The art of housework

Today there was a pile of dishes in the sink.  Not just any pile of dishes.  It’s possible that EVERY dish was in that pile.  I didn’t want to wash them, but knew that if I didn’t I would have to be very creative in making and serving dinner tonight.

So, before I started I decided to play a little.  Thinking maybe if I could incorporate fun into the chore it would be less, well like a chore.  I call this one “Dishopolis”.  I created towers of dishes, pretending they were very fragile building blocks.

I call this one “Procrastination”, because that was exactly what I was doing.  I really hate doing dishes, but after my impromptu photo shoot I loaded them all into the dishwasher.

They are all clean now, except the ones used for dinner.

I’ll wash those tomorrow.
