I'll admit, the first few nights without a dishwasher were kind of "fun"- I thought back to my Home Ec. Days when we were actually taught how to do dishes by hand and found a sense of fulfillment of a dirty job well done.
But now that we are going on a week without a dishwasher....losing my mind!!
Fortunately our new dishwasher is coming today!! We spent a lot of time researching but when it came right down to it, I didn't care what brand of dishwasher we bought, so long as it wasn't the "Mom" brand.
