Green Nelly!

We are proud to introduce you to Green Nelly, our new Ford Escort :) Mark has stated we don't need a name for our car, but I couldn't help it! I thought of Green Nelly and it has stuck. Hopefully she'll be good to us. This picture also has our building door directly behind the car.

Yesterday I finally undertook the task of opening our old washer that was full of water, catching what I could in a bucket, and then scooping the rest out with a cup. I guess it was less painful than I thought it would be. The thought of a new washer was good motivation!

Today the new washer arrived. I felt bad for the guys who had to carry it up 4 flights of steps, but at least they are half the size of the ones in the States (I didn't say that to them, though!). I have done one load that went on for over 2 hours. Guess I won't use that cycle any more! I hope I can get a couple more loads done tonight in an attempt to put a dent in the dirty laundry.

Yay for doing laundry! That reminds me...

Looks like you have the same exact washer that we do! Most the cycles run about 2-1/2 hours. The "Mini 30" cycle usually works just fine for most things, however, and only takes 30 minutes.

But watch out for the "spinning" cycle! You definitely have to have the PERFECT size load (not too big, not too small) or it won't spin your clothes out!! Happens ALL the time to me. Very frustrating.

Anyway, I'm publishing this "anonymously" since my google/blogger account is "touch & go" right now for some reason. :-(

Rachel,
Glad you found us :)I haven't tried a "Mini 30" cycle yet but this new washer does have that so I might have to try it when I'm in a hurry!

Hey Rachel!

No other name would fit your car! Don't feel bad, I'm also into naming cars. My mazda's name is "Wilma" and our van's name is the "silver bullet." We miss you all and love reading your blog.
