Hostage situation in progress

Under normal circumstances I am totally one to avoid ironing anything.

However, over the last two weeks I have found myself with a dilemma.

The trusty old iron, which in fact was a relatively “new” trusty old iron, bit the dust.

Now with you know who DD and you know what her recovery from major surgery. I haven’t had time to make the trip to the trusty Wal-Mart to replace said broken iron.

If I was a diligent, good homemaker I would heed the buzzer on the dryer and immediately make hast to place all said clothing on hangers so as not to be wrinkled.

However, who ever said that I was a good homemaker, not me.

This morning as I was kicking through the pile of worn jeans on the floor of my closet and searching for a shirt to wear in my closet I realized that alas I was going to have to go in search of a clean one.

Tragically I have been forced to endure another day of captivity due to a malfunctioning or poorly engendered electrical appliance. Its failure to work properly has now imprisoned me in my home yet again. You see I am too embarrassed to venture out into the light of day looking like I slept in my cloths.

I obviously am not too embarrassed to share the disgraceful state of my laundry pile with all of you.

Blessings

I hate to iron!! One of those things that I just totally hate! You could always of thrown it into the dryer with a damp rag for a few minutes....that's my trick!

Every morning I get up about 6:30 am and iron a shirt and a pair of pants for my husband to wear to work. I think it might show that I love him- that I am willing to do that for him. Why I don't iron 5 shirts and 5 pairs of pants and hang them in the closet ready for the week, so I can just sleep in- I'm not sure. I don't enjoy it. I guess it's just the love.

LOL You mean the wrinkled look isn't in this season? Shucks!

I'd rather clean the toilet than iron but I do a lot more ironing now that we don't have a dryer. (Or anywhere to put one.) But I ONLY iron what is ABSOLUTELY necessary. And my necessary is pretty laid back :-) That's one of the reasons I like cooler weather...sweaters hide a multitude of wrinkles!

Order one off on-line???. I hate ironing and most stuff we have is non-iron. So I have a spare one lying about un-used if you care to pop in for a coffee and collect.

Love Granny

eek! You are wearing my shirt!

LOL.... I understand... I have been know to throw cloths BACK into the dryer to reheat and hopefully get rid of some of the wrinkles. It works fairly well and then I can say that the seatbelt MUST have caused all those wrinkles...
But, I actually enjoy ironing when there is a good movie on and I can watch something. But, lately, I haven't had time.

This post had me laughing with you because, I am the same way. I have learned what Merrie stated in her comment - throw a rag, but dampened into the dryer with your clean clothes for about 5 to 10 minutes - gets all the wrinkles out.
