Few days ago, I was complaining to mybf when the washing machine decided not to work. "How?" "I totally have no idea. There was no humming sound." The only thing on my mind was, it's time to consider (the machine is not that old) buying a new one.

Without the functioning machine, washing clothes by hand was unavoidable and it could turn out to be a nightmare be a very tedious chore. Yes? Since I don't wash my clothes everyday, at the end of the week, not only clothes and lingerie but also towels, bedsheet, pillow cases,...all piled up in a laundry basket at the corner of the bathroom. I felt that sense of dread seeing the mountain pile before I started the "laundry sports"!

Then last Saturday, mybf decided to try and fix the washing machine. He grabbed a screwdriver, unscrewed, turned over, removed the cover, accessed to the underside of the machine...

Finally, the machine worked!

I got very excited and I couldn't wait to turn on the washing machine again.

Thanks to the lovely Rozella over at Asian Mutt International for this tag.

Now, I would like to hear from blusher, U.Lee, Nightwing, osindak, Nick.
It's time to share your complaint(s).

In order to be able to achieve and maintain happiness we need to, actively, be able to do two things:
1. Complain and then let go (Dump the baggage, the roadblocks to happiness.)
2. Openly Express Gratitude (The open expression of gratitude promotes happiness.)

After all, everyone has something to be grateful for and/or something to complain about. If you would like to accept the challenge, please follow the appropriate link and do so: "Are You Grateful?", "Complain Complain Complain."

My name is Mel, aka MondayMorningPower and the author of the Big Bang. I am also the creator of the Gratitude meme. I wanted to let you know that I created a site specifically for this meme; http://AreYouGrateful.Com. What I am doing is posting all of the gratitude statements on that site and linking them back to the author. This comes with a healthy dose of link-love.

Your “Gratitude Statement” has been posted on the “Gratitude Site.” The URL is < http://areyougrateful.blogspot.com/2008/05/79-me-and-washing-machine.html >. Don't forget to come by and copy/paste the current list of participants (currently 94 sites, including you) back to your post. Doing this frequently insures maximum link benefit for everyone who participates. And by keeping your list current with mine you won't have to respond to individual participant requests to add them to your list. Staying current is optional. However, if you do stay current, you will maximize the “link-love” for everyone who participates. My suggestion is to schedule a visit to < http://areyougrateful.blogspot.com/2008/03/how-to-submit-statement-of-gratitude.html > once every couple of weeks and add the new participant links.

Please let me know if there are any changes that you would like to make to the post that resides on the Gratitude site.

Thanks for participating. If possible, try to get others to participate; again, totally optional. Also, you can contribute as many “Statements of Gratitude” as you wish.
