Happy Dance

Today is definitely a happy dance day. Steve may or may not join me, but I hope he does because he's pretty cute when he shakes it. Why all the dancing?

Reason #1: Today is Steve's last day of finals. One quarter down -- 11 more to go.

Reason #2: Let me introduce you to this lovely lady:



If you can't tell, it's a portable dishwasher (These places are ancient and don't have hook-ups). We snagged her for a mere $40 from a couple down the street who are moving this week. She's not pretty, but she's a hard worker and will definitely come in handy on days when I mess up every dish, pot, pan and utensil in my kitchen. She needs a name, though. Any suggestions?

Charlie and I have been thinking...he came up with the name Fluffy, but I think you should go with Spot... or Bertha... or something...

I am intensely jealous...you're lucky you live so far away or I would have to steal Bertha. I have not had a dishwasher for 5 months now and it's been rough so I am happy for you, yet sad and bitter. ;)

Bertha it is (thanks Sharon :)). It's a perfect name for a large, homely woman who helps you around the house and gives great hugs. I think I might actually hug her. (I'll give her one for you, Kristin :))

I'm so excited for your new dishwasher! We have a portable one too (after living her 2 months without one) and it's the best thing ever! Sad to think a portable dishwasher could bring such excitement, but it does!

Nice! A dishwasher is a dishwasher to me. I completely know how you feel about Steve finishing his first quarter. Except for us, it's one semester down, two and a half years to go!
