Van A/C Went Out and My Washer Broke This Week . . .

Ugh, when it rains, it pours, as they say.

This week the air conditioning in my van started being temperamental . . . and then completely went out on a one-hour drive across town. On the day that it was 102 outside. Yep, that's my luck right there.

Then I was working on household chores trying to get caught up when I thought I heard my children causing a terrible ruckus in the other room. Of course, I charged in ready to put someone in their place when I realized the noise was coming from the laundry room and not the upstairs area. It was my washing machine - on the spin cycle, but not spinning. Instead there was some sort of loud rattling noise. So with a load full of white clothes and bleach water, my washing machine was officially broken. I had to wring out the clothes by hand to get them into the dryer. 

{{SIGH}}

Don't you wish there was an easy, simple fix when this kind of thing happens. What do you do?

I typically:
  • get really aggravated at being put out
  • gripe to my husband
  • hope my husband's handy man skills will save the day
  • thank God for a bunch of rain and a pile of clean clothes
  • start looking for replacements
Not such a fun process though, most definitely when it happens twice in the same week.
But today I was contacted by a company that could very well alleviate these concerns on the household appliance side of things. I was offered a 6 month trial of Equity Lock in order to review it for you . . . couldn't have been better timing!
