I have done laundry almost every day since we got the washer and dryer. It has been great.
In other news, I was working a pretty crazy job during 2008, and we just wrapped. Sunday night felt a bit like New Year's Eve for me, and this week has been all about the recovery. I've had a lot of mixed emotions about the job ending — amazement that my co-workers and I were able to do what we did, gratitude that it all worked and no one died (I'm only half joking!), and sadness that it has all ended so quickly.
Part of my recovery is planning a vacation to Sydney for three weeks. We will be exchanging our condo with some lovely folks from Australia who wanted to ski. We need some serious beach time, so it all works out! And, I suppose that this is mildly house-related in that our renovations have made it possible for us to exchange because our place catches people's eyes.
Finally, we're still working on that lot, so stay tuned. And keep a good thought for us in the meantime.
