      When DH and me moved into our house last year we had a

      built in dishwasher. We had one in our apartment as

      well. I grew up in the 70’s where my parents could

      not afford a dishwasher and so I got used to not

      having. I rarely use a dishwasher. Only when we have

      a holiday family gathering and even then, I rather use

      my hands. We have basic cable too. I don’t watch as

      much t.v. as I used to. Its not because we cannot

      afford it, it’s simply that my needs have changed as I

      have gotten older. I think sometimes when we have too

      much choice, people want more. I just limit my

      choices and then I find I do better with less. wrote:
