Oh, my this is already a whirlwind week and I haven’t made it through Tuesday. Working on so many things at once can be frazzling. So, I was tempted (and I mean ultra-tempted) to blow off doing the dishes last night and head to bed. Who would know, right?
But I dragged myself back downstairs and washed every last dirty before I did anything else in my mound of things to be done. And you know what? I loved it!
I loved waking up to a clean sink and clean dishes! And no one else saw or noticed, but it brought me peace of mind. It also gave me something to do while the coffee brewed this morning: put away clean dishes. Don’t you love the look of an empty dishwasher?
And again my mind was clearer and I had many a brainstorm whilst scrubbing those dishes. By the way, the shot from above is my dishes from earlier in the day. While I was out, people had the audacity to use dishes! And then we ate dinner and my family insisted we eat our enchiladas on plates – don’t they know I am doing a cleaning challenge?
So the challenge for today is going to sound pretty familiar and you might as well get used to hearing it: Do your dishes again. And if you feel so led, share your pics again. I loved seeing all the pics on the Hope for Homemakers Facebook page yesterday and I definitely saw some encouragement going on in those ranks – thanks, ladies!
Bonus points if it takes you less time this time around. If it doesn’t, stop using plates for at least one meal a day. That will cut down on dish duty! KIDDING!
No seriously bonus points if you leave a comment here telling us what your number one excuse for not doing the dishes is. I want to hear your creative ones, your funny ones, your real ones. If we know what our tricks are we won’t be able to trick ourselves into not doing our chores, right?
