The dryer saga continues . . . .

Let me give a little synopsis of what has transpired with our dryer. A couple of months ago I started noticing that the dryer was taking longer than usual to dry a load of clothes. After mentioning this to my husband for several weeks with the usual response, "I'll have to look at it." and of course as you all know things come up and the "I'll have to look at it." doesn't happen. So, I decided to hit it where I would get the quickest reaction. In his wallet. Once I mentioned that the dryer could be the cause of the rising electric bill, the dryer was taken apart and the heating element was replaced. Well, that and cleaning the build up of lint fixed the problem. You have never seen a happier wife than I. Going from 2 hours to 40 minutes a load was miraculous!! We have been fine with the dryer since. I was bragging to everyone about the dryer. Well, I should have knocked on some wood. This morning I thought I was doing great. Got up at 5:30a with the hubby since I knew the kids needed some specific clothes for school. Finally got them in the dryer and decided to check the email. I asked one of the kids to check on the clothes around 6:20a. Well the report was, "They're still really wet". Not good. So, I went to check myself and found that the dryer wasn't even heating up at all. AARGGHH! Imagine this, me and 5 kids running around like chickens with our heads cut off so we could rush off to Grandma's to dry the clothes before school. Oh what a morning!! This is where I need all of your prayers. My hubby has yet to find out about this morning's adventure. Pray for me as I try to convince him to send the dryer off to the appliance graveyard and go shopping for a replacement. Wish me luck!! I'll keep you posted. . . . . . .
