Week 5 Recap: Dishes

I always used to be able to keep up with the dirty dishes. Other than the odd stray up or pot, the dishes were usually mostly clean and put away. Now I struggle to keep up with the gathering piles next to the sink. It seems I just can’t wash them as fast as they get dirty. I can’t figure out if they’re getting dirtier faster or if I’m cleaning them slower.

We don’t have any plates, or cups. I cleaned the pans yesterday, and they’re already dirty again. Eventually they’re going to fall on the floor, or the sink is going to flood, or there’s going to be Hamburger Helper permanently glued to the plates.
