Why procrastination never works

I try not to put things off, because I have learned you just never know what tomorrow holds. Sometimes though, things just have to wait. We had a week full of appointments and 2 mornings with delayed school openings because of snow. I was determined to get my laundry caught up today. It didn't help that a certain child removed his diaper last night and added all his bedding to the numerous piles in the laundry room. I knew I was in trouble when the first load was done-and soaking wet! I put it on for an additional spin cycle, assuming it was the heavy bedding that kept it from spinning out the first time. Nope. Still dripping wet! I turned the washer on again. It made all the right sounds, but the laundry didn't move. No spin at all! So now we really wait as the repair technician can't make it here till Tuesday afternoon! Hmmmm.....that's gonna be a LOT of laundry to catch up on. Guess where I'll be on Tuesday night?

just found your blog, haven't had the time to read any further than this post but I HAVE to comment on this...
Don't wait for the repair technician, just unplug the washer and see if you can remove the rear "wall" (usually held in place by screws) and with any luck you should be able to see a black rubber drive belt that has probably snapped, or more likely just slipped off the pulleys. If it is broken, just take the belt (or pieces of the belt) and head for the closest place that carries spares and they should be able to find a new one for you for a couple of $. But hopefully it just slipped off, has happened to me a few times especially when I've overloaded the washer...
