Need to vent

Disregard this unless you like living others' misery vicariously....

Ugh! I just got a brand new comforter set with decorative pillows, shams & bed skirt b/c our sheets were fine, but some of the other things, esp. the comforters were getting worn. I have very sensitive skin, so I try to wash everything new in my dye & fragrance-free detergent before I wear/use it. Well, the washer clearly couldn't handle the comforter & pillows at the same time. I should have known better!
So, yeah, my whole laundry room got flooded, the comforter & one of the pillows are sporting new rips & everything but the shams & bed skirt wiped out all the gunk that was in the top of my washer... so the washer's cleaner than it's been in a while, but my brand new stuff now is in dire need of washing & I'm afraid to wash them, mostly because the water splashed on the plugs for the washer & dryer. Hopefully, once everything dries, I can try again... one at a time... and it'll just be that it was overfull & not an actual leak or anything like that... because we can't begin to afford a new washer. We just replaced our back doors & not long ago, our fridge, and didn't really have the extra money for those...
I've been seeing a number of doctors for various things... I'm thinking I need to put off some of them now until we actually have money for them. At least my glasses Rx didn't change so I can cont. to get as much use as I can out of my current glasses.
I am so not feeling ready for this craft show coming up... Idk... I'm going to quit whining & go get a shower.

  1. Well, I feel kinda dumb having vented about all that. The washer's fine, I'd just overloaded it. almost as soon as I posted it I thought of so many other things that we have going right for us that others don't & put in perspective how lucky we are... but my hubby does get me worried about the money all the time, even though we have WAAAY less debt than the average American...
