I hate doing dishes more than anything else in the world. My sinks are both full, we're out of bowls and down to one or two of everything else. I'm sitting her wishing that my 3 year old could do them, how awful is that? I hate how they stink. I hate, hate, hate how they feel. There is no feeling worse to me in all the world than slimy silverware. I hate how they look all gross and not clean. UG! So, what is my solution? I don't know, I don't have one.
I do really well in spurts. Even just before Thanksgiving, which was at my house this year, and for a while afterwards I did really well! Then I got a really bad cold and lost my voice and didn't feel like doing them. I have a lot of reasons (i.e. excuses) for not getting them done, but mostly they come down to the fact that I would MUCH rather be doing something else! The thing that works the best with me is a reward system. I love to sew almost as much as breathing, so I don't let myself go down to sew unless there is at least a load of dishes in the dishwasher. (I know, you're shocked that I'm still complaining even though I don't even have to wash them by hand!) I also love to play the Sims which is also a good reward to me, plus, my computer is now in the kitchen, so I can actually catch the dishes right as they get done and theoretically put them away and put in some more. However, one of my other favorite excuses is that they need time to air dry. I'm a pro at making excuses!
Well, as writing this has turned into my excuse this time, I shall excuse myself to go and do the dishes now that my tantrum is over. :)
