It didn’t work…

I have nothing else to say…


I wish, I wish, I wish I were a fish…

Well, the title of this post is completely irrelevant, except that I have had it up to here with things not working right around here.  Seriously, enough is enough!

So our dishwasher has not been working properly.  We basically wash everything before we put it in there, and yet it comes out dirty.  How can it go in clean, and come out dirty?!?!?! (And no, Mom, I did not overload the dishwasher nor was I overzealous in my crowding of the dishes.  I even ran a load with only two glasses in there, and they were still dirty!)

SO….we took the dishwasher apart.  And boy oh boy, was it nasty in there!  Years of caked on detergent, or hard water build up, or what have you.  I don’t know, but it was serious!

What’s that?  You think we are so reckless to take apart an appliance such as the dishwasher, which we have no working knowledge of?  Oh I misunderstood you, you said you think we are brave.  I know, we are brave.

You can see some of the nasty below.

This piece, which is affectionately known as the chopper, had paper towel or something similar caked all over it.

Well now we are running two cups of vinegar through the hottest cycle, which was recommended in the user manual for cleaning.  Stay tuned for the results.

Hooray for my “new” fridge!

Finally found a fridge!  Not the side-by-side that I first wanted, but I love this fridge! 


(Lara really likes it, too!)


Hooray! A new stove for me!

Just the stove I wanted!  Hip-hip, hooray!
