Always waitin' for something...

Today it's the dryer repairman. I have a service window between 8:00 AM and 12:00 PM which means, since I got up early, he'll be here at 11:59 OR I'll get a call at 11:59 that he's running late.

Unfortunately I cannot live without a dryer. The amount of laundry I do is staggering [which is probably why the dryer went ca-chunk, ca-chunk, thunk...ahhh thunk on Sunday night and then stopped working] and without drilling holes in various structures in my yard, I don't have any place to hang an emergency clothesline, so the bathrooms are full of towels hanging on hangers. Do you know how long it takes for a towel to air dry? FOR.EVER.

So here I sit, watching the street, twiddling my thumbs and dreaming of the moment I can pull a nice, fluffy warm towel out of the dryer.

8:39 AM UPDATE: I spoke too soon. The repairman came at 8:15, told me the dryer belt was brken, shredded was more like it, and that it could take four days or so to get a replacement. AAAAAGHHG! So I'm off to my Mom's to do some essential laundry.

Well, at least they didn't keep you waiting around all day.

Now let's hope he orders the correct parts!
