Tonight was a momentous evening in our House on Red Hill. Now that the new sink is in, the new dishwasher is in and the new garbage disposal is in, I made our first dinner in our new kitchen - guacamole and chips. Well, I didn't make the chips, I just poured them into a bowl. But K made margaritas.
It may not sound like a balanced meal but that's not the point. The point is that I put the rind from the lemon down the garbage disposal - my first garbage disposal since we moved nearly six years ago. AND, and, and . . . as I type, THE DISHWASHER IS WASHING DISHES!
Ladies and gentlemen, I have not lived with a working dishwasher since I went away to college during the Carter Administration. All I can say is, I'm happy that I lived long enough to see the day.
The new stove is not yet installed so I'm not sure when any actual cooking will take place. Until then, there's still a half bag of chips.
