Guess where this is?






Yep, our house!!! This is so exciting to me. We (I) have been doing our laundry at our church buildings for the past two years and we just recently inherited this FABULOUS washer-dryer from my grandma. My ruggedly handsome and handy husband installed it last night. Unfortunatley, our camera was out of batteries for that scene... details in the next paragraph...

So, as you can tell, the space for the unit is a bit small... in order to hook it up not only did Matt have to cut a hole in our wall, but he spent about an hour confined behind the washer dryer to hook up all of the hoses and such. Then, he had to climb back over the top of it. This brought lots of laughter for us. Try to picture Matt squishing through the top of the opening and trying not to fall over onto the tile floor face first... he made it! and now I am on my 3rd load of laundry.

Thank you husband!
Thank you Grandma!
Thank you Kristen and Ross for letting us borrow your suburban to get it up here in the first place!

Thanks Jeff for helping move it into the house.
Thanks Shannon for supervising while Matt and Jeff moved it into the house.

I'm glad you held out until you got one for free. Way to not buy into the American "need" for convenience that so pushes our lives of excess.

Thanks daniel for getting eaten by mosquitoes while standing outside helping matt figure out how he should hook it up.

Yes! This has been a collaborative effort! I am also thankful to all my girl friends who humored me by walking between switching loads.
