Long ago when I had five teenagers in the house and no dishwasher
I came to terms with doing the dishes.
One morning I decided that doing dishes was going to be pleasant.
There were days back then when it felt like I did nothing but dishes…
So…I changed my mindset from it being a terrible experience to a pleasant experience.
I bought my favourite scented dish soap, I turned on some music, and I began the task.
These days it’s just Joe and I, for the most part, and we have a dishwasher.
I still find dishes a pleasant sensory experience…the smell of the dish soap,
The warmth of the water, the sights of the little town outside of the window,
Lovely music in the background, the simple joy of completing the task….
