All is right with the world again. We installed the new dishwasher Saturday. Call me lazy but I tell ya, getting all into cooking everynight at the same time your dishwasher bites the dust is SO not good. I was washing 3 loads of dishes a day. Insane. The old dishwasher was apparently a lemon. It was 4 years old. Brand new when we bought the house. That seems very short-lived but whatever.
My sink is back to empty almost All the time now. Life is Good :)
