My Dishwasher Wasn’t Done with Me

Last week, with my blogging limited in the throes of NaNoWriMo, I talked about my dishwasher, and specifically how much I hate emptying the dishwasher.

Well, apparently I hurt its feelings. Terminally.

Shortly thereafter, I was running it through empty for a periodic clean when I walked into the kitchen to discover foam oozing out of the bottom panel. Now I may not be a technical genius, but I’ve seen enough of the world to know that liquid oozing out of a part of a machine that is supposed to be water-tight isn’t exactly a good thing.

I tried to get to whatever obstruction there was that wouldn’t let the water drain, but that dishwasher would probably fetch a pretty penny on the antiques roadshow, and it was not easily disassembled. New dishwasher it was. Especially given it happened during Black Friday week, the traditional time of year when dishwashers are begging for new homes.

So today is the day, and I eagerly awaited the quick switch-out. I mean, I already have one, right?

Um. Yeah.

So as I type there are two men stretching their ingenuity to the absolute limit trying to make it happen. Very kindly.

Hopefully very shortly I will have a functioning dishwasher, and if you’ve ever wondered why the installers are late with your appliance, well, it’s me.

And what of NaNoWriMo? Well, I’m not done yet. There have been other distractions along the way, worse distractions, and while I’m not behind, at the rate I was going, I should be done by now. Oh well.

Hopefully I will see you all at the finish line. With plenty of clean dishes in hand. Which would make it difficult to type.

    Inanimate objects eh! And our parliament wanted us to accept that animals weren’t sentient beings and here you are demonstrating how much you’ve hurt your dishwasher’s feelings …

    Well done on your NaNo-ing. I haven’t yet. I’ve written about it for next week’s post. It’s been a useful exercise. But I am working like mad (except for right this very moment) on my NLP training. Exams – both spoken – take place this weekend. I’ve had a cold/cough thing, lost my voice, got it back but now cough whenever I try to speak more than a few sentences. And let’s side step the lack of sleep issue. Tomorrow I’ll be laden down with scripts and flash cards, but also cough mixture, cough sweets, tissues, Manuka honey, together with as much positivity and fakin’ it till I make it attitude as I can muster. Next year I’ll shoot for NaNoWriMo – it can’t be any worse, right? 😉

    • YOU POOR THING!!! That is so much in one month, that you made NaNoWriMo progress at all is amazing. I wish you the very, very, very best of luck on your exams, they’re stressful enough without being sick. But it sounds like you’ve taken everything in hand to show that cold what’s what.

      I think there’s a lot of value in just trying, whether or not you finish NaNo. ESPECIALLY with everything you have happening.

      Feel better soon!!
