Project 365 Day 124 - May 3rd
Those who know me know that I HATE doing laundry. I would rather scrub toilets than deal with doing laundry. Okay... let me clarify. I don't mind the getting everything into the washing machine. I don't mind the moving everything from the washer to the dryer. The part that I despise it folding and putting away everything. Today, my distaste for doing laundry became even more solidified.
I had one load washed and in the dryer, one load going in the washer, and 3 loads ready to go in right behind those. When I went to pull the first load out of the dryer, I realized they were still damp. I tried to turn the dryer back on, which I have to do occasionally, and it wouldn't work. I could hear the timer ticking, but the dryer itself wasn't doing anything otherwise. After Tony got home from work, he pulled the dryer apart and discovered that the little piece you see above was no longer working. I'm not sure exactly what it's called, but basically it keeps the dryer from overheating... and because it is no longer working, the dryer won't work at all. UGH! Now I have to pay $35.00 for a new one, plus the shipping, plus wait for it to arrive. And in the meantime, I am hanging shirts to dry and Tony is taking everything else to the laundry room at our apartment complex to dry it. Grrrrr.... at least it's still cheaper than buying a new dryer altogether.
