There are 3 household chores you will never find me doing.
Unless, of course, I’ve spent enough time in the Lord’s presence to fully surrender and die to myself in order to gain His strength to go forth and do them.
Or my family has staged a mutiny because everyone is having allergy attacks.
#1 – Mopping.
#2 – Dusting (especially annoyances like fans, blinds, and chandeliers).
and #3 – Ironing.
I never, EVER iron.
Partially because I don’t really know how. And trust me, my mom and mother-in-law have both shown me. Sometimes I feel like my brain is like a beach bucket with holes in the bottom.
The Happy Hubby tells me I have selective memory.
Needless to say, as the wife of a worship pastor who likes to look his best on Sunday mornings, I do very little to accommodate his desire for wrinkle-free fashion.
The man has about 25 handsome buttoned-down shirts in his closet, but alas, if they are not the ‘wrinkle-free’ kind that I can throw in with the rest of the laundry and hope to remember to take out of the dryer on time, then they end up getting worn once (or not at all) and then put back in the closet to collect dust (which I stay far away from).
So my sweet Happy Hubby ends up wearing the same 2 shirts every week – often with a big crease in the front or wrinkle on the sleeve.
Well, Father’s Day is coming up and I got to thinking that it might be a nice surprise to collect up his dust-bunny-ed, wrinkled shirts and take a little trip to the dry cleaners. Plus, a few years ago I saw one of the gals over at How Does She? do this for her Happy Hubby and it sounded like just the thing my man needed before having to show up to church wearing his undershirts.
Now we are not regular dry cleaning people. It’s not a part of our budget. But this is for something (someone) special and I ended up finding a super inexpensive dry cleaners down the road from our Happy Home.
I may have felt like I should have been packing heat in order to safely go into said
ghetto inexpensive dry cleaners, but we made it out alive.
Just a little Father’s Day idea for all my non-ironing-bloggy friends.
Happy Father’s Day Closet Surprise-ing!
