Lauren was at work, so Wally and I had to get ready for the new washing machine. There were twenty-four years of stuff under the dryer, but I didn’t get a proper before picture. Because the new washer didn’t have a reversible door, I had to swap the positions of our washing machine and dryer.
You can see the total amount of debris that was recovered. Speaking of recovered, I’m sure there must have been $2.17 worth of change in that pile, but neither Wally nor I were going to dig through it.
The movers knew what they were about. They had the professional version of Lauren’s fore-arm-forklifts. This one goes over your shoulders, so it’s even easier to lift things. The only real problem with it is that it only has one strap, so there is a little more balancing involved. On the other hand, what else are you going to do with your hands? Delivery cost $104, but I didn’t have to use fore-arm-forklifts, so it was well worth it.
Also included in the $104 was me just standing around while they lifted it on the pedestal, which I had completely forgotten about, and doing all of the setup. Lauren got the pedestal from their scratch and dent section. It’s pretty messed up on the side that no one is ever going to see.
The delivery people didn’t switch the door on the dryer for me, so I actually had to do something. There are 12 screws to take out and put back in to reverse the door –in case you were wondering.
The only thing left to do is to connect the washer to the internet, so I can do laundry online.
