The Spin Cycle Of Life

Do you know what’s so not funny? How about when you are loading your dryer and you notice that you are standing in a puddle of water that has leaked from the washing machine.

And you know what else isn’t funny? When you find out that during the spin cycle the other day your machine apparently decided to try it’s hand at escaping the confines of your laundry room and started shaking so hard that it was literally moving across the floor.

It’s also not funny when you realize that your washing machine no longer realizes that it has a spin cycle.

It’s even less funny when you realize that your washing machine is now going from the regular cycle straight into the delicate cycle and then back into the regular cycle all without stopping. So apparently our washer has decided that it prefers working full-time.

But you know what is absolutely hilarious? We have our washer and dryer in a utility closet in our kitchen. It’s a double door closet (if you can picture what I’m talking about), so there isn’t much to spare. Jeremy and I had moved the washer out into the kitchen to clean up the floor, put it back, and then Jeremy squeezed into the small space that we made for the dryer so that we could clean it out. I had gone into Jackson’s room for a minute when I heard this awful pop and then him yelling, “Oooouuuucccchhhh!!”

I ran back into the kitchen fearing that: 1. Jeremy had gotten shocked or 2. (which was highly more likely) that Jeremy had slipped in the water and broken something. Again. When I got into the kitchen Jeremy is standing there with this odd expression on his face. I asked him what was wrong and he didn’t say anything. He just calmly held his foot up off the ground and this is what I saw attached to his big toe:


Can you even imagine? After I quit laughing and started breathing normally again, I pulled it off his toe. Jeremy told me that he saw the trap, but that he didn’t think he was going to be near it.

Apparently he was wrong.

Now I know I’m a horrible, horrible person for laughing, but y’all, it was so funny that even Jeremy started laughing. Eventually. When the feeling came back to his toe.

And he even said that my blog post would have been even better if I had taken the time to get a picture. I’ll try to remember that next time.

What.. no re-enactment of the offending toe in said trap??? Aw.. come on. : ) But that is so funny. In a ouchy sort of way. I feel for you with the washing machine troubles. I haven't blogged about it much this week but I've had mega issues just getting a washer/dryer I can deal with. Long story.. and I don't want to do a whole post just fussing...well at least not about that! So lemme just say that I hope you get your laundry issues under control quickly and easily. : )

Jeremy needs to wrap himself in bubble wrap. Seriously. He's an accident waiting to happen!

Love it! You need to have a blog that's just simply called "Jeremy's Accidents".
