your now considered a hoarder.

I'm trying to stay awake. Did't seem to have a problem at 6:38 AM. Or 7:38 AM. Or 8:38 AM... Woke up an hour apart until I gave up around 10:30 and said heck with it.

To top it off her husband would be there in the middle room in bed. That job only lasted two days.
A long-ago boyfriend had to pick his parents up from the airport. He got me along the way (I lived between where he went to college and where his parents' home was) so we could do something after we deposited the folks at home. First, he had to stop at the house, so he told me to wait in the car until he "inspected". Came back out with a bit of steam coming out of the years because Mom and Dad had gone on their weekend trip and left all the dirty dishes on the table! Yuck. Guess this was a regular routine of theirs - he went in to make sure it wasn't bug-infested, I guess. I have no idea how he turned out to be such a neat-freak. Self-defense, I suppose.

Maybe it's because I live alone, I want to leave this world in as good a shape as I found it!

Just got back from the pool. Got to share it with the home-schoolers and their kids, all the other kids are back in school.

Living alone I have no excuse for leaving except that if I am tired, I can't stand too long on my legs. So I leave them for later or the next day. I too use paper plates. Small ones, bowls and larger plates. It certainly cuts down on the mess. But I refuse to use plastic cutlery. Every so often my daughter will pick up a commercial size bunch of paper cups with the lids. Saves on the dirty cups. They last me forever. Five hundred is a lot of cups.

I can afford the expense of the paper products. A small luxury for myself. I don't want my last words to be, "I wish I had done more housework."

I live alone too, Bea. To me, that means I don't have to worry whether there are dishes to be washed.

It's more important to me to take care of my "bad" back. Sometimes, it takes me several tries to get a bunch of dishes done. If my back starts to hurt, I found that if I stop immediately and sit down for a few minutes, I don't end up with a lasting backache. In my case, I had to learn not to push myself, or I'd pay the price.

It took me awhile to get used to the idea, but now I have much less lasting back pain than I used to have.

I just leave them for the Ogre, you should hear him roar if he thinks I am washing dishes. Gives him something to do.

Glad I'm not the only lucky lady around here PF. The first time I ever cooked for Steve he told me to go sit outside and relax while he cleaned up the kitchen. I did just that, and looked up and said said, thank you Lord.
