Big Things, Yessiree

Guess what happened yesterday? Just guess. Seriously.

I. Got. A. Dishwasher!


I bet you thought it was going to be something monumental. Well too me it is. You see, when we bought this house 4 months ago, we knew the dishwasher didn't work. It was built in 1986 and still had the original appliances. So what have I been doing two sometimes three times a day for the last 120 days? Washing a butt load of dishes, by hand.
(Had enough time to pity me yet?)

After I did a happy dance about the shiny new appliance gracing my outdated 80's kitchen, I remember I am still without oven. Remember when I thought I was getting a new oven? Then remember what happened with my hot water heater? So yeah, no new oven. I'm thinking after Christmas. No matter how bad I want to bake a turkey, the kids Christmas comes first, so I'll just have to make due. Maybe I can deep fry one.

In other news, I got something that sort of resembles a job. I'll be doing a little South county news reporting for one of our local weeklies. It's not anything big, school news, church news, deer season news. But still, it's my words in print, so I'm kinda pumped about it.

Off to fill my lovely new dishwasher and track down some big exciting new story, after I shower and change a diaper, and clean the house, and...


  1. Ooooh! Congrats on the reporting gig and the dishwasher!!

    I remember when Baby Daddy and I lived in an old apartment in the city without a dishwasher...oy! I used to spend an hour hand washing daily...I simply cannot imagine it with a full family. Mad props woman!

  2. Congrats on the job & dishwasher.

  3. Congrats! Can't wait to read your work!

    I hated not having a dishwasher! I actually am fixing to add a funny story about the new dishwasher on NLNS when I get a chance.


Now play nice and for every comment you leave, I'll buy you a pony.
