Today was filled from beginning to end with Christmas shopping. The kids were farmed out and I got almost all of it done.
But after two hours round trip of driving to get to decent shopping, and arriving home just in time to go immediately to basketball practice, I didn’t feel like doing anything.
So my checklist for today is:
Loaded and started dishwasher just now.
My house is looking worse than it has in a while. But at least I avoided having the counters covered in dirty dishes when I wake up in the morning.
Running the dishwasher tonight meant that the dishes were still manageable. Waiting until tomorrow would probably mean that I would fill the dishwasher and still have a load’s worth on the counters. I don’t want to go back there.
I’ve been there before, and it isn’t fun.
