You don't realize how much you appreciate one of these:
Until you've been without a functioning one for over a month and a half!. That's my fault. Called at the beginning, they said it needed replacing, and I just waited. I was getting pretty good about a dishwashing routine in the morning during Gwen's first nap, but seriously enough was enough, especially on days after a big meal or canning adventure. Procrastination got me nothing but less time to do something fun, wrinkly fingers, an overloaded sink, and all my counter space (I don't have much of it) filled up with drying dishes. Well, okay, I also got a pretty good arm work out on some days. :)

*(Posterity, just so you know, I don't like being a squeaky wheel. I also really don't like to make phone calls, so will avoid it even if necessary calls need to be made. I much prefer written conversations, perhaps because I sound a lot more intelligent. :)*

Well, turns out I really should have called again sooner, because 2 days after the 2nd call, we got a brand new one! I've done 2 loads today and it is wonderful! (doesn't match, but beggars can't be choosers-- who cares about aesthetics when the thing actually WASHES YOUR DISHES FOR YOU!!!) Glorious, glorious, technology!!!


  1. Oh, I feel your pain! We went without a dishwasher for 2 years while we lived in Utah!! I hope to never go back to that.

  2. I would die if my dishwasher broke. I would seriously go out and buy a new one the very same day, even if I had to put it on my credit card. We didn't have a dishwasher or washer/dryer in our first apartment. It was an adventure in housekeeping. :) I never want to go back, especially now that I have a full on family. Glad you got a brand new one!

  3. I hate making phone calls too. Now Jacen's saying his tooth hurts so I guess I can stop procrastinating making his dental appointment.

    I've called my landlord weekly for two months trying to get a stupid hole in the wall fixed!!! One that goes from inside the house to the outside! I'm gonna start calling them daily.

  4. I'm glad I'm not the only one who HATES making phone calls! We didn't have a dishwasher for two years and I don't know how we survived. We'll probably be moving out of my parent's house soon and we've had our own kitchen with a dishwasher and I'm not looking forward to moving somewhere that doesn't have one. Why is it that nearly all Utah rentals don't have a dishwasher? Sheesh!
