First, the bad news. The dryer, it is dead. The repair guy came this morning and said that the motor is going out. It's fixable . . . for $427. Considering that it's a 10-year-old dryer, probably not worth it. So now I'm on a quest for a new washer/dryer set.
But in other semi-laundry related news . . . .
Our laundry room a pretty large for a laundry room, about the size of a small bedroom. It also serves as a play area and storage for some of Sass's toys. And books. Lawzy, the books!
My children draw. And draw and draw and draw. Between the two of them, they've probably used up a small forest. So Skeeter and decided that we'd give them a wall and save a few (read: many!) trees. We painted a dry erase board on a large part of one of the walls in the room, and it's been a huge hit with the children!
And now, the photos:
Thank heavens I'm planning to repaint the whole room anyway because Skeeter decided to paint that extra rectangle. Crazy man. Anyway, when I repaint the rest of the room, I'll probably buy some sort of wainscoting to give the area dry erase area a frame.
I see that my birthday/anniversary calendar is still on February. Oops.
And just to show you the rest of the room:
The door goes out to the carport, and it's rarely used. But for when we do, the little bins are easily movable though, and not at all heavy.
It's been an excellent use of the space for us!
