I never realized how thankful I was.... Little Richard's mommie! Due July 12 (boy); 1 child; Seneca, South Carolina 4430 posts

for just certain material things, like appliances. I never really realized how thankful I should have been for my dryer and then it broke last month and we were waiting until we had enough money for one to get another. I had to hang dry clothes out and I ended up getting way to behind on laundry especially since only 1 load could be done a day and it seemed to be raining almost everyday so some days I didn't even get to wash clothes. We finally got another dryer today! And we've done 3 loads in a few hours! I am not going to take it for granted anymore. Line drying clothes really sucks to me, because I HATE the way they feel when they are done!

I live my sheets and towels to be lined dry, but no way in this heat!

I live down near the anderson area and it's been raining like crazy! I felt as though it's never going to stop. I just really hate the way towels feel when they are line dryed, and I can't stand my shirts. They always feel rough. I just really prefer dryer heat. I love washing sheets and stuff and as soon as I get them dryed and put back on my bed, after a nice hot shower laying down on them is like heaven!

You could always find a nice laundry Matt, although it costs a fortune!

You appreciate things a lot more when you've gone through a house fire, didn't get paid, slept on an air mattress and a futon your entire pregnancy.

I've had to use a laundromat for the past 6 months, and I will be soooo happy when we can afford a washer and dryer!

I've gone through hard times, not quite like that. I just realize that I should be more thankful for the little things in life, instead of taking things for granted. I couldn't have imagined going through that during my pregnancy, if you had to I'm so sorry that you did. I could only imagine. I just am extremely more thankful for little things now than I was, even though materials don't really matter!

Yes, finally! I am so excited about it too. I know it's not the greatest one in the world but atm it's perfect for it, the old dryer was like a dryer from the 80's so no wonder it broke!

Oh I would've but they do cost a fortune! I've had to use one in the past when the foster family I lived with had the same problem and we went and oh my gosh we had to wash 5 kids worth, and two adults. I was thinking the whole time it was sooooo expensive! I just figured saving the money vs going to the laundry matt was better. It didn't help that we went through a lice epidemic when it happened so I had to bad up almost everything except for a few select pieces of clothing and finally I can take it all out and wash it even though everything should have been dead for over a month now. I didn't want to take my chances!

I know that has to suck! We got the cheapest one we could that was new from Lowes it was a little over 300. Which is still expensive, but hopefully it will last at least 20 years lol.

I agree! I know the whole time I was younger even though I had a bed to sleep in, I just hated it since it wasn't my own bed that I could call my own, I lived with foster families. But now that I am out of DSS and I have my own bed to call my own, I appreciate it so much. It feels nice being able to say it's mine as I can imagine you feel!

Our fridge broke last year. That has to be the fucking shittiest appliance to have go.



It sucked, our light burned out so I opened a dark fridge and thought nothing of it. Poured Lily milk and gave her a glass. She took a drink and yelled "OH MY GOD!" and ran to the sink gagging. The milk was sour, I am all "What the fuck?" Poured out the milk and then a chunk came out. I thought nothing of it. I hate milk so I didnt test the temp or anything. I just thought the milk went bad. Then I went to get her a waffle and they weren't frozen, they were soft. I then realized... our fridge was gone. We lost ALL our food and the landlord covered some of it but not all (it's his fridge). We had an extra fridge that we had to get from storage but man we lost soooooo much food! And until we had a replacement fridge we realized just how much you rely on a fridge and it SUCKED.

That had to suck!



My fridge broke once, luckily I caught it in time and it was winter in Wisconsin so we just put everything in the snow. You don't know how much food u have until you have to clean all of it out!
