Ok, so today did not quite go according to plan. I had planned to spend some time putting together an outfit post from this weekend that I am very excited to share with you guys…but while I was editing photos, my washing machine became possessed by an evil force and spewed water all over my apartment floor, until I managed to turn the valves off. It all happened so fast! Haha. And while I was trying to call maintenance, the drum that was still full of water, emptied itself Niagara Falls style all over the floor too. Jeepers! So, instead of writing a fun blog post, I had the pleasure of cleaning up after my demonic washing machine (and I am now sitting on my couch with a glass of wine glaring at the stupid thing).
Which is actually kind of funny, because I was SO excited about that washing machine. I had never had my own washing machine or dryer. It’s always been a community washing machine, or I had to go to a laundromat. But oh well! Appliances break! I just needed to vent for a moment because I didn’t have anyone to complain to about it (other than my husband…who was weirdly calm about the situation). So, thanks for listening (or I am mean reading)! And a big shout out to my new next door neighbor who came over to make sure I was ok (and brought more towels)…after he saw water creeping into the hallway from my apartment! Haha!
So, thank goodness I had this lovely Links à la Mode post to share today instead! Haha. It’s been a bit since I’ve had a post featured, and I’m quite excited my “Blending In” post was selected to be featured this week!
