1. A new dishwasher.
2. A new floor because old dishwasher (2 years old, I might add) has a plastic part that decided it was done working. Laminate wood floor + small amount of water hanging out under the floorboard = curling boards.
3. A contractor to do all the labor, because Rick is getting a new knee on the 30th.
4. Soap. To wash out our mouths when we found out how much it will cost to get a decent dishwasher that does NOT have plastic parts.
I suppose it could be much worse. We could have to get a new roof, or new siding, or something equally expensive and unsexy. The fact that we even HAVE a dishwasher is a luxury some don't have. I quite remember the days of my first house, when the kitchen was cute as a button but dishwasher-less.
And oh hey, this totally solved the "what do you want?", "nothing, what do YOU want?" question of gift giving between me and Rick.
Anyone else getting a Christmas present like this?
