I am thankful for my washer and dryer. There was a brief moment (three weeks–before we had kids) when our dryer broke and we had to take clothes to the laundromat. It was time consuming and boring. But I understand that some people just do that, every week, and it’s their only option. So I’m very grateful for the washer and dryer in my basement that I can turn on while doing other things or as I’m going to bed. And even though they don’t match and sometimes my dryer makes a funny scraping noise, they get the job done.
