That time I struggled with domesticity....and Giveaway Winner Announced!

So remember how I told you all the story about my bubbling dishwasher? Well the apartment people supposedly came and fixed it but when I ran it after they came.....this happened...

Yikes! This was not so much fun to clean up and I was pretty much soaked.

The next day I hustled down to the office to place a complaint repair order. I have a hard time being "stern" or "strict" when it comes to things like this but I may have dropped a sassy "I don't think they did anything to the dishwasher besides leave me a note telling me not to use dish soap which I obviously know" in the conversation somewhere. I even went and bought a new kind of dishwasher detergent.

So when I came home from work the other night, I saw a repair order note sitting on my counter. The first words I saw were:

"There is nothing wrong with the dishwasher...."

"Really?" I thought to myself....but as I kept reading, it kind of all started making sense....."The cleaning wand

Yeah these guys:

(...that I tend to throw in the dishwasher......)

"was filled with dish soap and was causing the bubbles."

Geez......sometimes I struggle with domesticity.
