Another Lazy Sunday

On Sundays, I like to sleep in awhile and then watch “CBS News Sunday Morning” while lying in bed. Got up around 8 am and made a couple of poached for me and one for Hiker. Put the sheets and towels into the washing machine and then into the dryer and then Hiker and I headed out to get my lottery tickets for next week. Balanced my check book, made the bed and did a few other things around the house. Kept telling myself I needed to get out for a walk with Hiker, but I just was not in the mood to do so. The weather was hazy again today. Last night I watched “August, Osage County” and was very disappointed. I really thought the movie would be much better than it was because I love Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts, but this movie was not one of the best from either of them. I have now seen most of the movies that had been Oscar nominees and out of all of them, I still think “Gravity” was the best one. So this coming Wednesday, I have a repairman coming out from Sears to look at my dishwasher. It is starting to make weird noises, so I'm thinking that the motor or pump is going out. Back when Ben was alive, he would have just said “let's buy a new one”, but I'm trying to decide what I want to do if they cannot fix the problem...if I should just buy a new one or not. I only use the dishwasher once or twice a month since it's just me now. I'm hoping they can just change the bad part out but since the dishwasher is over 15 years old, I'm wondering if they can do that.


  1. My husband works for Whirlpool & if you got 15 years out of your dishwasher, Kay, I'd say you got your money's worth. *haha*

    I must admit that I don't have a dishwasher. We've been married almost 38 years & I've only had a dishwasher about 5 of those years & only because it came with the house we're in now. Once it kicked the bucket, I had my husband remove it & he built me shelves in that spot instead. I can't imagine needing one since there's only 3 of us in the household now but back when there was 6 of us, I didn't need one either so.... I must not be a dishwasher-type person.

    I don't have a dryer either, believe it or not. I hang all my clothes & bedding, including blankets & curtains & everything. They dry so quick on their own.

    It's a standing joke around here... my husband has worked for a major appliance company for decades & yet I'm the least "mechanized" individual of anyone I know. Go figure!! :-)

    Have a good start to your week~ Andrea

  2. Hope they can fix the problem. Otherwise maybe you should consider a new one.
