The Ladies Room {overheard, laughs and snickers} dishwasher

 Sometimes a girl just needs to buy herself something!!



   My friend Jennifer has an unique problem....

Seems she recently bought something for her for the house, something that was more for her comfort than "his and hers", something that was a bit pricey, but her husband does not think it is at all necessary. A dishwasher. I normally do not post things for sale, or stuff like that... but I had to make an exception to help a girl-friend out...

Here is her "ad" ....

Dishwasher for sale

 HI  Everyone,

 I feel terrible for asking, but I need your help.
And who other than friends and family, can I really ask for help?
 I urgently need to sell my new dishwasher.

My husband is not happy that I've wasted money on this particular model and insists that I get rid of it ASAP. sigh .....

 So, to keep the peace in our home, please consider making an offer.
  All offers will be considered.

Would make a great gift to yourself!!!

 If not interested, forward to your friends for me: Thanks!

photo below .....
 
    Kind of an expensive model but look at the features!






So what do you think????
Know anyone who could use this dishwasher??

If we can't help a girl-friend, who else can???


                         



I would love to hear your comments on this situation....
should Jen have to give up her dishwasher?

in Memory of Karissa -WW

Karissa Gindling, a beautiful caring person, animal lover and Living Green champion in her blog and business Prissy Green, has passed on to the heavens to shine from above. May she always be remembered for her sweet personality, healthy living advocacy and wanting to make things better for everyone she knew and loved.


She chose not to burden, her tears she hid so well, a smile would always light her face but in her heart not always dwell.... We shall miss you, and pray for all your pain be now lifted and help you fly forever in heaven.



Healing Hugs to all friends and family.

Faythe
