Today I did absolutely nothing and it was glorious. Dublin and I spent the day cuddled up together on the couch, avoiding the torrential downpour occurring outside. As e.e. cummings said, “the world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful”. I had absolutely nothing on my to-do list. I read, watched daytime TV, and just relaxed.
I did spend about two hours on the phone with Bosch, manufacturer of my brand-new dishwasher. When it was delivered at the beginning of February, it was broken. It has been broken ever since. I have been going in circles with Bosch and their local repair shops, with no progress getting made. But after today’s endless phone calls, we have finally made some progress. Hopefully tomorrow I will have the new motherboard installed and I will finally have a fully-functioning dishwasher again. Because of my day off, I actually had time to make phone calls during the day and take care of the situation.
