You know...these dishes are all YOUR faults...I used to do them every night before I had a TCS life...Now, I am too addicted to you guys to even do the darn dishes

So there...I blame you

For the past 6 weeks I've been working on a show so I'm home once a week. Thats the night I do laundry, dishes, and sweep the floors. For the past week I've been in rehearsal every night so yeah, I still have a sink full of coffee cups, water glasses and a few cereal bowls. They will be attacked tonight.

I refuse to say anything...

Years ago I would do the family dishes before bed but would wake up to a sinkload! Turns out Mom would get late night munchies but not clean up after herself. I rebelled. Still am rebelling. We use disposable plates.

This is why I keep a reserve of the less than great silverware and dishes in a handy spot... and what's worse... we do have a dishwasher!

Hey, we drink out of measuring cups deliberately at my house! (My fiance and I are on Weight Watchers and we have to measure out 8 oz. of milk ... Why dirty two cups? )

But no, we never have this problem. J's pretty anal retentive about the dishes (actually, about most cleaning issues) and washes the dishes as soon as he's done using them. I'd leave them -- at least until after dinner -- but I feel guilty when I see him do it ...

Former housemates, on the other hand, left dishes in the sink for soooo long that they had maggots in the sink. (Maybe it's not guilt that makes me clean the dishes right away. Maybe it's memories of maggots and other foul things that keeps me from giving in to my lazier impulses ...) Ohhh yeah. Good times.

you bring back memories of my roommates in college. one roommate would ALWAYS leave the dishes (of course always saying she'd wash them later). i always got stuck washing them because after a point they stink. well, the last time she did it took the cake. she left town (permanently i found out later) and left a pan with rice and water in the sink!!!!! she ruined my pan. i could not get that nasty stench out of it. the worst part was she didn't tell me, and i didn't find it until it started to smell up the apartment.

so i haven't lived like that since that last roommate. we have a dishwasher now, but before that i washed dishes 1-2 times a day by hand. i can't take stinky dishes in the sink.

I'm not a neat freak, by ANY means, but dishes in the sink are one thing I don't like. Get this, though (sorry, ladies, but this will make you jealous) My DH enjoys doing dishes!

We usually have to do the dishes right away so Reeses doesn't play in the sink with them, so not usually. It's just the two of us and we have enough stuff for 10 people anyway *lol*

I have to clean my dishes up from the coffee table right away, or Trout will have a heyday with them.. At least I get them to the sink very quickly...but washing them is a whole other ballgame

Trout doesn't pay attention to them when they are in the sink

Reeses does and I don't know why. It's like ooo! A knife with Peanut Butter on it!

We have a dishwasher but it's a portable one, so that would entail wheeling it over to the sink, hooking it up, leaving the water running and having to remember to turn it off when it was done. Too much effort It just serves as an island to put our microwave on *lol*

OMG, my sink always has so many knives with peanut butter on them

Yeah those island dishwashers are bad news I would never do them if I had one.

That's simple! Do you have a disposal? If you do pour a little bit of baking soda down that and the citrus peels from fruit that you've eaten (orange,lemon,lime) Turn the water on and the disposal- in a few seonds you're kitchen will smell much better - the baking soda absorbs the bad odor and the citrus peels will give off a nice light fruity scent My sister Kimmy tought me that a while back

no disposal I got off my big o butt and cleaned them LOL.
