Okay. My mother-in-law is coming. For a week. On Saturday. With her husband. And our niece.
We are busy getting ready.
Then, yesterday, this happened:
Yes, we decided to buy a new matching washer and dryer (instead of spending $750 to fix the old washing machine). They were installed a month ago. I removed some clothes and they all smelled like smoke. I looked into the dryer and the back was scorched. Excellent!
Thankfully, Costco is switching it out. But it will be after my mother-in-law comes. I am going to have a lot of laundry with three extra guests. And I have no way to do it.
Insert panic attack here.
I ripped my outdoor cushion in half (on purpose) to try to wash the sap out, that had leaked onto it. Now, I have to sew it back together. And the stains are still there. Fabulous!
But I have to admit. The view was beautiful, as I worked on the cushion. And the peace of the day winding down was soothing.
Does anyone know how to get sap out? I have tried carpet cleaner, and washing it. Any suggestions that do not involve the washing machine? My fingers can’t take resewing this.
I am losing my mind! Losing my mind, peeps! Can you see the future? I can’t. It’s littered with smoke and sap.
We decided to runaway for the day. This is a picture from an hour ago. It makes it all better. How can you be sad here? Can you guess where I am?
