First the Microwave then the Washing Machine

First my microwave decided it wanted to go to the appliance graveyard followed quickly by my washing machine. I really can't complain too much, since the washer was used and given to me for free and the microwave was 10 years old. However, having both happen within days of one another really was hard to take. Luckily, I found a great deal on a new microwave at Target last night. I went in ready to pay close to $100 for a new microwave and found the one I really wanted on clearance for only $41.00. Woohoo for me! Now hoping I find a great deal at the scratch & dent store for my washing machine. I'm not looking for a top of the line machine, just one with a delicate cycle and more than one water level for washing.

I will be posting a review about Mine Till Midnight by Lisa Kleypas soon. I finished it over the weekend and loved it, but with my washing machine drama, Titan's football drama, and visiting with friends, I haven't had a chance to post a review. Currently reading The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks and although it started slow, the story is starting to pick up.

I think appliances have the capability to talk to each other. How else do they know to break down/die around the same time?

I agree that the appliances talk. Luckily, I live in an apartment so I only have a few that I have to pay to replace when they die.
