get everything working again soon.

lt's been raining or sprinkling all day here. Feels more like we're finally getting winter instead of spring which we had earlier this year. Very confusing weather.

I was going to make a wise crack about Spring but read your other woes. Gee I get back and you go offline! GRIN....was it something I said?????

Only kidding. I hope you get it worked out soon. I got tired of all the cords here so went wireless. I would hate to have to change back. Good luck.

Its my spring break from college (officially starts next week, but I don't have classes anymore) and we've got some good weather coming up for the next couple days, not sure about next week though.

We just recently got a new washer and dryer too and had our own adventures with them. Washer is noisy and a few other things that we don't like (not really deal breakers, but all together yes) and the dryer was taking 2.5 hours or longer to dry a load of socks (my whites are mostly socks, lol) so that's a no go. And we discovered a leak in the pipes leading to and from the washer, there went over $100 to a plumber to fix that :( But leak is fixed now and we've got a new new washer and dryer coming to replace the broken new ones.

Wow gee buying new washers and dryers is not sounding good. I had planned to replace mine with a joint machine, but the two units never die at the same time, so looks like I am stuck with the two. I don't remember any drama when I got them except that I was not strong enough to get the pipes connected, but luckily I grabbed a nice neighbour and he did it then added a clamp, and it cost me nothing. The only thing I don't like about my front loader washer is that it takes so long to wash, but it sure does a good job. I sure hope when your new appliances arrive you have no more dramas. Good luck.

Rofl...well the laundry basket here is full, and I looked outside and saw sun. Thought about it for a split second, but it is 6C, so the thought passes fast. The mornings are suddenly cold. Daylight savings will soon be over..boo hoo. Did enjoy sitting outside yesterday at the end of the day. Gee summer never arrived......do yu think it is too much to ask winter to stay away too?....

Instead I have decided on laundry tomorrow and today reading food magazines and cooking and planning the weeks dinners. Oh and throw in some x-stitch and playing a game on the iPad. Sounds like heaven, but the day is early yet...give it time to change. Lol
