I got a new washer and dryer delivered last night from Lowe's. I've had to cut my food budget down for a while, but it's so worth it. My old washer was so tiny that you couldn't wash more than a single sheet in it at a time. This one is big enough that I will only have to do one load of laundry a week instead of 6 or 7!!

Plus my old one was squealing and eating clothing, LOL. Adulthood: getting ridiculously excited about a new washer and dryer :hilarious::hilarious:
Hey, that's a huge thing! Congrats! I just ordered a new oven/stove. The dial for one of the burners keeps popping out and the plastic pin that holds it in place broke. I've superglued it twice in the last few weeks. Combined with how old it is (13 years) and other dials falling out, etc...it's time to replace it. It's served me well....it deserves a nice retirement.

Dang it! I was going to hire you for the $500!
but, but we stay at the cheapest hotel and drink at the cheapest bar;) Oh well. If you're going to do it get at least 3 quotes, double check licenses, insurance and references! The cheapest is not always the best;)

Adulthood can be weird. I get excited over new vacuums, and well, any new appliance.:hilarious: I also get excited about new smells from cleaners. I love citrus.:)
Yikes....I need a new vacuum, too....going shopping for that this weekend. Along with new shoes for DS. Again.

But I bought a slowcooker today!! Very excited....I've always wanted one, but they are sooooo expensive. Aldi had one on sale for 25 euros, so I bought it. Now I need to look for recipes.

Speaking of money grabs did you see the Illuminations dinner package for 85 per person. That's more than double what we paid for dinner there and we had a couple of drinks
The like is for the price you paid before. The pricing is ridiculous. I find those packages unnecessary anyway. Maybe if you are a once in a lifetime visitor, but for those of us who go too often, it's a waste of hard earned money.

May look at Bosch. Thanks!
We've had good luck with Bosch. My oven was a Bosch, and the new one I ordered is also a Bosch. Our vacuum is a Bosch and it still runs fine, but the hose attachment thing is broken and it's driving me nuts because it keeps coming off. But, we've also had that for 13+ years. And my in-laws have Bosch washer and dryer that are really nice. It's a good brand.

Oh, I miss my top loader washer. They don't have those here. All front loaders....it kills my back! And I miss being able to just throw something in if I missed a sock, or forgot something....just lift the lid and toss it in. You can't do that with a front loader.

Here's the new oven I ordered.

Sympathy like. I just had to get James sneakers AGAIN:banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:
Sympathy like. DS is bursting out of his like he's Hulk. I looked at has feet yesterday and I'm like....um....are those shoes too small?? His toes are coming out the top. And it hasn't been long since we bought these! They still look new other than the spots on the toes that are worn through. This is why I refuse to by expensive shoes. He's just going to grow out of them in a month anyway.

Isn't that also a line from "Oliver!", from the song "Consider Yourself?"
I think it is, yes! Never thought of that, but yeah!

I felt really bad when I left my old choir because I had been thinking of leaving for a long time, and we were at the break once and I was sitting with one of the Altos, and someone had just quit and this alto had said she was so shocked when this other person quit and was like "As long as YOU don't go....you're part of the furniture!" And I wasn't ready to announce yet that I was leaving...I wasn't sure that I was. But I felt so bad and didn't know what to say.

Yeah, I can't do that because I have to stack mine. There was no hookup in this house, so we had one installed in a large closet. There's no room to set them side by side. My in-laws had theirs on a platform, and it was SOOOO nice. When I win millions in the lottery, I will have a house built to my specifications....a spacious kitchen with 2 ovens, and a kitchen island and those ovens will be American sized. And then I will have a laundry room, with a platform for the washer and dryer, and some shelves for things like detergent, etc, and there will be a folding table, and there will be enough space to set the laundry basket down and still close the door!

Oh, and the oven is basically the updated version of the one I have now....which, the new one is actually cheaper. Back when I bought this one, it was top of the line by Dutch standards....it was the biggest one I could get here unless I got a professional one, and that wouldn't fit in my kitchen. But it was the ONLY one that had the wok burner on it and that made it an expensive feature, along with being the only one that was stainless steel. Now, it's not standard, but it's more common at least, and there's one that's one step down from this one, BUT this one is on sale for 50 euros less than that one, so why not get the nicer one? When we bought our old one, it was over 800 euros and was our most expensive appliance, but I just couldn't live without an oven that was big enough to cook a Turkey in, and you should see how small some of the ovens are here!!!
