Today continues this week’s tradition of technology being useless. I got home planning to do a little laundry for next week before I went to bed and caught up on sleep for the first time this week. When I called home I was informed by a rather despondent mother that the new washer is not spinning out the water just like the old one was doing before it blew up. I got home and was greeted by Micheal, with a “I’m getting a carpet ball table”. Yet another thing done around here for the kids that will get next to no use. So I took a look at the washer and sure enough it’s not spinning water out. My first thought is that it’s overloaded but that doesn’t seem to be the case. I set it to run again and went to bed. I was asleep for no more than an hour when I was awoken with a bellow of my name. When I got back down stairs to figure out what the emergency was I was told, “It still didn’t work”. Yeah well sorry, I’m not a god I can’t just wave my hand and have things fixed. The only thing I can figure is that the power dips during the beginning of the spin cycle when the washer draws the most power, the power dip then resets the controller circuitry. As a test I switched the outlets in use by the washer, and the dryer. I hope this will prove to be a fruitful choice but I just don’t know. As it stands my confidence level is so much lower than it has been in a long time. I’m trying to look at it as a check to keep my ego from getting out of control but good grief, have I really been this cocky?

Worlds shortest personality test…
Saw this on a bunch of peopels blogs today… I figured what the heck, why not…
You are pure, moral, and adaptable.
You tend to blend into your surroundings.
Shy on the outside, you’re outspoken to your friends.
You believe that you live a virtuous life…
And you tend to judge others with a harsh eye.
As a result, people tend to crave your approval.
