Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

06/09/2005: Housework Hell...

Oh My Goodness...

If you're all wondering if I fell off the edge of the World this afternoon (measured by lack of posts) -- I can only plead Housework Deja Vu times ten.

Since I got home (days and days ago) from Memphis, my Maytag Neptune Washing Machine has been unable to work properly and wash and spin the clothes. I was promised "priority service" from my contract with SEARS, but what I've gotten is a date one week later (June 7th) to fix this beast. Following that mountain of laundry piled up that week - said Sears mechanic showed up - only to tell me he did not have the parts to fix this problem.

Now, I'm not a mechanic or a washing machine engineer, but this thing can't have more than 20 parts in the entire thing. Yet he shows up without them on his truck. WTF!!

He orders the parts which were promised for today. (Day 11 without a washer, if your counting - times FIVE people in this house - mulipled by 95 degree weather of stinky sweaty clothes...and you begin to Get the Picture.) Well, the parts did not all arrived today, and more are promised for tomorrow, Friday, June 10th. But since I've missed my "window" of service, the next date for a technician was for Friday, June 17th!!! Yikes!!! :-(

So, you can IMAGINE I'm less than a happy customer (and I ought to mention this washer is only 2yrs old.) Spent 50 minutes this morning on HOLD to reach Customer Service. Talked to uptee-ump Service Managers - and was able to bump up the service visit to next Monday, June 13th.

[Tho' I wasn't really in danger of running out of items - being as Clothes Horse runs in my family. LOL. But the children are down to bathing suits and gym shoes. But it's certainly hot enough to get away with that for yet a awhile longer.]

Meanwhile, my MOST Excellent neighbors have been allowing me to use their washing machine to attempt to catch up on what must be 15+ loads of clothes. So, it's been an ALL Laundry - All Folding kind of Housework Hell - But a Mom's gotta do what a Mom's gotta do!!
