...but I am thankful for a washing machine. I mean, we could also include in this all the other amenities we (pretty much all) enjoy in a 1st world country: dryers, dishwashers, microwaves, stoves, ovens, fresh water we don't have to buy, cars, vaccuums, air conditioning, heating...it really does go on and on.
Last night I really needed to do some laundry before our trip today...and I just stuck it in the washer with some soap, etc and let it do it's thing. Then, when it was done, I stuck it in the dryer before I went to bed. Now, it is all ready to go. No scrubbing by hand, no soaking, no hanging to dry (and waiting). It's almost magical really. Thankful. That is how I feel about it.
