Our dishwasher is broken
I'd forgotten how much time one can spend washing dishes. I wonder which has a greater environmental impact: washing dishes by hand, which, presumably, uses more water, or washing them in a machine, which probably uses more energy. Anyway, we gotta get our dishwasher fixed, or get a new one. I can't keep this up. There are only so many hours in a day, and I'd rather spend them playing with my kids than washing dishes.
Nevertheless, we're renters, and we're a little timid about asking our landlord to repair or replace this appliance. I remarked to Sara yesterday that even if we had to buy our own new dishwasher it would be cheaper than moving.
