We had planned to get a washing machine when we built the west wing of our house, which will include not only our bedroom and office, but also a laundry room. But we won’t get to that project for another couple of years, and so I hadn’t started to think of it. Hand washing is not something I mind doing at all, although it is more time consuming.
I used it for the first time the other day, and it felt wonderful and decadent. The kids were super excited and spent most of the cycle watching it spin.
