Life, Man

Yesterday, I gave my mother an appliance-related pep talk. Their fridge was making an ugly sound, but they managed to fix it, yay.)

Today, our dryer threw in the towel. Literally, as in, no matter how many times we ran the thing, the towels (and sheets, and shorts, and socks) refused to dry. Ruh-ro.

Enter Mr. Man. Trusty voltmeter in hand, he forged into the depths of the laundry room and after a valiant battle, emerged victorious. (For definitions of “victorious” that involve 3–5 day shipping of replacement parts.) The heating coil had snapped, so it was perhaps unsurprising that it could no longer perform its function.

So it was a no-writing day. Still, while the day was a bit of a wash (heh), it’s looking up!

I managed to spend the whole day learning things, yay, but nothing that’s ready to share right now. I did do a load of dishes in the new dishwasher. If you (like me) have wondered what exactly goes on in there, this video is for you.
