Our new dishwasher arrived.
We've been almost a year without one, and while I've lived in dishwasher-less places before without too many problems, it seemed to be such a hassle living here in Saskatoon without one. Something to do with a lifestyle that includes more home cooking and more than just one person.
It's running its first load right now. I can't even contain myself. Bliss. My whole life has just changed.
Now ... when we have more than 2 other people staying here with us, we won't have to resort to paper plates to maintain our sanity (shhhh ... don't tell the environmentalists, to be fair, I only did it when there were 8 or more people ...).
