Thanks to our friends, our baby will have clean underwear. We scoped out washers and dryers and finally got a great deal on a Kenmore front loader set from the Sears outlet store (though the first washer we picked up was broken, which was a drag). Check it out if you need appliances, we got the washer and dryer for the price of the washer alone. Grace helped me build a pedestal (a savings of $120) and Ryan picked it up in his van (a savings of $150, and Ken and Kim let us take the minivan to exchange the washer) so everything worked out great. Thanks again to everyone. I know I’ve been slow lately with the posts, things are kinda nuts, but we’ll be back to full strength soon.
