Last night my dishwasher shot an arc of electrical sparks across the kitchen and died. It is always such a bummer when appliances go out, the car breaks down, etc. The unexpected expenses are so annoying.
It did not seem so bad at the time though, because my family and I were sitting around the dinning room table, eating the most delicious sirloin steaks hot off the grill, along with baked potatoes, salad---you know, that meal lulls you into a hypnotic state of mouth watering bliss. And, to top it off, the Thunder game was on, and Oklahoma was winning. After my husband turned the breakers off, in order to avoid an electrical fire, we just went back to eating and cheering.
Reality set in this today, when Monty grabbed the check book, and left for town to buy a new one. I was just glad that I have two, healthy hands to wash dishes the old fashioned way this morning.
A wonderful, loving family, enough to eat everyday, and being healthy enough to work. There is always something to be thankful for!
Hope everyone has a great weekend~
