The Maytag Man

The appliance repair man was just here AGAIN. In the not quite 4 years we have lived in this house he has been here eight or nine times and is coming back again to hit a double, both the refrigerator and dryer are struggling. The fridge is not working at all and the dryer is on cycle three in attempt to dry a quilt and some sheets. Why is stuff today built so cheaply and costs a small fortune to fix, like a $300.00 computer board. Why do they need computers in them? Our stove is two years old and needs to be checked out again, third time because is smells like gas for 5 minutes after you turn on the oven- lovely huh? At least the store called and asked if I wanted to extent our warranty on the piece o'garbage so that should be covered. We, the hubby and I, are in agreement that we will never purchase a Maytag appliance again. Well the LORD was merciful and we only had to shell out 150 bucks to get both appliances fixed. The dryer just needed to be properly vented to the outside. He said the flexible hose we had on the back starts a lot of house fires so I'm glad it's fixed properly. Well I'm off to reload the fridge and bake some thawed chicken to throw back into the freezer.

You and your appliances! I can not believe how many times it has broken on you. Ridiculous!!!

Your planet wallies is a good idea. I didn't even know they had such a thing. Definitely would have saved me a lot of time what with tracing and SLOOOOWLY painting. Oh well. It was fun and Ambry loved watching me paint them.
