Michael and I have been married for 9 years, 1 month and 22 days. Up until now everything has been going great. In the last month, though, things have started falling apart. No, not our marriage.....our wedding presents. Things are literally falling apart and breaking.
It's actually amazing that we haven't had much of anything break before this point, considering we got married in Tucson and had to take all of our stuff to Tempe, then moved to Colorado, moved back from Colorado into an apartment, then moved twice more into two different houses. Plus we live with a 3 year old (who used to be 2 and 1). In all those moves the only thing that broke was a champagne flute (and it didn't shatter- the top separated from the bottom and my dad glued them back together.) I do have mad packing skills though. In all of our day to day life I think we've broken 1 wine glass, 1 bowl and 1 water glass. Oh, and the glass lid of a skillet. That was a bad day. Then I cut the hell out of my foot on a shard of that glass.
These are the recent victims:
#1. This glass pitcher
Cracked- see it down by the handle?
#2. This glass pitcher
Cracked- all the way down and across the bottom
#3. My whisk- the top part just fell out of the handle. Michael shoved it back in and then it fell apart again.
Truth be told it was really my fault that the pitchers cracked. I made iced coffee for Joni's shower and I was rushing too much and poured too hot coffee in them. Had I let the coffee cool just a wee bit more they wouldn't have cracked. I take no blame for the whisk unless you want to blame excessive whisking over the last 9 years.
Oh well, I guess I'll just have to buy new stuff. Poor me. You know how much I hate buying dishes of any sort. It's not like I've looked longingly at glass pitchers over the last 7ish years and wished I could buy them but didn't because I already had 2 perfectly fine glass pitchers.
Oh darn. Guess I'll head to Pier 1.
P.S. Though technially not broken, our coffee maker has seen better days. It was a wedding shower gift, so it's older than the other stuff by 2 months. Guess I will also be burdened with a trip to Target or Bed, Bath and Beyond.
