There is a sneaky thief at large in my life. He(yes, I am darn sure it is a he. No, I don't have any specific reason, I just know, okay?!?) stole my energy. He stole our summer and now he's broken my washing machine. In the middle of a load of laundry. Don't you just love when that happens? Why does the washing machine always break when there is a lot of water inside that it refuses to empty?!? Naturally I called hubby after I had tried to switch programs and had fooled around with it for a bit without any success.
Me: The washing machine broke
Runar: Pull out the plug and wait a bit, put it back in and restart it.
2nd phone call
Me: Didn't help
Runar: Perhaps there is something stuck in the filter.
Me: Yes, that is very likely as Simen had a pocket full of nails and screws in that pair of pants I washed yesterday.
Me: I picked up every one I found when it was finished. I also turned the drum and it didn't make any screeching noises.
Typical. The one time you decide to take a chance and not check the boys' pockets for things that doesn't belong in a washing machine, you get caught. Wet handed, so to speak. Ack! Should I make the boys wear pants that don't have pockets?
Actually, when i think about it, it may not be a thief. At least not an ordinary thief. Ordinary thieves don't steal summers. I bet it's that dratted imp again
I need a thief-repellent, or an imp-repellent. Anyone knows about a good one?
Have a fantabulous weekend, guys
PS! What is a wine slushie and how do I make it? I have a hunch I will need it tonight. It's raining cats and dogs, it's cold, but I don't care. I have a feeling I'll be able to not only imagine, but feel the summer heat when I have drunk enough of those things
PPS!....or is it more an eating of, than drinking of?
PPPS! If you're coming to get me, please take me to a funny farm on a tropical island where they serve wine slushies. Thank you.
