Yes, we are doing laundry today. Or trying to do laundry. The agitator has been giving out, and I think the clothes would be washed more thoroughly if I stood there and moved the water by hand. I told my husband earlier today that I think we are going to have to call the repair man this time, and he told me no, we'll just get a new washer. After all, this one is at least ten years old, and a family of six is hard on a washer. But I couldn't help looking inside it to see what I could see. And after a little bit of exploration on the internet, I found out that the cause of the wimpy agitator is simply worn out agitator "dogs", very easy to reach. The replacements cost less than $10, and the difficulty of the repair is rated SIMPLE. **huge grin** Super Washer Repair Woman strikes again, saving her dear man hundreds of dollars. (That will help make up for my expenditures in the chocolate department.)
I think I missed my calling. Maybe I should have been Mrs. Maytag.
