Our washer broke. The part took a week to be delivered.
So my Hubby and I went on a date to local Laundromat. A week’s worth laundry was finished in an hour or so for around $35. in quarters. I hate spending any money on “washing clothes.” I’d rather go out to eat with my man.
We had to go on a Monday night because Tuesdays I turn into Taxi Mom.
School, Basketball practice, Airport for Civil Air Patrol, Shopping, Bible Study, and back to the Airport
I’m exhausted on Tuesdays.
The part actually broke a while ago.
Why is this important enough to mention on my blog, you may be asking?
Well, short story is this..
My husband was exhausted.
He was frustrated with one more thing breaking down in our home. We just bought a true Fixer Upper where everything has broke or needed to be replaced. It is very discouraging.
So I went to Mr. Google and found the answer on YouTube.
In 15 minutes, I was able to tell him which part was broke.
We went and found the part in the machine.
You will never believe what was on it. A bees nest. They looked like little bees – not wasps. Do you remember our Bee Story? I think they moved with us.
After we made a temporary solution, that lasted a few weeks, we ordered the part.
Seriously. No plumber called. No electrician. (It was an electrical component.)
[callout]I felt like Super Woman.[/callout]
I saved him money and frustration.
I love being my husband’s wife. We are an amazing team.
I am now finding all kinds of short how-to videos on YouTube.
It is making our lives so much simpler. I don’t know how we ever lived without that little site.
Hope this helps someone today.
Blessings to you! You are loved!

Hoorah! I understand. We have five kids and an old home – and our washing machine breaks regularly. Oh, those laundry dates!
Every time something breaks in our home, I realize how much we really take for granted. But, this year I can honestly say – I am grateful for our washing machine 1000 times over. AND a septic system. 🙂
