Project Organized Home

Well today's post sorta has something to do with organization. For those of you who read my daybook on Tuesday, you know that my washer broke. This could be a really long story, but I won't put you through it. Let's just say that Tuesday and Wednesday were full of online browsing, store visiting, phone call making, tool box opening and head splitting activities. At the end of it all, I wound up with a smashed and bleeding finger, but a working washer and $187 back in my bank account! That's right. I fixed the washer myself! So, I was able to get a refund on the used washer that we had bought, but hadn't picked up yet. I'm so proud of myself. And I wouldn't even have a hurt finger, if I would of remembered before I hurt it, that hubby's shop was unlocked. I was using a pair of wire strippers as a pair of pliers, and anytime you use them for anything OTHER than stripping wires, you are going to get hurt! I've done it before, and knew if would happen, but I really wanted to take stress off of hubby and work on it myself. After I made my finger hurt so bad that I wanted to cut it off, I remembered that his shop was unlocked, and I sent my oldest son out to get me the right tools. Oh well.

I'm just praising the Lord that He allowed me to fix it, and get our money back! We really didn't have the money to be buying a washer, especially when ours is only just over 2 years old! Now I pray it will continue to work for a good long while. So see, my post really does fit into organization, because without a washer, there really can't be any organization around here!


  1. I'm sorry to hear about your finger, but I'm really impressed that you were able to fix the washing machine. I can put things together, but as for taking them apart and fixing them? Yeah, not so good at that part. I hope your finger heals quickly.

  2. Glad it is working, just sorry you hurt your finger! And it is so true that if the washer is not working the whole house suffers!

  3. Good for you! Isn't it the most annoying thing to have a washer break down.

  4. Good job fixing the washer and getting your money back! I bet your husband was impressed too! Too bad about your finger, though. I'm sure it'll be good as new before you know it.

    Love the flag look on your blog - I see we had the same idea of getting ready for the 4th of July! I hope we get to go out and see the fireworks this year. We tried last year but there were too many mosquitos and I got tired of being their dessert. LOL!!

  5. Way to go, girl! I wouldn't even know where to begin on anything like that!
