The Kofford Family relocates to Colorado after 40 years as Californians. In December of 2007, Grandma Lorraine is diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer. Sadly, she passed away on Dec. 26th, 2008 after a year long courageous battle. Follow our journey as we keep Lorraine's memory alive, and as we learn to appreciate that each day we are given, is a gift to be enjoyed!

You're happy over a washing machine?

I admit it, I get a thrill over household conveniences. As someone who loves a clean house, and "everything in it's place" I was ecstatic over the "Roomba" Tom got for me for Christmas which is a robot vacuum cleaner! I can sit on the sofa while my new friend Roomba slaves over vacuuming carpets! Hooray!

My poor clothes dryer had died and been resurrected once before, but now it has been taking two 60 min. cycles to dry a load of clothes. My mom noticed this and how our washing machine makes an obnoxious banging noise when the clothes are unbalanced in the drum. Things like this one just tends to live with, until the machine finally dies and has no hope of repair. Not my mother mom does not let any grass grow under her feet as you know! So, she sent us on our way to purchase a new washer an dryer set. "Why wait Denise?" she happily said, "You should make your life easier any chance you can!"

So, we took her advice and now I have a new High Efficiency washer and dryer duo. Did you know that it only takes 2 tbls. of detergent to clean a full load of wash which will hold 23 towels? Who would have known? I am now thrilled to do laundry, and will happily do laundry for any of our readers...I can wash your clothes and ours in a single load! A homemakers bliss!

Hey Denise I would be thrilled over a new washer/dryer too! It is beautiful and I'm so happy for you!

It has been wonderful hearing from you Lorraine the last few days. So glad that you had a wonderful birthday and some pampering as well! We are keeping you all close in our hearts and prayers even though we are seperated by many miles.

I am so glad that you guys are doing your part to reduce your carbon footprint by getting a new environmentally friendly washer and dryer.

I got a new high efficiency washer and dryer last year and they are great.
