Found a Quarter!

November 6th, 2014 at 02:12 pm

I found a quarter in the station this morning! I always like to add in the big coins!

The plumber did not come yesterday. It turned out he had to go to the emergency room, so of course I am not at all disgruntled. I will just have to reschedule.

I did do a little investigation on my own, though. The hall closet that I had hopes for does NOT back up to the kitchen, as I thought, but to the exterior stairwell. That's not good. The only hope for that closet is if there are pipes in the side wall which service the condo on the other side. Not sure exactly where the two condos touch -- I need a building map! I would also need to have an electrical outlet installed in the closet.

The bedroom closet, which backs up to the bathroom and was another possibility, is too small. I think a washer/dryer may be impossible in my unit.

I COULD have one in the kitchen if I sacrificed the dishwasher, but a dishwasher is more important to me than a washer/dryer.

My knee is much improved, so it is not so hard to get to the basement any more, but eventually the stairs WILL be a problem as I age. I guess at that point I will have to think about new housing. Didn't think it would be an issue so soon.

Oh well, I think maybe I just saved more than $1400!

    You might (eventually) be able to pay someone in your building to do your laundry. When AS was unemployed, she did laundry for a woman with mobility issues in our building for $10 a load. Washed, dried and folded--pretty handy for the lady!

    Yes, I was thinking something like that might be possible down the road.

    I've seen small washers on wheels that roll to kitchen tap/sink and store in a closet. We've installed retractable clothes lines to function across the bathtub to accept items hung on hangers to dry. I'm trying to avoid using the dryer.
