I was away at a conference this past weekend and I'm going away again soon to visit my oldest daughter for a week.
My family does just fine when I'm away but, as I was folding laundry last night, my husband wandered in looking for something.
'Are you going to be okay doing laundry while I'm away?' I asked him. 'Do you know how to work these things?' I said motioning to our new washer and dryer set.
'Sure,' he replied, 'you just put the clothes in and push a few buttons.'
He then walked away.
Now, this is the man who thinks yelling at his laptop and cell phone should make them work the way he wants.
But, he wasn't interested in even getting a quick explanation of how our new digital multi-buttoned machines work.
So, suffice to say, I'm taking ALL of MY clothes WITH me.
And, kids? I've taught you how to work the new machines, while I'm away might be a good time to practice using that skill.
Just a suggestion.
