Laundry day

For the past 5-7 weeks we've been coming to the laundry mat to do laundry. We had a washing machine at our rental that we purchased in August but at the end of December it quit working, right in the middle of a wash cycle.

We returned the washer to Costco and got our money back. Our new house we had just purchased came with a washer and dryer, so for a few weeks I was able to go over there to do laundry. But once we got ready to do tile we pulled the machines out and I was left with no way to do laundry.

We could have brought the washer to the rental, but the laundry room is down a level and in a tight spot. Jeremy didn't want to move it for just a few weeks. Plus I think something about the rental (the electrical) ruined our washer, because they had a newer washer there when we first moved in that they said we could have if we wanted to fix it.

So that's the long version of why we've been doing laundry at the laundry mat the last few weeks.

The awesomeness of doing laundry at the laundry mat is I can do a whole weeks worth of laundry in 2 hours--that even includes folding it.

I suggested to Jeremy that we should put 2 stackable washers and dryers at our new house so at least I can get laundry done twice as fast. Some day
I might actually do it.

Sneak peak

Our house is getting close to being done. Ready or not we are moving this weekend and there many little things left to do
Changing all light switches-half are done
Outlet to the island
Install plumbing fixtures
Put toilets back in
Doorknobs on
Lights up
Finish kitchen backsplash
Install mirrors
Put in shelving units in master closet
Finish stair railing
Clean out garage

The biggest hang up is the painter isn't done yet so a fair amount of those things we can't do until he's done, which won't be until Friday.

A picture of a before and after of the kitchen (although the after kitchen doesn't have the backsplash done).
