Yes, today I am thankful for the dishwasher.
Normally I hand wash our big pots and pans, not because they are fancy and I'm worried about keeping them up but because they are big. I can either fit in one large pot or three bowls. Obviously my choice is clear.
This week though has been unusually busy with A Christmas Affair and Ross picking up two 12-hour shifts of overtime.
So this morning when I saw that the kitchen sink was still full of dishes, I just said to hell with it. I filled the dishwasher quickly with a few large items and let it do it's magic while I went to work. Coming home to a clean kitchen and clean pots and pans is lovely.
Clearly, The Dishwasher is a gift from God herself.
