Right now my dad is installing our bright shiny new dishwasher. How exciting. I will miss doing all the dishes though. I used to hate doing dishes but I've come to realize how fun and exciting it can be. Our sink is pretty much in the center of our house. While sitting there with my hands in suds I can hear my family all around me. I can hear my dog going in and out of our screen door, one of her favorite past times. I can hear Julia playing her guitar and my parents playing cards at the table. And plus, who doesn't enjoy have their hands in warm's pretty much one of the best things ever.

Our whole house fan is almost a definition of summer. As soon as it gets cool outside, my mom cranks it on and lets it run all night. It is one of the loudest things I have ever heard. Since it is right outside my (Julia's) bedroom door, I can't hear anything else in the house while I'm in there. It's like I'm in my own little world. Plus, since it's so loud, it puts me right to sleep...wierd I know. It's like sleeping on an airplane or something.
