Everything we are eating this week is from our freezer
and it will be mighty tasty too!
This is a good week to have a major savings on groceries
because we will be buying a new dishwasher.
Actually, I will be buying a scratch and dent dishwasher, I think.
I don't wanna pay new. lol
Yes, our dishwasher has died a slow death.
I say slow because it was generous enough
to flood underneath our kitchen floor first.
A nice, simple flooding of the kitchen would have been too kind.
No, it was a progressive thing.
One day last week I am walking in the kitchen in my bare feet
and I notice the wood floor is kind of lightly wavy.
Sort of.. warped.
I thought that was curious.
I hadn't noticed it before,
but maybe it was the humidity.
Or maybe it had been like that and I had just not noticed it.
A day or so later, I had Rob take off his shoes and walk across it.
Yep, it was definitely not right.
We discussed whether there had been any wetness or anything.
There had not.
We were confused but like idiots, we dropped it.
The next day, I laid a towel in front of the dishwasher.
If it were leaking, I reasoned, then the towel would be damp.
The next morning, however, the towel was dry.
I was so puzzled!
A day or so later, Rob is in the basement when he starts yelling.
Yes indeed, the dishwasher has been flooding, UNDER the floor
and into the basement (which thank God is unfinished.
So, there's my little sob story about my dishwasher.
After I do this entry, I'll be calling our homeowner's insurance
to have them come out and take a look at the floor.
