Glorious invention

the glorious invention

Giuseppe and I have put a deposit on a new place to live, begining August 31st.  It was a difficult decision, as we are very happy in our current residence, but decided it was time to go for a number of reasons.  One, the new place is very close to Giuseppe’s job, which will virtually eliminate his commute.  Also, I am being transferred to Laguna Beach, so my commute would be will be longer no matter what, considering the tourist traffic there.  And lastly, of course, we are re-budgeting in preparation for baby!  (The new place is less costly.)

Last night we were discussing our plans to furnish and organize the new apartment.  I brought up the fact that we will need to purchase a new refrigerator, and we were discussing our options.  This segued into the fact the new place does not have a dishwasher, which is an appliance that Giuseppe has grown to adore.  He wants to purchase a portable dishwasher for the kitchen, but I argued that this is a bit of a frivolous expense, as it will be only the two of us and the baby.  We don’t exactly dirty an excessive amount of dishes each day.  (And I plan to nurse, using minimal bottles.)

His reply was this: “I don’t care if it is a bit expensive; the dishwasher is a GLORIOUS INVENTION.”  How could I counter that?

    I agree with Giuseppe, the dishwasher is indeed a GLORIOUS INVENTION! I would choose it over my oven and various other appliances!

    You think you don’t have many dishes now, and that washing dishes for 3 isn’t that bad, but wait until that includes bottles and all sorts of other misc. baby items!! You will thank him for it later trust me!!

    Indeed, the dishwasher is a “Glorious Invention.” Best of luck with your move and can’t wait to see you post pics of your new place.
