Ever wondered what life would be like without a Dishwasher? Wait, a Toaster too? It's terrible. Both Jared and I declare that we hate doing dishes, especially by hand. The dish situation at our apartment reminds me of camping where you always conserve and re-use every dish possible before washing it. It's kind of gross, but I'm telling you it beats the alternative of cleaning even more dishes.
As for the toaster... We both love and adore Costco bagels, mostly the cheese flavor, and were fortunate to pick some up yesterday. We actually visited a Costco in Kirkland, the hometown of the great enterprise. which is kind of cool for all of you Costco lovers. So after we got the bagels we realized we have no toaster. My creative husband is heating the oven to broil our bagels! Despite the fact that broiling a bagel might take 15 minutes, it's a great alternative to owning a toaster.
