    Default My husband tried to help me; now I have to spend money...UPDATE: PAD FOUND!!

    Ok, so today has been horse laundry/bum around the house day. To prepare for this I brought home saddle pads a few days ago, no biggie just been trail riding this week. So, into the washer go the baby pads and polos. But, I can't find my Matties pad anywhere!!! I know I brought it home, you can't miss a green wool half pad! Get ahold of the hubby,

    Me: "have you seen my Matties pad?"
    DH: "Yes, I hand washed it and hung it to dry a few days ago"
    Me: "Well, it wasn't on the line when I put up laundry last night"
    DH: "Oh...It has to be SOME WHERE!"
    Me: "It is not, I walked the yard and outter wall just in case the dogs got it or it fell out of the truck"
    DH: "Um, well we can get you another one"
    Me: "Do you know what that pad cost?"
    DH: "Is it a special pad or somthing?"
    Me: hanging up the phone.


    UGH!!! Poof! Pad is GONE! It was the one with all the shims too!! Won't he be in shock when I "just get another one" and he can't afford to put somthing fancy and new in his camero because of it!

    grrrrrr......

    If DH said anything like that to me Id have to have him arrested for impersonating. He thinks hand washing is what youdo before dinner. He doesnt do laundry. EVER. We both like it that way.

    It should turn up soon hopefuly.

    I am in SHOCK that he did it! He was gone to school for 3 months and has been overly helpful since he has gotten home.

    I just made the rounds again; no pad anywhere. I even checked the dumpster in case it blew off the line and a neighbor or land lord chucked it in there, but the dumpster was emptied this morning!!

    Any recomendations on getting another for a really good price or a compatable one? Need to be able to use shims in it though.

    OUCH!!! I know how you feel--EXACTLY!!! I've been sick nearly all summer (since mid-July) and my sister came to help me get my house cleaned up again. We threw out a bunch of stuff, including some old nasty breeches I don't wear any more. Unfortunately, she threw out two brand new pairs of Irideons--one didn't even have the tags cut off!

    Oh, I know exactly how you feel!

    You do know that you'll find the original pad about 2 hours after you buy a new one, right?
    You jump in the saddle,
    Hold onto the bridle!

    Be thankful that he at least tried to help you, not all have husbands who would do something like this. Yes, he probably lost your pad, they are expensive but don't bust his chops too much

    I once had a husband who sold my Crosby Prix de Nations at a yard sale for $40. I had a bridle for sale marked $40, the saddle was in the house and not for sale, but when someone asked if there was a saddle for sale he figured he could sell it for the same price. First I replaced the saddle with a County, then I replaced the husband! Some things are unforgivable, lol!

    MistyBlue!! YOU BROUGHT ME LUCK!!! THE PAD IS FOUND!!!

    Are you guys ready for this??!!?? Apparently the pad DID blow away as I feared; however my friend was driving down my road and SAW IT!! She didn't know what it was at first and just stopped to see what it was and thought "That looks like Trickster's pad!!" She called me this afternoon when she got off work and says "I know this sounds crazy but did you SOMEHOW lose your Matties pad?" I nearly Peed My Pants!

    In short I now claim MistyBlue to be my good luck charm!

    The husband is nearly forgiven as it has been found and has agreed to ask or at least let me know before he trys to help out.

    Cool

    Sounds like that husband is pretty well-trained already. To hand wash it AND hang it to dry? *I*'m impressed!!!
