We definitely had buyer's remorse after the purchase of our washer and dryer a few years ago. The washer was especially horrible - to the point that we had to remove it from the laundry room and use an old one that had belonged to Andrew's Grandpa. We've been making due but just the other day had been thinking that we needed to work a new washer into the budget. Yesterday, a co-worker of Andrew's sent out an e-mail that he had a front load washer that was in good condition that he wanted to give away. He said if several people were interested, there would be a raffle. Andrew quickly put our name in the hat. Today we learned that no raffle was necessary and the washer is ours. We feel incredibly blessed! It meets a need for us and will give us a little more time before biting the bullet and purchasing a new washer and dryer. Amazing to see the little ways that God provides for our needs!
In other notes...my brothers came and entertained the boys while I worked on things yesterday which was awesome! They returned with one of their friends in the evening to help move some furniture for us which was so helpful. And some good friends from church are keeping all three of the boys today so I can work on the favors and the carpets can be cleaned. Yesterday, I also had a chance to get my eyebrows threaded and my hair trimmed and colored - yay! The number for brunch is closer to 50 so I still have much to do but I'm excited for the weekend!
Let's get this party started!
