OK, a man in a huge truck delivered the dishwasher today. As much as I would have liked to play the pregnancy card and beg him to bring the thing up the stairs, this was not possible. Because it was only one guy, and the dishwasher definitely takes two people to carry anywhere. In fact, he could barely get it into our garage, probably because his huge truck had NO RAMP and he had NO DOLLY or any other moving equipment. He dragged and end-over-ended the box into my garage, and I wouldn't be surprised if I am once again in possession of a broken dishwasher, after all that.

I know I'm not a very good cook, but have I committed sins in the kitchen equal to this kind of appliance karma? Really??

Sorry about this seemingly-neverending diswasher saga. I hope it all works out in the end.

This was posted to one of my pregnancy messageboards today and I thought since you're in the Chicago area it might be worth a shot...

"When I went to my Old Navy store to purchase some maternity jeans they gave me a little sheet of paper for an Old Navy Maternity Fit Clinic. The paper reads "If you are 4-9 months pregnant, come share your thoughts on maternity fashion." So I called and qualified for the study. I have to go in to my store on a Saturday, try on some clothes, they take a couple of pictures, and then I get my $60 Old Navy Gift Card!!! Can't beat that!

This is only good at the following locations:

34th & Broadway, New York, NY

Orland Park, Chicago, IL

Hillsdale Mall, San Mateo, CA
