The Joys of Homeownership!
Somehow, our corian kitchen sink, which is built-in to our corian countertops, got a huge crack all the way through it and drenched the cabinet underneath. Then, as I was doing a load of laundry in our beautiful Maytag front-loading washing machine that came with the house, I smelled the unmistakable, burning smell of "something electrical" and when the load finished all the clothes were sopping wet. A week later, an appliance repair person came out to tell us, in about 1 minute and with an $85 charge, that we need a new washer. We bought the washer (which is really cool, by the way), waited a day for it to be delivered to the store, brought it home and spent all of yesterday and this morning doing laundry. Finally, today, we noticed that we had no hot water and that the pilot light was off on our gas hot water heater. It will not reignite. I plan on taking full advantage of the Super Bowl festivities tonight to "clear my head!"
