Hurray, no divorce!

We got a new dishwasher yesterday. The old one broke. Neither myself nor the Vol-in-Law are big on chores, but we really don't like hand washing dishes. There were several discussions about turns and who had completed a higher proportion of the washing up. These were colorful discussions.

The Vol-in-Law said that the absence of the dishwasher proved how fragile was the veil between civilization and barbarity.

I said - are you going to dry those?


Anyway, the new dishwasher is installed. Thus far I don't like it as much as the old one - except in one key area. It works.

Ah, the pleasures of civilized life.

It has now been 4 years since I've:

used a dishwasher
had a garbage disposal
had a clothes dryer

My life is so primitive!

On the plus side, I do have a washing machine in the apartment, which is a big step up from my Nashville life.
