What would you do for a dishwasher?
A fellow expat and Mommy blogger, Stay at Home Babe, got me thinking about dishes. Hell, life got me thinking about dishes. Living in Rio de Janeiro means I do not have a dishwasher, not even the human one. Well, I can't lie, I do have a maid twice a week who absorbs my dish washing and other household duties. I love my Mondays and Thursdays and I love my maid!
Anyway, there are two things that take a lot of my time and energy. One, as you have obviously guessed, is washing dishes. The other is...
Who am I kidding? I have a huge list! I'm a mother of 2 kids under 5 and I don't have the typical daily or live in help. I dream of pimping my house. Screw date nights, nice clothes, and jewelry. I want appliances! I want a dishwasher, dryer, water heater (not these damn gas ones!), central air, and a garbage disposal... oh that last one got me a little hot just thinking about it.
I think I've come up with a reasonable argument for buying these items. It's one I think my husband will relate to on a personal level. If I should get them, I will be so happy and have so much more free time that he'll probably get laid daily for several months. Hell, I'll make it a year and throw in twice weekly nooners. Oh yes, we're talking sexual bribery. Is there any other kind in a marriage?
What appliances would you sleep with your husband/partner/live-in to get?
