Say no to dishpan hands!

dishwashingIt's a big day for celebration at my house, because at long last we finally got our new dishwasher, and it's installed and ready for dirty dishes. Yeah!!!!! This saga started around a month ago when our old dishwasher just stopped. In the middle of a cycle. Apparently it decided that 17 years of service was long enough and it just stopped working (with a bunch of grayish dishwater in the bottom). Thus began the search for a new dishwasher, followed by some delivery scheduling trauma, a defective machine being installed..and hopefully now..success. This is a big deal because I HATE WASHING DISHES. I still remember when I told my mom I was ready to upgrade from the job of just clearing the table and sweeping the floor, and that I wanted to wash the dishes. Big mistake. I hated it, and there was no going back.  Here are a few more moments in my dishwashing history. *hid from my family, inside my house, to avoid helping with Thanksgiving dinner dishes (I won't tell you how old I was..it's kind of embarassing). *broke a glass pitcher after it fell from a Jenga like pile of dirty dishes. It was no fun picking up the shattered pieces that were coated with sticky lemonade remnants *helped a boyfriend throw away a box-full of his room-mate's dishes that were beginning to fossilize in the sink *have been known to say I'd prefer a dishwasher to an engagement ring any day Don't go getting any ideas now. I'm not engaged. I'm holding out for a new refrigerator. With ice and water in the door.

I just wonder how many dishwashers you looked at before you decided to buy one, I know how picky you can be but don't mean that as a bad thing, really ha. Did you have to clean out the left over water or did the repair man do that for you? That would have been gross cuz you know how I feel about dirty dishes, never one in my sink cuz they will start to smell up your house if you don't do them. I am cleaning up while my husband is still eating, makes him crazy but that is how much I hate dirty dihes laying around. Don't happen in this house. DBD
