Fun With Appliances

September 9, 2011 7 comments

It took three loads of laundry, but I think I know how to use my washer now. I can only run it successfully ¬†on one cycle, but it seems to work. (Ed.–I was wrong, I’m still completely clueless. My washer just ran for 3 hours while I was gone and I don’t know why. What a ridiculous waste of water.) If anyone out there has a washer like this, I welcome tips on how to use it. Our relocation assistant told me how to use it yesterday, but I was severely sleep-deprived. She also drove us around the area, showing us where to find a grocery store, post office, appliance stores. I remember very little of it. Her attempt at an orientation resulted in some major disorientation on my part.

We take so much for granted in the everyday things we are accustomed to using. I used the oven for the first time today and for a moment wondered why it only went up to 250 degrees. Then I shouted to Stace to get me a conversion for 350F = nC. It’s 175C in case you ever need it.

I also love that the German clothes dryer has a setting called “Summer.” Anyone want to enlighten me on that one? I can’t wait to buy a blender!
