So I was planning on buying the wonder wash in the next pay period. The hubs thought it was a really great idea, but says that he doesnt think we should consider ditching the full size machine just yet.
Fast forward to yesterday. The kids and I were feeling a bit stir crazy, and decided to to walk around downtown. We stopped by our favorite thrift store, where Gavin bought Trinity and I some birthday gifts (more on that later). I was hunting specifically for a giant pickle jar (which I found for 1.50) for my kombucha to brew in. I had 20.00 of “crazy money” that my dh had given me, but I was trying to hold on to as much of it as possible. So I head to the back of the store, looking at various kitchen appliances, when low and behold, I spot it. A Wonder wash, for $7. 50!! No one can tell me that God doesn’t do things just to make us smile. He seems to do these types of things for me with the most obscure items too. The 20$ butter crock I wanted so desperately that I found for a quarter at a yard sale a week later, the pizza oven I found 2 days after reading about Laine’s pizza oven (www.lainesletters.com), The now retired vintage set of china including the butter dish that broke a week before that completes my collection.
And of all things, a wonder wash.
I love the thing by the way. It is particularly wonderful for the girls more delicate dresses. It gives you a good workout too. Love that the kids can do their own laundry.The wringing out is a bit exhausting after about five loads, but the hanging to dry is still the toughest part, lol. I love my clothes line, but when its a bazillion degrees outside, its easy to wear out quickly.
I have so much to talk about and very little time. It’s been a few days since I was able to blog, and I’ve stored up so much stuff in my head, lol… This was on the top of my list, but I will be posting some fun stuff (hopefully today) about our new fridge, homeschooling, and a new home tour. Lots of changes around here.
