I hope you find a nice, reasonably-priced dishwasher.

Thanks.

the drummer is at it again , disturbing my sleep. starts about ten thirty p.m and went to two in the morning. since i don't want to walk about that late at night, i can't figure out where it is coming from so i can call the cops. i am just going to buy some ear plugs. i have enough trouble getting to sleep without that racket. lots of flashbacks kept me awake as well. somehow they break through the drugs. this to will pass when jan. is over, i hope.

Way to go Kayelle.

I tried nicotine patches about six years ago. They gave me a rash that got worse and worse until the pharmacist told me to quit using them.

We are having a mild winter so far. But, still, 3,500 balloons at xmas. And me not working full time. Darn! Thankfully, we have a bit tucked away in a rainy day account. Big bummer. I may have to go and get a real job sooner than planned.
Our furnace quit a few weeks ago, luckily we live in a townhouse in NC, so space heaters are doing the trick. Our system is 27 years old and we decided to just tear the whole heat and a/c system out and start new, if you hear a loud sucking noise, that's our bank account draining, lol!

I have a dishwasher that never fails or quits. Right on the end of each arm.

My dishwasher works, but I find that doing it by hand gets the dishes cleaner.

I told my daughter one day that one thing I had always wanted a dishwasher. But the kids needed things like shoes and clothes more. A few years later for my 50th birthday, she collected money from the other four kids and I had my dishwasher. When it finally gave up the good fight, I never bothered to have it fixed. I gave it to a second hand store for $25.00 so they could take it and fix it for resale. And I went back to what I do best. Washing dishes by hand. I am now careful what I wish for.

I agree with you!

I have always done them by hand and I enjoy it. I always have felt that it took just as much time to get them into the machine as it did to wash them so I might as well just dive in and do it, job over!

The first time I lived in an apartment with a dishwasher I thought I would give it a try! I did not have any of the appropriate detergent so I gave it a good squirt of washing up liquid and hit the button! In a few minutes I noticed a blob of suds about eight inches high heading towards the living room. I waded in and shut off the machine, then I began scooping suds into the sink. This continued each time I turned the machine on for about three days. I felt like I was trapped in an episode of I Love Lucy.

LOL!! Do you know I was born and raised in her hometown?

Speaking of appropriate detergent... I can't seem to find one that doesn't leave a residue. I have tried just about all of them. When I do them by hand, everything is shiny, squeaky clean.
