OT: Appliance heaven...

For a year and a half, this was my world. When our dishwasher died a lime coated death, we kept saying we were going to just fix it. I bought parts, tried different fixes, but nothing worked for more than one cycle.

Money was tight and I had a new found sense of frugalty. I can wash dishes by hand, darn it! I don't need a dishwasher!!

Just one problem.

I. Hate. Washing. Dishes.

So, thanks to the greatest accountant in the world getting us a HUGE tax refund, here it is. My favorite non-horse aquisition.

Mr. Westinghouse. Complete with POWERSCOUR.

Isn't he handsome? I love his blue eyes.

I remember in my 20s I was APPALLED that women got excited about appliances. Sigh. I'm sooo old...

I started my kids early in earning and saving money for college. I gave them choices as to what chores they wanted to do around the house to earn that money. They always chose washing dishes over shoveling manure. Of course, I think, why would anyone in their right mind choose to wash dishes over shoveling manure? Anyway, as a result, I haven't had to wash dishes in years. (You can slap me if you'd like.) However, my son will be leaving for college in two years, so I'd better start practicing.

i call it my magic box. i say, look, you put dirty stuff in there, and press a button, and voila, all clean and shiny! i love my magic box!
