We just replaced our ancient fridge and dishwasher. It is amazing to me. I can now see what is in my fridge. Not to mention I can stalk it with more than a couple days of food (I have teens). It also makes ice and gives me filter cold water! Imagine...no more ice trays. The dishwasher actually cleans the dishes and I can barely hear it working. I feel like I am finally in the 21 century. :) Still, I can't help to think....as we get older the odder the things we get happy about.
