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!

Oh please. If I get the wrong part I WILL go postal. Totally.
