For those of you that know me and know my love of washing dishes, this may come as a surprise. I'm not even sure I want to mention it and run the risk of jinxing myself...but for a week now I've been able to keep my kitchen clean and all the dishes are done before I go to bed. I think maybe it was my week off from anything kitchen related, combined with my mother's ability to keep her kitchen clean with 3 grandkids and a daughter making messes that helped spur me on to greater heights (or depths) of cleanliness. Not to brag too much, but I've also kept on top of the laundry...clothes are clean and folded and put away. I say this all in amazement as these are not my strong points when it comes to "household management". I'm praying that my fervor and devotion will continue, it's really nice to wake up to a clean house and know that pans are already clean for making breakfast and that nothing is growing mold or going to suddenly evolve out of the slime and muck and run away. People have been telling me for years that it's easier to do one or two dishes at a time than waiting for them all to be dirty and trying to wash them all at once, I think I might be inclined to believe them now.
