What to do?

So what's my washing machine doing sitting on the back porch?
Especially when there is all this laundry is piling up in the house? {this is only about half of it, too!}

Yes, my washing machine is broken again! This is the second time this year alone. And earlier this year I went an entire MONTH without a working dryer. My husband has ordered the part for the washing machine and will get it fixed on Saturday, but the piles are growing too big. Here is the debate in my head: drive 18 miles (round trip) to my parents' house to spend 3 to 4 hours doing laundry (their washing machine takes 50 minutes per load-yuck!) -- OR -- drive 4 miles round trip and spend about $10 to use the laundromat? This would only take 1 hour of my time and I could bring the clothes home to dry in my own dryer. I am having a hard time deciding.
What do you think?

Scripture of the Day: James 2:12


  1. If you like your parents, I say go hang out with them for awhile and enjoy it. But then I live across the street from mine. ;)

  2. I say laundromat. I love the idea of ALL of it getting washed, dried, and folded in a relatively short time. Then again, a visit with your parents sounds nice too...would they be home?

  3. I ended up going to my parents', but they were not there. They both were at work. The reason I went, though, was because my dad called and asked if I would be willing to help him pick up his car and he needed a ride. So I helped out. I got 3 loads done there. Still have 3 more to do though.

  4. ummm, throw them out and go buy a new wardrobe.

    I'd probably opt for the parents house.

    I am so sorry.
