I’m at home today, working while the kids are at a birthday party. The washing machine is also working through many loads of post-camp and pre-trip laundry, and is not happy. Sounds like it’s about to explode, in fact.

Since we bought it when we moved into the house, it has had a few years’ service. But it makes of wonder what other appliances we might need to replace sooner rather than later. Damn modern life…
