Pure bliss when something breaks!!!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Yippee! I get to throw it away!!!!

My son does not like to part with toys, so I am just thrilled when one breaks and I can get rid of one more *thing* from this house!!

Over the weekend, I tripped over the tv cord. Apparently I pulled the whole thing out of the console and it can't be fixed! Cool! One less tv in mantown. DH and I have been talking all weekend about how to get rid of it since the dumps & trash guys don't take them... and then he throws this at me: "actually, I just have to buy a vcr to connect it to, and it will be fine!" NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Am I the only one truly thrilled when a non-essential item breaks??

Oh yeah, cheap plastic toys especially. TV not so much because I know DH would replace it, unfortunately. Even when he has no time to actually watch it and only DS1 does.

Yes I do know what you mean...I have too many plates/bowls etc so if one is accidentally dropped, unless it is a very good one, I tend to feel pleased that I can throw it away and reduce my pile of crockery!

Toys I am the same with, I try not to show them to DH because he will always volunteer to fix the toy!

LOVE it when that happens. We've been able to part with many toys this way.

i thought i was the only one who liked when things broke!! seriously, i do not get upset when my kids break trinkets or whatever from my childhood, it just reminds me that it is just a thing! no biggie, just toss it! less baggage all around.

(because i know my mom meant well when she saved every sculpture i made in second grade )

Yeah, I used to get overly upset when things got broken (mine) but I think having DS has gotten me to realize that things are just things too!

Hilarious posts - and yes, I know the feeling...

Yup. I keep hoping the dryer dies here shortly so I can have an excuse to get a new one... which will hopefully *NOT* eat our clothes!!! (And yes, I know I "should" just hang them up to dry. But darn it that takes *SO* long in OH!!!)

Yes! I feel secretly happy every time that happens.
