A major event occurred yesterday: our dishwasher broke. The technician, funny guy, told us that there was no point in attempting to resuscitate it. He actually called it a corpse. The new dishwasher arrives on Monday. Until then, the corpse will sit in our kitchen mocking us while we (I, most likely) wash dishes by hand. And tomorrow a couple of Stefano’s colleagues are coming over for dinner, is this typical or what? We planned this dinner last week when we had a fully functional machine. The joke’s on us.
How did we ever manage before the dishwasher era? Sometimes I wonder. Yet my family never owned one; we always washed dishes by hand. I never had a dishwasher when I lived alone, either. And it was only after several months of living together that Stefano finally suggested we buy a dishwasher. A DISH-WASH-ER???, I replied, somewhat disdainfully, what would we EVER want with something like THAT?
Eight years later I can barely live without one. I feel lost.
So I have chosen to do nothing much this afternoon. No research, no housework well, except I need to HAND wash the dishes that have piled up since yesterday sigh! 😉
My test results haven’t arrived yet. Next week, probably. I don’t have high hopes for them, to be honest, since I took them during a rather stressful period, when my teaching job had barely begun (stress stress stress!), plus I remember feeling tired all the time. I hope to be proved wrong, of course!
One last note in answer to a couple of questions. I haven’t tried BioCurcumax (which is the same as the Super Bio-Curcumin sold by LEF) yet, so I don’t have an opinion on it. The idea of mixing curcumin with the essential oil of turmeric, though, is a splendid one. That’s all I can say about it right now. Sorry, it’s not much!
