GRRRRRRRR....POP.....HHHHHSSSSSS

Do, you recognize this sound?????

That is the sound of a dying dishwasher.....I know because I heard it Sunday night. The "HHHHHSSSSSSSSS" was the wisps of black smoke issuing forth from the edge of the dishwasher. So, I am back to doing dishes by hand. Luckily, I haven't forgotten how. But, I have a question. Does Satan have a hold on my household appliances???????

You need to think of it as an extra opportunity to burn some calories. These labor saving devices don't require us to use our muscles to do much of the work. So here is my suggestion: Breathe deep and inhale that fragrant dish detergent, let the scent completely be absorbed and then scrub...2, 3, 4. Rinse...2, 3, 4! I am sure you can even figure out a way to burn more calories as you dry the dishes. Maybe you could do some squats or something as you stand at the sink:D

No wonder you were late for playgroup! You had to wash dishes by hand and then blog about it!

Oh, I feel your pain! Hopefully, your solution will come more quickly than ours did. Two months was a long time to wash dishes by hand for a large family! I am so sorry for you! (Despite Sylli's optimistic calorie burning perspective!)

Thanks in part to Shane, we now have a dishwasher. If you are ever in need of a break or sick or whatever, please call and you can use our dishwasher. (We run our load at night, so daytime is a good time.) That is a truly sincere offer -- don't be too worried to take us up on it! Believe me, it is a life saver option at times!

Um, yes, Satan does have a hold on your appliances. Beware of the toaster! And I would keep a safe distance from your microwave, too. Just a friendly warning.

Sylli forgot the benefits of clean fingernails. OK- we're weird we ALWAYS wash by hand. And we do have a dishwasher. Hmmm---- (that's why I let Bari wash to his hearts content).
I'd feel bad for you, but you have 2 dryers.

What Mama said - in all seriousness.

Scrub 2.3.4.....Rinse 2,3,4.... Squat 2.3.4.... Gasp 2,3,4... Cry 2,3,4... Wipe sweat from forehead 2,3,4.... Oh baby we're losing pounds now!!!!

You guys are so funny. I'm definitely giving the microwave and the toaster a wide berth right now.
