Finally... the torture has come to an end!

Okay, so I admit it. I have been spoiled by the ability to do laundry in my own home, when I need to and when I want to. I didn't realize, however, that I was spoiled in this way until our washing machine was put out of commission for.... prepare yourself for this number, people... FIVE WEEKS!!!! The transmission went bad (yes, really... the transmission) due to the failure of a couple of bearings. Needless to say, this wasn't an inexpensive repair, but it was still significantly less than replacing the machine, so we made the decision to save a few hundred bucks and have it fixed. I'm not going to go into detail about why it took so long... I'm just going to say that the repairman didn't show on three separate occasions, our phone calls were only sometimes returned, and the company I chose to do our repair just plain blows. Now that our machine is back in our possesion and functioning properly, I will begin my duty of posting not-so-glowing company reviews and calling the better business bureau. In the meantime, however, here's a picture of our new and improved washing machine. I love you, washing machine! I will never take you for granted again!

And here's an updated belly shot at 39 weeks. If you think I look tired, you would be correct... but at least I have my washing machine! :)


  1. Wow, that's an impressive belly, Baby mine..Now go to bed and get some sleep........if you can!
    Congrats to getting the washer back...FINALLY!! She looks happy to be home.

  2. Funny! I get the title of your post on my Google Reader before I see your post and I was a little confused about what you were posting about. I knew that Isaac hadn't come yet but the post title made me wonder anyway! :) (Was that intentional?) BTW, sleep deprivation can make you more emotional too - try to get comfortable somewhere (ANYWHERE!) and get as much sleep as you can. Love you (Brandon and Isaac too).

  3. LOVE IT!! I'm so sorry you had to go so long w/o a washer! I know it was torture!!

    Anyway, your preggo pics are ABSOLUTELY adorable!! You look beautiful! It's been a while since I caught up with your blogging, and I've got to say... your earlier boyfriend post brought tears to my eyes. I can't tell you how much love I see in both of you together, and I just can't wait to see you as parents!!

    Hope to see you, Brandon, and BABY ISAAC soon!!! Love ya! :)
