Hubs and the big, shiny washer

I had a Little League board meeting tonight. It started at 7:00 and ended sometime around 9:30, but since I can't shut my yapper for longer than 3.5 seconds, I didn't end up getting home until almost 11:00. My therapist would kill me if she knew, so hopefully she's too busy deconstructing marriages and solving daddy issues to ever find out.

Anyhow, Hubs and The Dictator were home alone tonight (PPT is spending the night at Goob's house because there's no school tomorrow), and since nobody in our house has clean socks, I asked Hubs to throw in a load of whites, since, you know, I wouldn't actually be inside the house to do it myself.

This is the note I found on the counter when I strolled in at 11:00:

We've had our washing machine for 6 MONTHS and Hubs doesn't know how to get it started. Granted, it is shiny and red with lots of pretty electronic gadgets...but really?

*Note to therapist: I have a topic for next week's discussion, and for once, it ain't my daddy.

did you get one of those pretty new washers? I LOVE the red ones!

Well at least you didn't have to explain to your husband why leaving an open can of paint next to the hot water heater (the pilot is always on) is a bad idea!

I could deal with not turning on the dryer...Our child isn't even born yet, and our new house almost went up in flames!!!

P.S as our home owner's insurance broker, perhaps I should not have told you that!!! haha!

At least I fed the dogs! Doesn't that count for anything? And, I did get it figured out- just a little later than I'd planned on.
