Overload or I Vant to be Alone

This past week has been a little overwhelming for me.
Sick kids, plumbers, cooking, cleaning, junk food, and a house full of company all weekend long.
It was nice but too much work and I'm beat.
I totalled it up: I spent 10-11 hours between Friday morning and Sunday night just doing dishes.
JUST DISHES!!!

Anyway I've never been so happy to just sit down here at work and just do my job in peace and quiet.

Don't even leave me any comments this time. Just let me bask in the serenity of a nice quiet empty blog.

Love,
Shifra

Are you sure that you want all that quiet. Might get lonely. ;)

For now, quiet is good maybe tomorrow I'll feel social again.
I have plenty of work to keep me busy.

Have you considered buying a dishwasher? Or do you already have one and still spent 11 hours loading and reloading it?

I don't have a dishwasher.
Unfortunately space and money are a little tight right now. Maybe someday...

I'm totally leaving you alone on this.

I dont have a dishwasher at home either. Last week, the dishes piled high enough that I had to strategically seperate them throughout the kitchen just to get to sink to start washing. And all this could be avoided if I just wash them more often. But nooooooooooooooooooooooo, not me. I have to wait till the health department comes knocking at my door. And ofcourse, my wife is yelling at least 10 times for me to start the dishes.

portable dishwasher. Store it anywhere on the same level, roll it over to block the sink to run it. Assuming there is anywhere on the same level to store it, that is. Can't help on the too expensive, but it's worth every penny. In fact, since the dishwasher is fleishig, we only use real dishes for fleishigs, and use paper for milchigs. (In our defense, a lot of lactose intolerant people live here, so milchigs are infrequent as it is.)

wait a minute, there is already a portable dishwasher in the market? DAMN, there goes my million dollar idea.

We have a portable one too. You can probably get one in to 300-400 range if I recall correctly. And it doubles as another surface to put your clutter on.
