How we blew $1000 on a Monday night

Well, on

video games
a car

...a washer and dryer, naturally!

You guys, it was so exciting. I've never owned my own washer and dryer before! No more nasty laundry room with pissed-in dryers! No more quarters! No more randomly missing articles of clothing! No more setting the timer so I remember when to go change loads!

They're being delivered on Friday. But not to the fail apartment, oh no. The delivery will be to our much-anticipated base housing unit! We get our keys Friday morning and the movers will be here on Monday to transfer everything. Just six more nights here, and then no more mattress on the floor, no more cow water, no more digging through boxes to find my belongings!


I really hope base housing doesn't suck. (We've never seen the inside of a unit.)

It will be the ultimate gated community--armed guards! Fighter jets! Parachutes! Giant anchors randomly set out on grassy knolls!

(It is the Navy, after all. There's always an anchor.)

I dare my mother-in-law to find her way to our door now.

WOO HOO! I remember being SO FREAKIN' excited when I bought my very own washer/dryer. Crazy what adulthood does to us, eh? LOL

What April said. That first W/D purchase is a milestone. We installed coin slots on ours just for old time's sake.

Ah, I understand your excitement. I was there a few years ago before going BACK to no in-unit laundry. So nice.
