I'm scanning my computer for a virus. I don't think it is on my end, not sure.

I just saw a young lady from down the block go by. She walks her two dogs several times each day. One is a young energetic Lab and the other is an ancient Basset Hound that can no longer walk. The Basset rides, on a blanket, in a red Radio Flyer wagon while the young Lab strains to sniff every blade of grass along the route. They make an interesting trio!

Just sitting here listening to a wonderful thunder storm past through our area.

We had slow cooker country style ribs yesterday. (Or last night.) So the dirty dishes are sitting in the sink calling me. I was just too tires to do them. So there they sit. I hate starting my day with a sink full of dirty dishes from the day before. The ribs were really good though.

When I have a chore I dislike doing I try to combine it with something pleasurable, e.g. music or the radio. That way I don't notice it too much. Oh, and to have a treat lined up for afterwards goes without saying!

I hear you Addie.Nothing worse than to go to bed knowing the kitchen is spotless to wake up with at least 40 minutes of dirty dishes in the morning.I mean they are all over my clean kitchen.

One day I woke up and saw that mess.Ticked me off.
I opened up the the bedroom doors.Walked away. While I was cleaning up their mess again,I made darn sure they heard every clanking dish being washed.Took my sweet time doing it to.
Even vacumed the carpets.GOOD MORNING SUNSHINES!!!

Now we have an understanding.Keep her well stocked in paper plates.

When I was a teenager I had a babysitting job for a nurse. I would get there early in the morning and there in the kitchen was all of their dirty dishes sitting on the table yet from the night before with a sink full of dirty pots and pans, which she expected me to clean up. To top it off her husband would be there in the middle room in bed. That job only lasted two days.

I have no such issues. We finish dinner around 8:00PM and SO and I just want to relax. I often leave all or part of the dinner dishes and the hand washing for the next day when I am alone and there are no new posts on DC.

I wish dishes weren't an issue around here.But unfortunately leisure time is very little these days for me.Dishes and kitchen have to be done right after dinner.I do wash as I go.
They know I get up early to make hubby's, lunch dinner and the emergency meal.Paper plates have certainly cut down on the dishes,standing time.Now it's whoever tops the can off takes out the trash..
Don't look at me.*invisible*

I'm too cheap for paper plates!

I try to wash the dishes and tidy up before I turn in.

You never know when the paramedics or the fire department will decide to show up in the middle of the night!

Never thought of that. If they see I am slow to do the dishes I may not get the best level of medical care...
