    The sad nook (and sadder checkbook)

    No washer and dryer. In the meantime, I sadly shake my head to the kind inquiries of neighbors to whom we bragged about adding the W/D combo months ago...

    We're stymied on a couple of things, both of which ultimately come back to the sad checkbook. Our power to this corner is a mere 110V, and the vast majority of washers and dryers require a minimum of 220V. The second is that we just don't have the wherewithal to purchase the W/D combo at the moment, so it's going to cost us in quarters instead.

    In the meantime, it remains a junk nook:

    I love that among the junk in your junk nook is a bottle of laundry detergent, as if to say, hey, we're going to at least TRY to get some of the intended use out of this area. :) It's nice foreshadowing.

    Just look at it this way: Once you do find a 110v w/d combo, you'll be glad that your infrastructure forced you to make such a green, utility-bill-slashing purchase. :)

    S'true...for twice as much as the regular stuff!

    And I like to think of the detergent and towels as an homage, too!
