I am learning that one should never say "I will never". When my husband initally put in his dream sheet last year for his next duty station, I said to him, "I'll got anywhere BUT Korea". LOL I know you are all laughing. I am now here!
I have also enjoyed the comforts of my home, the things that make my life easier and the appliances that do the work for me. BUT now I am living in an apartment, using a washer, which doubles as a dryer. I have also been told that the cost of utilities is extremely high here, though since we have been in the apartment for just under a month, I can not deny or confirm how high this truly is.
So in the spirit of being frugal, saving money and getting more laundry done in a single day, I have decided to hang my laundry to dry and use the dryer minimally. I never thought that I would be hanging out my laundry. It always seemed to old fashioned to me but like I said before.... Never say Never. Life might just challenge you with exactly what you said you will never do.
