Dishwasher Trouble




     Everyone has one...


                   a thing they can't live without.



                A teenager will say it's their phone...which by the way NO teen ever uses to CALL someone.

I was informed of this fact when my daughter looked at me like I had three eyes when I dared suggest she call a friend to get information.





                "Nobody calls,...we text"

                                 Okie dokie...


I look at her and her friends and think how dependent they are on those darn things....

I was NEVER that way...I speak out loud to no one in particular because EVERYONE is texting on their phones!


Then....a few days ago my husband came home to see that part of our basement ceiling had fallen down...there was a big o' leak in the basement.

After a long while of good old fashioned detective work he found that there was a leak coming from the dishwasher in the kitchen.

drip drip drippity drip

and Voila... a big gaping hole in the ceiling of the basement.

warranty  has long run out on the dishwasher...

No stinkin' dishwasher

Now I don't consider myself to be spoiled by any means. When things happen I roll with the punches, adjust and move on....but I now get that whole teen phone thing.

When we first moved into this house I think I hugged the dish washer and washing machine. We had neither in the apartment in which we lived. Once you can trade walking around pulling an overstuffed shopping cart full of laundry (yes through the snow!) with having one in your home...well there's nothing like it!

           

and can I tell you how awesome it was to have a dishwasher?! It was the first time in MY LIFE that I owned one! Just the thought that I didn't need to stand at the sink washing and rinsing was enough to make me jump for joy!

So now our dishwasher is in a sort of limbo state of disrepair... and yes, its official...the dishwasher is my one "must have"  with the washing machine a close second.

and I miss her (Yep she's a girl)

I really miss her

I miss her so much...that I'm wondering if I could trade my Teenager's phone for a repair job on it...I'm just thinking out loud and no one here is alarmed at my idea...because everyone is too busy on their phones to hear me anyway.

  2. Doing the dishes by hand is my least favorite chore! We run the dishwasher every single day with all of the dishes we have to do. I couldn't imagine not having one. I hope it's fixed soon.

  4. Why is it that the warranty always runs out right before disaster hits? I think it's an evil plan. I hope you won't have to be without one very long!
