Seriously...

Our dishwasher that we have had for a little over a year is not working and has a flashing error message that means not enough water pressure. Repair man coming Friday. Tried the circuit breaker, didn't make a difference. No other appliances running or using water at the same time. Could there be anyone more unlucky with dishwashers than me? Seriously? Click here if you need me to jog your memory. After I was done crying about it, I cried a little bit more and now I am resigned to unloading the still un-clean dishes from the dishwasher and washing them by hand. I could blame it on the pregnancy hormones (Surprise!! :) But I think I would have cried about it anyway. I am still not over my three month stint of handwashing dishes from last time. I need a bigger sink. And a magic wand. And a magic carpet to fly away from my kitchen on. lol.

Ah well, this too will pass I suppose. I will just think about the pioneers and be grateful for running water...

Congrats!! So happy for you guys!! Well, the dishwasher probs seem a little trivial after that news, but I do understand. Our bad karma is computers. Ours always have virus's or die. We finally got a mac desktop for "the kids" and it is awesome. We shall see...

Anyway, yay for you..when are you due? You make the 4th friend or relative to tell me they are preggo in the last two weeks!

Congrats on the pregnancy! So exciting!

My advice is to go with paper bowls, cups, plates and utensils. Then you only have to wash what you cook in. It sucks about your dishwasher. I'm so sorry!

I am going on two years without a dishwasher. My kitchen is so small it won't fit one! So I feel your pain...and I feel pregnant too! Yea! Your mom said we are due at the same time. I am so happy for you!

Heather said...

Yes ladies, I will be picking up some paper products today :) :)

Oh Emily, I won't complain anymore, two years!! Poor thing. YEAY!!! I am excited and happy for you too!!! :D Congratulations!!

Sad about the dishwasher, but WAY HAPPY about the pregnancy!!! Congratulations! I am loving that you announced that in a post about your dishwasher. HaHa!!

Alice said...

Congrats Heather and Greg! I assumed that when you left a comment on my Elaine post that everyone already knew your exciting news ...
Give me a few months and I'll give you some chipper, happy thoughts about having a third. I can't muster just at the moment.

Rich said...

Congrats you guys!! And the third is awesome, and adds another contender to the wrestling match!

I am so sorry to hear about your lousy dishwasher! Sounds like you need to institute an immediate rinse after eating policy. There is nothing worse than having to hand wash dried on food.

Yay! I'm so happy for you guys! I love that you casually slipped that into your post.

I'm so sorry you have such bad luck with dishwashers. My friend recently started renting a home and didn't realize it didn't have a dishwasher. Boooo.

WHAT??? How funny is it that we keep having our kids around the same time?
I secretly want to be just like you ;) Ok, not so secretly!

Now what are the details?
When are we expecting this little angel to debut?

Robin said...

My first thought was "NOT AGAIN!" So I didn't need my memory jogged. I'm so sorry! What's the deal? I hope these come with warrantees.

Ileen said...

I love you Heather!! Thats all I have to say about that.

David and Stephanie said...

Ahh, I'm so behind! Congratulations on a new little one!! With kids as cute as yours you just have to have more :)
