I HATE DOING THE DISHES. This card sent to me by my mother-in-law hangs on my fridge to reinforce that fact every day. I think the greeting card writer must have overheard me muttering these words one day and thought, “Hey! That would make a funny mother’s day card!” I’m expecting royalties.
Anyway, yesterday I walked into the kitchen to yet another sink full of dishes…
Wanna know the weird part? They’re clean. Yes, I almost always have a sink full of CLEAN dishes. While I hate doing dishes SO much, I usually manage to get them washed. But for some reason I have a mental block when they reach this state. I just can’t bring myself to grab a dish towel, dry them off, and put them away. It’s weird. I know.
Whenever we have guests, they’re just confused. I invariably find dirty dishes stacked on top of the clean ones. Because, honestly, have you ever seen a sink full of clean dishes? Am I the only one? Nate hates it. But after nearly 10 years of marriage, this is one battle he’s given up on. Smart man.
And if a sink full of clean dishes is NOT the bane of your kitchen existence…I’m dying to know what is. Fess up!
