I love the title to your blog! I do atleast 4 loads of laundry a day as well! It was nice to see someone who loves her washing machine as much as I do! I have 5 kids, ages 10, 7, 6, 6, and 3, and went to college to teach, but stopped. Now I am my children's teacher and I love it! I get to have both my passions togther at one time. ~seven4heaven.blogspot
