My house is becoming the killing fields for small appliances! It all began with my iron dripping something onto a shirt I was ironing. I'm beginning to think me owning this particular shirt just isn't meant to be. I bought the shirt from Old Navy about a month ago. The first time I started ironing it to wear to church, I noticed there was a couple of little holes and pulls at the bottom of the shirt. So I decided to return it. When I returned it, it was on sale so I got an identical shirt for like $4 less. Then, I started ironing the new shirt to attempt to wear it again and my iron dripped some discolored liquid on it. To the laundry it went! The 3rd time I tried to iron this same shirt, the iron spit out these little black flecks that looked like pepper, but they didn't come off with a wet rag. To the laundry it went, again!! So I have this shirt that I've never worn and it's been returned once and washed twice. Hence, the overwhelming evidence tells me I need to replace my iron!
Sunday night, while I was being the sweet wife that I am sometimes, I noticed that the silver coating on the beaters of my hand mixer that I bought at a yard sale for $1.50 when I was in college had started to wear off. I told Jake that I needed to get a new hand mixer. I don't use it that often so it's not a huge necessity. As I was beating the cream cheese icing for the cake, one of the beaters quit turning. Hence, the overwhelming evidence tells me I need to replace my hand mixer!
I guess all things need to be replaced at some point. Right now I'm just glad that it's small, minor appliances that don't cost very much! I did think the microwave was going to blow up a few weeks ago, but I think I had just sprayed a little bit of cleaner on the bulb or something!
Jake told me Saturday night that it's time for me to replace a pair of brown slip on loafers that I wear all the time. He says they look like grandma shoes! He says he's going to go buy their replacement himself since I'm too cheap and picky. I think he'll probably personally deliver the pair he hates to Goodwill!
I guess replacements aren't so bad!
