    Congratulations! There is nothing like the independence of being able to wash your dirty laundry in the middle of the night, during commercials, in between margaritas, whatever!! I hated laundromats when I was younger - and I mean HATED them. There was one near my house that you could pay by the pound to wash and dry your stuff. I would pay them the extra money quite happily and drop my clothing off on the way to the beach!! Alas, now that I have my own machine, I have a much harder time getting other people to wash, dry and fold it while I hang out at the coast. Go figure...

    When my older sister finally got her washer and dryer (years ago, but she was about your age), she had been suing laundromats. She continued "paying" to use the washer and dryer, tucking away those quarters. She soon had a stash of mad money that she'd use to splurge on herself once in awhile. Anyhow, congratulations. More time to sew!

    Not dumb at all! I was so excited when we moved from an apartment to a condo because I had my very own W/D and I could do laundry whenever I wanted. I still love those machines now that we're in a house. They're my favorite things, second only to air-conditioning (we're in FL)-lol!

    I just got a new washer because my old one the timer that made it change from wash to spin to rinse etc was broke. So I had to wear a timer around my neck so I could know when to go back out in the garage and advance the washer. If I forgot, the washer would go on forever. Ask me how I know. I'm physically challenged so that was a pain.

    It is wonderful. I was so happy when we moved from an apartment to our first home (a condo) and we had our own washer and dryer. No waiting any more for open machines, lugging laundry in all sorts of weather, or sitting in the laundromat killing time between loads.

    For years, cold weather, hot weather, cloudy or sunny, I had to dry my clothes outside because I had a washer but no connection for a dryer on our farm. After a few years of this, I mutinied and got a dryer. What a difference a dryer made. Happy day!

    Call it being excited or gratitude - of course you are excited! I see in your avatar you have a baby and Baby produces lots of laundry. Now you can stay home. I'm happy for you!

    It's a definite step up, and thanks for posting it because it made me remember getting my own first washer and dryer many years ago. It felt as if I'd entered a new phase of my life. I really was because at the time our first baby was about to arrive and the laundry equipment was needed for baby things. The first baby is 38 now and washing quite a few baby clothes himself these days.

    Excited for you too. I remember one year I made night gowns & pj's for my kids for Christmas. My first trip to the laundromat with them, the washer leaked oil all over them. I was just sick about it. Wasn't long after that I got my first washer, but had to wait for the dryer.
