Admitting Defeat

To some this may not seem like a big deal, but tonight was the first time in a year I’ve used my dishwasher.  When Philip and I decided to start saving money, we decided to stop using the dishwasher and dryer, and hand-wash all the dishes and line dry our clothes.

Philip asked me if I needed him to do anything and I responded with “Clearing out the dishwasher so I could load it up and run it.” (FYI the dishwasher has been where we’ve stored extra baking dishes.)

He responded with “Are you serious?”

“I don’t know…yes.”

I will admit that it was nice to load it up and only have a fewe things to hand wash because they’re not dishwasher safe. BUT! I feel like I should have sucked it up. My mom warned me this day would come. I just figured it would be after Philip and I had a couple of kids and we were running ragged. No offense to my mommy friends who don’t have dishwashers.

Okay, I’m done with my selfish semi-pathetic rant.

    We started off doing the same thing. I admitted defeat after 2 months. It’s amazing how much time washing dishes takes!
