Talk about a banner day.
For the first time in six years, we have a washer and dryer.
It was a close thing too. We knew it would be soon, so Sarah didn't want to go to the laundry mat. Had she gone on that last day it would have probably been a five-figure bill. The truck might not have been able to haul all the quarters.
I was literally down to souvenir silk boxers I bought when I was in Hong Kong in the navy. (Don't judge me.)
But then we hooked them up, and they worked. And the floor didn't even cave in or anything. What seems like a small thing can often be a major victory.

When we told the kids we were going to move into a permanent house and have a washer and dryer of our own, Max asked if it would still need quarters.
No Max. You might just get to use quarters in the trinket machines at the grocery store.
When you are doing laundry exclusively at a laundry mat, quarters take on a special value. Now they can just be quarters again.
Of course, the cold water supply was where we had tapped into the water for the RV. We had to disconnect that and have no water in IRV anymore, but don't bog me down with details. I have to replace a spigot tomorrow to get water turned back on.
Always one more thing.
