I’m sitting in my relatively clean kitchen, waking up with a cup of coffee, recovering from the house full of relatives yesterday. My in-laws were over for Father’s Day, and we had steaks on the grill.
(Insert cute toddler story here) Emmy just stuck her fork under her arm, and said, “Beep!” I could not figure out what she was doing. I had just microwaved breakfast for her…was she pretending to be a microwave?
She stuck her fork under her other arm. “Beep!”
“You do it, Mommy!” So I stuck my hand under my arm, and said, “Beep!” (I was not going to use my fork!) Emmy said, “No, naked Mommy!”
OK, now I knew what she was doing…no, I was not going to get naked in my kitchen…she wanted me to put my fork under my bare underarm…she was pretending the fork was a thermometer.
Are you wondering how my kitchen is clean after having company yesterday? I sure am….
Remember my dishwasher woes? I had ordered a Kitchen Aid dishwasher a couple of years ago, and it was too tall for our available space due to the Pergo floor the previous homeowners had installed. The deliveryman told me that the higher end models were shorter, and since our dishwasher was still working, I postponed looking for a new, more expensive model.
To make a long story boring, last weekend we went shopping and discovered Maytag makes a shorter dishwasher! So for about the same price as the Kitchen Aid, we were able to have a Maytag delivered and installed last week!
Last night, Ed and I were so happy we had our new dishwasher. Serving steaks on paper plates just didn’t appeal to me. So we stuck to real plates, but with our new dishwasher cleaning up seemed like a piece of cake. Hurray!

Congratulations, happy Monday!Recent blog:=- FOR YOUR TEARS
It is so funny the things that kids say and want us to do. I swear, they crack me up!Congrats on the dishwasher. Hubby and I got one about a year ago and love it. The only problem is Hubby won't read the directions on how to load it, so the dishes do not get as clean as I would like. And he doesn't look to see if they are clean before throwing them in the cupboards and drawers. Nothing like pulling out a fork and finding crusted…something or other….on it. Yuk!(Also, I shouldn't say this, but what is with the first comment? Um….not much to it, huh?)Recent blog:=- A little bit of this, a little bit of that for Father's Day
I was a little puzzled about that first comment myself…. :)I first realized our old dishwasher was kaput when I kept pulling crustybowls out of the cabinets, and they stayed crusty when I ran them throughthe dishwasher again. Yuck is right!!
oh lovely dishwasher! i have a kitchen aid dishwasher that i love almost as much as i love my children. in fact sometimes i try to plan my exit strategy if a fire breaks out in the house – forget about photo albums or beloved pets – how am i going to get my dishwasher through the front door?
