who in the world ever had the bright idea that clothes look better if they are ironed? for one thing, it's not even realistic because after wearing something for ANY amount of time, it automatically has wrinkles! seriously, i am physically unable to iron. i am not even kidding. i am fortunate, because i really only iron once a week. adam wears a dress shirt and dress pants on sundays, and other than that it is only if there is a funeral or something that he needs to dress up any other time. but for real, every saturday night when i start ironing, i just get so frustrated! i mean i iron the sleeve. then, thinking i have just accomplished that, i turn it over and find that there is now a HUGE crease in the other side. so i then iron THAT side. well, then i turn it over again, and see another crease in the previously ironed side. and this goes on for a while...you get the idea. pants are a whole nother story. i mean, for real? a crease down the FRONT??? not in the natural place, like where each side is sewed together? and then how in the world are you supposed to get the back side ironed? it doesn't even fit on the ironing board...aaahhhhhh!! ok, am i the only person who was born with this disability, and is there a name for it?? ironitis, or ironexia? well...i guess i will just keep thinking that everything i do i have to do it heartily - as if i were doing it for the Lord. but then, he chose to wear robes, right? i'm sure they weren't ever ironed!!


  1. i'll give you a free lesson when we're home for christmas. i'm an expert ironer!!

  2. :) ironing is kind of wild. although, i dont do much of it!! which is quite nice.

  3. This may seem against my personality, but I'm allergic to ironing. Really, I swear. I don't do it. If something of mine needs to be ironed, I won't wear it. Sometimes James knows that, and will iron it for me! But I have recently (in my married life) become a gigantic fan of Downy Wrinkle Release Spray. Ever use it? It's fantastic--and it smells nice too :)

  4. I know exactly what you mean. I think it must be genetic. I am also an ironophobic who is wrinkle-challenged. And, if you think you have iron issues, just remember that Uncle Paul requires that I iron ALL his clothes. Yes all! If he had his way, everything would be starched too. So, count your blessings, and moan and groan a little in sympathy for me, please.
    I hate ironing so much that I put it off as long as possible and then I end up with 3 to 4 hours of it at one time. At least I can watch an old movie or two while I am doing it. That is the only bright spot in my dark and dreary ironing world! =(
