Here's the setup. I'm on my way home from Lowe's at Marion with my husband on Friday. He had a four day weekend. Diann calls (she's the email police and I'd forgotten to let her know I would be away from my computer.)
Me: Di, I got a dishwasher.
Di: Oh that's nice.
Me: No, you don't get it. I got a DISHWASHER. It was the first thing (after the water softener) Dave said he'd put in the house after we bought it. We've been there 10 years with no dishwasher and I finally got one!
Di: You've been washing dishes for ten years by hand? YOU, A FAMOUS AUTHOR?
Amazing isn't it? These hands that type out scenes where people die are also used for the mundane task of washing dishes. LOL Now mind you, that dishwasher is sitting in my garage until Dave gets it in (he's started the process so I expect him to finish it tonight) but the knowledge that I actually HAVE one keeps surprising me. I have a dishwasher. I have a dishwasher. I HAVE A DISHWASHER!!
The excitement of it may carry me right through this next book I'm writing and get it written in record time. LOL But now I need some advice. You who have been lucky enough to stay atop the advances in dishwashing science, what's the best dishwasher soap?
