It’s been a good day! I am feeling much better, but not 100% yet. Within the next few days I will be back to my old self and be able to smell/taste things like a normal human being! Love, love, love the new washer – much quieter than the old one (the old one was one of the first HE (high efficiency) washers. The delivery guy told me that they put concrete blocks in the first machines to help stabilize. I can believe it ’cause when that thing spun, it made quite a racket!!

All that’s yellow is not gold
