An Hour in My Kitchen

One hour. Sixty minutes. 3600 seconds.

If I were to do spend just that amount of time for today, I might get through the dishes in my sink, the pots on the stove, and the piles of paper on the counter.

I have often wondered how it can get so out of hand when there is only one person living in a household. Perhaps, it is because we do not see our own clutter as clearly as we see another person's. That is, until the piles are so high that we cannot stand it any longer!

Thankfully, I have a dishwasher into which I can load the dishes. It will do the dishes. I just need to take care of the pots and skillet by hand and put them away.

The papers? They may just have to wait.

I'll confess that paper clutter -- my own -- drives me wild, and yet, I have several piles of paper that need sorted and filed. Every time I think I'll get to it, something more interesting catches my attention -- and it doesn't take much to be more interesting than going through paperwork.

My dishes are the same way, I just cant talk myself into doing them until I am out of something. With just 2 of us in the house that can take some time lol

I hate doing the dishes! Although, these past few days, I've been trying to live by the moment and washing dishes hasn't been that bad.

My kids take turns in washing the dishes while hubby and I take turns in the morning.

Those papers are waiting and waiting at my house! Dishes I don't mind doing and if I don't hubby does.

I don't have a dishwasher, and I just hate seeing dishes pile up in the sink. That's the reason i wash them for my wife every day.

I usually try to wash them up then and there.If I let them pile up I will keep on postponing the washing and clearing.

I know what you mean. Good thing the dishwasher I have also does pots and pans.
