So the good news is that we ordered a washer & dryer yesterday, and the nice store people said, "Would you like that delivered tomorrow?" Why yes, we would! (This saved us from our next stop, which was buying new towels and undergarments to get us through the week...)
The not quite so delightful news is that the store called...at 6:30 this morning...to confirm delivery. Have you ever heard of such a thing? I mean, I like doing laundry as much as the next person (okay, I LOVE doing laundry). But I'll take an extra hour of sleep over that any day of the week.
Gotta go--it's 8:08am and they're here!
