Just glancing back through the blog, I noticed a couple of things I really wanted to share with you, but life happens and they slip on by without showing up here. The first one is my new dishwashers! I have been so frustrated with the last ones we got that when the heating element went out in one, my sweetie decided to buy me two new stainless ones as an early Mothers' Day gift.
They are beautiful and they seem to work well; the only problem is that they are different and loading them has a learning curve. What I used to be able to do in about 3 minutes now takes me 15. I was pretty excited the day I dumped my silverware drawer in there and for the first time in quite a while, every single utensil came out clean.
Second thing I wanted to share is about Crafty. Last week she was elected Mayor of the Youth City Council! Neither one of us really thought she might win, but I told her it would be a good experience to be part of the election process and she should prepare her speech and try her best.
In typical Crafty fashion, she sent me this text right after they announced the winner. "I won, and now I feel bad for Kaleigh (her friend she was running against)." My sweet girl wasn't worried about the burden she had just shouldered, all she worried about were the feelings of her cute friend...
... and if I could pick her up a few minutes early.
