When it rains, it pours

My mom always said this when either the bills were piling up or things were breaking down around the house. Well for us, its been the latter, which of course causes stress in the first category. Our dishwasher has been broken for over a week now. After waiting on our home warranty company for almost a week, we went to our local home improvement store last week to order a new one, just to find out they didn't have the model we wanted in stock so it had to be ordered. We are praying it comes in tomorrow and then hope to have it installed by the end of the week. While at the store, we decided to replace the faucet in our upstairs bathroom that has been leaking for a couple of months now. The leaking has slowly gotten worse and our water bill had slowly been growing as well, so we decided it was the time to replace it. What we'd thought would be an easy replacement, of course was more complicated than we thought it would be, but Matt persevered and we now have a lovely new faucet.
