My life has been changed DRASTICALLY by my two best friends. My aunt introduced me several weeks ago to them. She became acquainted with them, saw an improvement in her quality of life, and now I love them too! I love them because they know how to do their job well but be completely silent about it. I love them for the wrinkle protection they provide. Much less ironing for me! Most of all, I love them for their large capacity. I (seriously ladies...not overstating here) used to do 12-15 loads of laundry every single week! I was having to do it everyday. It was torture. After talking to Aunt Sharon, it started me thinking... and researching. After several weeks of setting up a good argument to win my hubby over (we are "use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without people"). I told him how much money we could save on our utility bill and how much happier I would be if I wasn't a slave to my family's dirty clothes. He consented. The next week these were delivered. Why am I telling you all of this? Well, today is laundry day and I will be doing all of my laundry in 3 maybe 4 loads! I feel lik eI have been parolled from a life sentence! That, and my electricity bill was 30 dollars less last month...what more could a girl want?

Kiki is 7. She spends her free time playing outside any chance she gets. She loves the monkey bars, mastering her cartwheels, reading chapter books about animals, and shopping for clothes. She loves animals. We have a hamster, two parakeets, and a dog - all because of her. She is constantly wanting to add to our flock. I wouldn't be suprised if she grows up to work with animals. She is extremely responsible and if I ever need to remember something I just ask her ot remind me, she never forgets.
