Last week the washing machine stopped working properly. We thought it wasn't spinning like it should because the towels were all wet. The repair man came out yesterday and it worked perfectly for him. Of course. He thought something might be caught in the drain, but the warranty wouldn't cover opening it up to pull it out. Isn't that nice?
So when it stopped draining tonight, Kansas Dad propped it up, took the front panel off and reached in. Ugh. That's love for you, right there.
While nursing may be great for mama's health and baby's health, it is not so great for the washing machine's health. He found two nursing pads stuck in there. (See, I was trying to be good to the environment, too.) Usually we put them in a little bag to wash and dry, but every once in a while one got by us. Twice, apparently. (In case you're wondering, these are the best ones I've tried. But use care when washing.)
I'm ever so glad to have the washing machine back again!
