you don't know what you have...

The old adage is true: You don't know what you have, until it's gone.

Ain't it the truth?
Health, childhood bliss, and for me--a dryer. Yes, team, we have been fortunate enough to own a washer and dryer these past three years. And, boy, I have LOVED them fiercely. I spend almost every day with one of them.

Well, I hate to report that the dryer has stopped drying. Apparently, Aaron is going to try his hand repairing it this Saturday. He thinks that the "Heating Element" is broken. Now, does he know much about dryers? Nope. Has he ever fixed one? Nope. Should we start praying for our dryer? Yes. (no offense, hon).

No, really, I am glad that HE is going to give it a whirl, because I hear that these repair people could charge a hefty amount---so, I say, "Get out those tools, babe."

The BIG problem is this---I need clean clothes... ASAP. Luckily/Unluckily, I am caught up in my laundering, except for the WHITES. This is a problem. A big problem.

So, I guess I'm gonna do what our forefathers did, back in the day. Hang them on "the line" to dry. Now, I don't know if me OR my neighbors are going to love seeing our "unmentionables", but what-cha-gonna-do? ---------- No. I can't. I guess I'm going to go ahead and just put to use all of my hangers around the house.

That is a better idea, for everyone involved, I'm sure.

Thanks for helping me think that one through.

Here are the pictures from our 4th Anniversary Date. We decided we'd go "casual" and hit up the old ChaChos, which we love. After these pictures, I know you'll love it too. Thank you TexMexAwesome. Oh, and we let Matilda come too. She begged and begged, so we caved in. She loves a good quesadilla (just kidding, she only is acquainted with Gerber products, so quit stressin').


I'm doing a 4 with my fingers. Clever. Sheesh, I know.


Good times.

P.S. On the Christmas post, my lovely sister, Becca, mentioned that I wrote about Adam's single-ness and she'd also like to post that SHE, TOO, IS AVAILABLE. :) Here's a picture, in case you want to take her out on the town. Oh, and did I mention, she LOVES to cook.

I think you should hang the unmentionables outside. It'll break the ice with your neighbors and maybe they'll recognize it for what it really is: a cry for help...for SOMEONE with handyman SKILLZZ to come fix your dryer. Just a thought...

oh my. I didn't mean you had to give me another whole picture on your precious blog space! But since you already did... way to go girl. My future husband gives you a big air five.

"unmentionables"...this just makes me laugh out loud. I can't remember if you were the one that coined this phase on dear sweet H.T., but I remember doing our laundry and you being extremely worried that the boys were going to see our "Unmentionables" and I have called them this ever since. WEll, until lately I started calling them undies, because Jackson's undies really are to die for! They have got to be the most precious things to see him running around in. :) Sorry for the sidenote. Anyway, point being thanks for the great laugh.

dude- you can totally come use my dryer if you need to!! it works for now! :)

Kristen said...

I love wingers and chachos. You should come to my house and dry your clothes here. Any time!

The Cook Family said...

I'll have you know that I just recently got my Chacho's withdrawals under control and thanks to you... THEY'RE BAAAACK! Happy anniversary anyway!

Jill said...

I hope your dryer gets fixed and I hope it happens soon! Also, I'm glad you had fun anniversary date. We definitely love the Chachos TexMex - yum!

Tim and Melissa said...

Mmmm...Chachos is now calling my name. Thanks to you we may be heading there this weekend. :)

By the way...I live a block away. PLEASE come use my dryer - it would be much faster than hanging each individual item up to dry. Remember the day I used your washer? Consider this paybacks.

Mel Bel...when we first moved to our house it took them three weeks...count them...three weeks to get our dryer delivered. (it was only supposed to take three days. Ha! The hangers in every closet work like a charm...and the great thing is that unmentionalbles actually dry pretty fast. I believe in you! I loved the Christmas post too! Great work, that was alot of pictures!
