About a month or so ago, my husband said, “I don’t know how to say this without it sounding ridiculous, but...”  He proceeded to tell me the trouble he was having with his boxers!  The fly was garbled up and the hem at the bottom was rolled.  I looked at him in shocked dismay and said, “Are you asking me to IRON your underwear????”  Sheepishly, he said, “I guess i am...unless there is another way of fixing them.”  I HATE to iron and my husband knows had to be difficult for him to say what he said so i just let it go even though my natural inclination would be to ask him if he’d lost his mind!

Fast-forward to last Sunday.  I was lucky enough to have the entire day to myself as everyone had plans and none of those plans required my attention or time!  I decided to totally catch up on laundry, no small task in a household of 5...2 of whom had just cleaned their room.  If your kids are anything like mine, their cleaning their room comes at a high price to the laundry.

When i entered the laundry room, i realized that not only the laundry needed to be done but the laundry room needed some attention!  While tidying the laundry room, i came across the ironing board and had a brainstorm.  All day long, as i folded one load of laundry after another, i pulled every pair of my husband’s boxers out and IRONED them!!!  I did this with a smirk on my face because i’d decided that i wasn’t going to say anything to my husband about it and let him discover his nice, smooth undies all on his own!  What a nice surprise it will be for him and i know he’ll say something when he realizes he’s wearing non-bunched-up shorts...and when he does, i’m going to smile and say, “Happy Valentine’s Day!”

Who said i’m not romantic?  LOL
