Husband Lends a Helping Hand

On Monday night when I got home from work, I immediately put a load of clothes in the washer. The reason I have to do this immediately is because, as I have stated before in previous posts, my dryer takes 3 hours to dry clothes and that is NOT an exaggeration.

So Grant got home from work, we went to the gym, and when we got back I started to cook dinner.

As I was making dinner, sweet Grantley came up and asked me if I needed any help with anything. Precious. So I told him that if he wanted to help me, he could transfer all the clothes from the washer into the dryer. "Sure thing" he said.

I wasn't paying attention to what he was doing (I was focused on the stove) but all of a sudden, Grant said "Well, the dryer's broken".

"What do you mean?"

"I broke the dryer".

"How did you do that? I just asked you to put clothes in it and press start"

"Well, I know you're always complaining about how long it takes, and it looks like the hose back there is all twisted, so I wanted to untwist it for you. But, I broke it instead".

".... okay.... so I can't dry those clothes tonight? They just have to stay wet?"

"Uh huh. I'll call maintenance tomorrow."

"Okay...." (inhale. exhale. He was trying to help. inhale. exhale.)

Sweet-darling-pumpkin-head is trying to help, I know, but this morning I cringed when I saw those wet clothes in there. The maintenance team is supposed to come sometime today. :)

Nice. Maybe it won't take 3 hours to dry clothes anymore, though!

I am thankful for my husband and his helpful, servant heart. :)


  1. awww! sweet man! what a darling serving heart he has! well, perhaps maintenance will have it all fixed up for you and your dryer will only spend 30mins to an hour to dry!!! HOORAY!

  2. you are precious and your "inhale-exhale" was such a good response. :)


  3. Bless our husbands hearts for helping out! :)

  4. You are totally going to get a great and fast working dryer out of this. The lesson here is for Grant, not you. The more he helps and makes you inhale-exhale the better the end result? Right?
