Well, 2012 is off to an inauspicious start.
I got back from Japan to a dead washing machine. It made some awful noises when I was washing clothes for my trip to Japan in September, but I just figured it was being unruly. Nope, it was in its death throes. It stopped working completely.
Then the water heater broke. It’s in the attic (a stupid idea), so it dumped a bunch of water into the upstairs bathroom. Ugh. What a mess.
Happy New Year!
