Several appliances later, we are flat broke. We went out on Saturday to buy a washing machine and were unsuccessful... mainly because we brought the boys with us. So, Sunday, we decided to do it again, mostly because we are glutton for punishment. And, surprisingly, when you set your expectations so very low, you have nothing to do but come out ahead... and with a refridgerator. Uh, so, we got sidetracked. But it is a great fridge and we DID need one. It was on the list. The washer was first, then the fridge. Then the dishwasher and then the dryer which should take care of all our major appliances - unless we can't figure out how to get our a/c to work before it gets hot.
Anyhow, after spending a good amount at our local home improvement store on our shiny new fridge, we decided to go celebrate father's day and go out to lunch. While at lunch, GaMommy informed us that there was a sale on a washer at our local major electronics store, so we sent the boys home with her to nap (she is wonderful!) and went to check out the sale. Unfortunately, the sale was really good and the washer was amazing. And, most unfortunately, the dryer was also on sale so we got both. YIKES! We spent the rest of the afternoon diverting our attention away from our bone dry bank account and just relaxed and did nothing. Just as a father's day should be!
So, after emptying the dishwasher and having to rewash 25% of the dishes, I think we need to win the lottery to increase the likelihood that a new dishwasher finds its way to our house sometime soon.
It was a good father's day and we are so thankful to have such a wonderful Daddy to take care of us. Daddy, you are wonderful and we love love love you so much.
