Winter in New Hampshire is not for wimps.
Today the temperature hovered around 18 degrees and by noontime my kitchen sink pipes were frozen solid. Since I didn't feel like going upstairs and getting the hair dryer and then standing in the cobwebby silence of our Goonies basement defrosting the pipes for 20 minutes, I had to schlep water from the mudroom sink.
And about that sink? It is currently filled to the brim with sopping wet clothes that I had to remove from the BROKEN washing machine. Given the fact that I do about 3 loads of wash a day, and the machine was old when we moved in here three years ago, it was inevitable that the damn thing would shit the bed.
The only one happy about the situation was the guy at Sears who made the sale.
Nothing like buying major household appliances on credit because no one here has a paying job.....hopefully by the time our 12 months of free credit are up, GreenPoma.com will be generating a little income for the Ellinwoods.
