Preparing for Vacation

Today is the one day that David & I both have off & we decided that we'd use the day to get lots of things done that needed finished before we leave for vacation.

We decided to take our car in for an oil change & a travel inspection since we'd be driving it across the country.  We seriously needed new tires & a couple of other things done to it before it could make the trip, so we are waiting for a call from the shop right now so that we can go & pick it up.  Although it cost more than we'd like to spend right before our vacation, it was pretty badly needed & we'll have a safer trip because of it.

We also thought we'd take today to catch up on our laundry & house cleaning so that it wouldn't be so bad right before we leave.  Since it has been so stinking hot outside today, we've been a little lazier about that part of it & only one load of laundry has made it as far as the dryer.

On a brighter note, we have been on the lookout for some new button-up shirts for David since most of his are black & are starting to wear out.  When we were waiting for the shop to finish the travel inspection, we walked next door to the DI (Deseret Industries - the thrift store) & looked around.  We ended up finding 3 new shirts for David for $4 each.  They were really new looking.  One of them still had the original tags on it (which said it should have cost $37.50).  We were extremely pleased with our find!

Well, back to cleaning I go...

Is your washer and dryer in your unit or do you have to go to somewhere else in the complex?

There is one washer & dryer in the basement area for all 6 apartments in our complex, so it still requires a little bit of travel in the heat to get there. You may be happy to know (or may not care entirely) that we successfully managed to get 2 loads of laundry done... among other things, of course. :)
