Of course!

Why do things come in waves?

I'm not going to say these are the bad terrible things that change peoples lives, no I wont complain that much, because I am thankful that my family and life in general has stayed in pretty good tact these 27 years of my life.
But it's those annoying things that all seem to go wrong at the same time.

I'm whining about my appliances here...

Our dishwasher has been on the fritz for a while now, hardly washing or you could say, making much dirtier, the dishes that go in.  So I'm hand-washing my dishes.  No big deal, it's just annoying.  This family goes through quite a lot of dishes in a small period of time, and devoting over an hour each day to dishes isn't on my agenda.

Then, last night, the wonderful hubby decided to make some yummy pizza...{He's the pizza man around here and has pretty much perfected the pizza.}  So, he opens the oven door and discovers the glass on the door has shattered.  It must have cracked the day before when I used the broiler or perhaps on Sunday when he turned the self cleaner on, but either way, it's unusable.

We were hoping these things would last us a year or 2 and that we'd slowly replace them with stainless steel.  And now they are both gone and it's not in our budget right now to replace them with what we want.  So now, we either have to replace them with used, probably near breaking, over priced things from craigslist or wait it out.

And we don't even have a truck!

Thanks for listening to me whine.

Oh an I have a mouse in my outside Laundry Room!

Hopefully things are going better in your neck of the woods!

It may be hard to wait it out, but we found our dish washer on CL and it is SUPER nice and we were able to get it for only $40- just because a man was changing out his for stainless. Then we found our fridge the same way and we only paid $100 for it! Just keep your eye out every day and always offer lower. You can always find a deal, just depends on how long you are willing/able to wait. Hope things get better!

The used dishwasher Garry got has been working great and I think it was less than $50. If you need it you can use our toaster oven it will bake most anything.
