Big Spenders

Yesterday was somewhat exciting. Well, Monday's are always exciting because they are Jimmy's day off! YEA!!! However, this Monday was particularly interesting because we have officially become adults! Gone are the days of coin operated laundry gone forever are the days of old apartment microwaves that only kinda get things warm, yes, you've guess correctly we bought APPLIANCES!!! We've been saving for a while to get these now necessary conveniences but actually spending the money came with mixed feelings. We're excited to use them but HOLY MOLY were they expensive!! YIKES!!! We did go a little more on the W/D and got the front loaders (you know, the spiffy high efficiency ones) Jimmy sat down and figured out (based on the cost of a k/w hour and the price of a gallon of heated water) That if we only did two loads a week for the next year, we would save over $90 bucks! In four years that makes up the difference in price between these ones and the cheap top loaders. (impressive huh!?!) In all the fun though, this is a big step in life. We are grown-up married people moving into a house and we own major appliances. Ah what a strange new world this is.
