Forgotten Dishwasher & Other Wisdom

by - February 08, 2019

The last two weeks have been...weird. Yeah, that's a good word to describe it. Two weekends ago I traveled to coastal Alabama to see a friend I haven't seen in person in over two years (she lives in the Northeast, making frequent visits difficult and costly). I felt great when I got home that Monday, but the next day woke up with an irritating cough that only got worse as the week wore on. It peaked (hopefully) last weekend and this week seems to have been on the down swing, but it's been magazine delivery week so I've been literally running all over the Wiregrass. So, like I said - a weird couple of weeks.

Wednesday I took a break from delivering magazines so I would have one full day to respond to emails and stay on top of my deadlines for the March issue. I also used the time to get caught up on undone housework and picked Alexis up from school early so we could have a few daylight hours to play outside.

Later, while I was cooking dinner, I unloaded the dishwasher and put away the dishes that had been in the drying rack for a few days. After dinner, I loaded all our dishes from that night and those that had accumulated in the sink into the dishwasher and closed it. I didn't put the detergent pod in or turn it on. Just closed it and proceeded to forget about it...for the next two days.

Life, especially married and parenting life, is like that sometimes. Ok, so it's like that most of the time. Some weeks everything goes smoothly, and the next you're doing good to make it to bedtime without losing your mind. But all those little moments happening in between the insanity make it worth it.

Have a great weekend!
