Clean dishes in the dishwasher; a full rack of dried pans and large bowls on the counter; a sink filled with grilling tools and bowls; the stovetop and adjacent counter covered in pots, pans, dishes and utensils… it is time to clean. I’m usually on top of this, doing dishes daily to prevent scenarios you would have found in the computer game The Sims, but alas, the last few days I’ve just not been into cleaning. I’ve been avoiding it with multiple episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in a row.
So now the time to clean is upon us. A time to empty the dishwasher and rack; a time to wash the hand wash only dishes and pots and pans; a time to once again have an uncluttered kitchen counter space. Ugh. I do not want that time to be today.
