Went to the start the laundry and was greeted with this:
I took a deep breath.
Considered throwing all the clothes away and getting a new washer.
Knew that was irrational so considered taking a nap and forgetting this ever happened.
Felt guilty taking a nap, so got a diet coke, said farewell to my Big Plans, took another deep breath, grabbed a trash bag, and attempted to save clothes and washer.
As for the washer, I used my dust buster to suck up all beads in sight. I then ran it through an empty cycle and I'm pretty sure it's ok. We'll find out during the next load of laundry.
Lesson Learned: Don't wash squishy pillows that are filled with white beads. They may explode.
