I hate washing dishes. I don’t mind vacuuming, doing laundry and a list of other household chores, but dishes are just annoying. This week I took a holiday from doing dishes. It wasn’t an intentional holiday. It just kind of happened. I had a cold and I just didn’t feel like doing the dishes. I’ve also been super busy with the end of the school year. So, the dishes just piled up for 5 days. Today is Day 5 and the pile is pretty high. In fact, there are no clean dishes left. I get some really brilliant ideas when I’m lying on the couch moaning about things. I figured out that I could just get rid of the dishes and start all over with new dishes. Problem Solved. So, that is what I did. I put all the dishes into a large trash bag and hauled them outside to the bin. The kitchen sink looked great. I was feeling pretty good about my plan. It was brilliant except for one thing. I’m not rich and I really don’t have the money to buy all new dishes. So, I went back to the bin and reclaimed the mess.
The dishes are now washed, and I’m headed to the store to buy paper plates and bowls. I may not be rich, but I think I can afford a few little luxuries during the last two weeks of school.
