I spoke with Mom and Lyn the other day on the phone.  They were checking up on a couple of cold in my household.  I heard several moments of confusion in Lyn's voice.

It turned out both the washer and dryer finished their cycles at the same time.  Lyn didn't know what to do.  Mom had to walk her through the steps to remove the clothes from the dryer before transferring the load from the washer to the dryer.  Mom passed the phone to Lyn and Lyn spoke to me while Mom initiated a new dryer cycle.

Multiple demands for her attention now overwhelm Lyn.  Mom has to break the tasks back down to more manageable units for Lyn to process.  Two months ago, the two machines shutting down their cycles at the same time would not have been too much for her.
