Our dishwasher has decided to stop working. And because of this, I need to wash the dishes by hand!! I know what you must be thinking…”Poor Tanzie, however will she cope with this tragedy?” “How will she manage this in addition to everything else she does?” “How will she manage her afternoon naps?” I know, I know!
But we are not ready to purchase a new dishwasher and I cannot bring myself to use more disposable products. So I found myself, with rubber-gloved hands washing the dishes!
Here’s the really sad part: I couldn’t figure out the logistics of hand washing the dishes!! Do I fill one sink with soapy water and rinse in the other…do I let the water RUN the whole time I am washing?…am I wasting water?…are these dishes getting really clean?…am I being too analytical AGAIN?…who will get sent home tonight on So You Think You Can Dance ?…oh wait…that’s my other big worry!
You’ll be happy to know that regardless of all the possibilities and various techniques, I finally found my way: And now there are a bunch of clean dishes air drying in our new dish rack: the broken dishwasher!!
