This is not what any laundry OCD woman wants her washing machine to look like after she tells her hubby it won't turn on...

Fortunately instead of spending A LOT of money replacing the washing machine we were able to order the replacement part and get it "expidited" to us for only $100. (We both thought it would be a lot more expensive than that because the broken part is the control panel AKA "brain of the machine".) Anyone who has bought a front loader machine knows that is a whole lot less than buying a new one! I know I am hard on machines, I mean in out house we need to judge their age in something like dog years. My poor machine is only about 4 1/2 years old, but it has been used like it has been around for 20 years. Seriously folks, I wash a lot of dirty boy clothes in that machine!

So today I am grateful that my machine can be repaired, that my hubby is the handy one putting it back together, and that my laundry will hopefully be back under control by Wednesday. I did not want to have to hunt down a bargain for a new machine, it is not a fun process for me!

I have also learned in all of this chaos that my habit of doing a load or two of laundry everyday instead of waiting until the weekend is pretty smart!

Head on over to Laura's at Heavenly Homemakers for more Gratituesday!

Until next time,


  1. I am so glad to hear that your hubby can fix it. I am also glad to hear that you do not have to purchase a new one!!! I have a front loader washer and dryer also, and I would cry if I had to purchase a new one. Praise God it can be fix for so little.

  2. So nice that it's an easy and inexpensive fix! I hear you about the dirty boy clothes!

  3. Yikes! Glad your hubby was able to fix it.

  4. Isn't it nice to know that God cares about what we care about? Little blessings can make a big difference!


Thank you so much for stopping by, I appreciate your words!
