May the laundry gods bless me

Have I mentioned I have serious capacity envy?

For the past six months or so, I have become extremely disillusioned with my washer and dryer. We bought them 10 years ago, and they have...MAYBE 2.5 cubic feet capacity. VERY small.

I want the Maytag Neptune washer and dryer. Front load, so they are much more efficient with water and get things much dryer at the end of the wash. This makes it cheaper to wash, and brings dryer time down to equal the wash time. The washer is a whopping 3.81 cubic and the dryer is 7.something. The WASHER will take a king sized comforter, or something like 15 pairs of jeans. AMAZING!

I must have these, but they are like $1000 for the washer and $800 for the dryer. I'm going to have to save up and wait on some good sales. Maybe get a card somewhere (even though I saved up for them) to try to get an additional 10% off the cost.

But I WILL have a new washer and dryer for myself. They will be mine. Oh yes, they will be mine.

They're well worth it, though the "comforter" dryer setting usually takes two cycles to sufficiently dry a full- or queen-size comforter in the electric dryer model Vogon has (the MDE7500A).

It would still be an improvement from what I have now. I can hardly dry a twin size comforter in our dryer, and then only with about a cycle and a half. I can't put anything in the wash with a twin size comforter or it gets way off balance. As it is, it has to be SHOVED down in there.

I HATE doing laundry and I end up having to do about 5 or 6 loads a week. It's too much time and too much water.

Speaking of, it's time to go get a load out of the washer now.

Oh, and I usually have stand mixer envy.

I have a serious KitchenAid mixer (6-quart bowl, 575-watt motor) but every time I see the Viking mixers (5-quart bowl and 800-watt motor, 7-quart bowl and 1000-watt motor) in the Baker's Catalogue I turn green with envy. It's very silly since I've yet to throw anything at my mixer that's strained its motor in the least.

I've always loved seeing those, but I would never use them. Heck, I hardly ever use my hand mixer. Maybe 2-3 times a year.
