Drowning in dirty clothes

We are a family of four and I have to our dirty clothes everyday and I still can’t keep up.

I was almost in tears when my ever reliable 4 year old washing machine gave me 7 blinks (telling me that something is wrong), the handy mommy in me walk to my husband’s tools took the long nose pliers and cleaned the filter. Turned it on and it gave me a loud chug. My usual fix didn’t do the fixing!

Patiently I waited for the service guys to come only to deliver the sad news that they have to take my friend back to the warehouse and replace the motor.

I feel so helpless my friend is leaving me (for a while) I don’t really know how to wash clothes by hand and don’t have the time to do so with a demanding baby in my arms.  Since we are celebrating the Eid holidays I have to wait for 6 days till she comes back home.

I’m drowning in dirty clothes and stinky cloth diapers!

*by the way our car also got sick and needs to see the mechanic and stay with them for 6 days as well!


I guess we are stuck at home this Eid drowning in dirty clothes.
