I'm still screaming inside!!!!
I have a new WATER SOFTENER!!!!!!
Seriously, the best thing that has happened this year!
For the last 9 months I have been without one.
Which has made my life pretty much miserable.
From having to run all my "whites" to Ben's family's farm (where there is a softener and washing machine) so we wouldn't have big orange rust stains on all our clothes
to having to wash all the dishes by hand instead of using the dishwasher because the dishes came out dirtier than when they went in in the first place.
Not to mention the havoc its created with my sinks and toilet and shower being stained almost beyond repair with a nasty orange rust.
I've tried not to complain too much but it did grate on a persons nerve to have to load all the kids up in the nastiest part of winter numerous times a week just to wash clothes. Lots of times I thought about just letting the kids wear their underwear dirty!
I feel like you will never understand how amazing and wonderful getting this water softener will mean to me. It will literally save me hours every day! And with teaching school and managing 5 children I will forever ( for a long time, anyways) be Thankful for what Ben bough me today!
