Sunday Coffee – Dishwasher, and such

You know you’re a boring grownup when the most exciting thing that happens in a week is getting a new dishwasher. Heh. Okay so it wasn’t the MOST exciting thing, but it was a high point this week! The dishwasher that came with this house had to be at least 20 years old and didn’t clean anything unless you pretty much washed the dishes before putting them in. We got a good Black Friday deal on a new one and it was installed this past Thursday. So we have a decent dishwasher again. Woohoo! Fun adulthood! (Though seriously, it does eliminate a LOT of stress and work, and that’s always good.)

Also from this week: Morrigan was accepted into National Honor Society (this was actually the most exciting thing – I’m looking forward to his induction ceremony this upcoming week), I made it to my writing group for the first time in about a month, we finished getting the Christmas decor up inside, Gavroche learned how to fluff-and-twitch his tail like the squirrels he watches outside, I wore my cute new kitty socks –>, and I finished listening to the audio version of Oathbringer. All highlights, all things to focus on so that I become entirely smushed by the terrible things happening in our country right now. (Or by the idiots who leave stupid comments, one of which riled me up so much this week that I actually posted about it on FB, when I normally try to just walk away for my mental health.)

It’s December. Just a couple more weeks to go until the new year. Breathe.

    I CANNOT WAIT for 2017 to be over. 2018 has to be better, right? Right?

      Ironically, as far as years go, this is probably the best one I’ve had in quite some time. I’ve said that same thing every year – this next year HAS to be better – but they just haven’t really gotten any better for about four years now. I really hope 2018 is the year.

    Congratulations to Morrigan! That IS big news! (Although I totally get your excitement about the new dishwasher. I actually took pictures of my last new appliances because I was so excited about getting them. Ah, adulthood.)

      I think he was more excited than me, probably because when I was in high school, everyone above a certain GPA was automatically in the NHS. There was no competition or application process. I just figured he’d get in because he has good grades. But apparently he had to do an application and essay, and only about 50 out of 150 applicants were accepted. I’m proud of him for taking all the initiative.


  3. I wish we had a dishwasher. I’d take a photo too.

      I grew up handwashing dishes (my mom still doesn’t have a dishwasher) and I wasn’t converted until I had three little ones taking up my time. Since then, I haven’t wanted to go back, haha.

    Way to go, Morrigan!

    Honestly, the excitement over the dishwasher? I get it. I was dancing for days after getting a new coffee table hahaha
