This story from a reader made me laugh so much! I completely understand, and get all the warm fuzzies knowing that I’m not the only one out there who just doesn’t see certain things! Slob Vision is real, y’all!
Good Morning! I just had to share this with you. I was sooo tired last night.I was sooo proud of myself for getting everything in the dishwasher and turning it on before I collapsed into bed. I had only left a paring knife in the sink (we don’t put any sharp knives in the dishwasher). I was so happy I would wake up to a clean kitchen!Imagine my surprise this morning when I saw the pictures below. It could be MUCH worse, but I literally laughed out loud, and immediately thought, “Nony will get a kick out of this!”So here ya go! Enjoy!
It seems we also suffer from the same symptoms of Time Passage Awareness Disorder (T.P.A.D.) Here is the message I received several months later –
Talk about TPAD! I remember you asked if you could share this, but I think I was on my way walking from my car to work when I read it! Now (7 months later) I am cleaning out my inbox! LOL!I don’t mind if you share it, or even if you use my name.~Mandi

What is it about baking sheets that makes them invisible?? You don’t know how many times I’ve filled the dishwasher and started it only to turn around and see a baking sheet on the stove!!

She clears out her Inbox?? Mandi has SKILLS!
I too have a toaster that renders whatever I set on top of it invisible.
Foil or parchment paper on the pan when you cook, then just put away.
From not just a slob, but an avoider of cleaning.

Rule in my house: never ever leave anything on the stove even when it is turned off.
This pic was disconcerting because the color of the stove, the configuration of counter and the look of the soup pot are nearly identical to those in my home. I don’t have a cookie sheet, or a toaster or I would think an intruder snuck in to gather evidence.
Rude but still welcome awakening!
HaHa! True “Slob Vision”! I have the very same “ailment”!

So funny. I always wonder who came in and messed up the kitchen overnight.
It looks a lot different in the morning than it did the night before.
Ha! I was going through the photos on my phone the other day, saw these and wondered if they would ever actually make it on the blog! How funny that I decided to catch up on your blog today and thought, hey, that’s my stove! Sorry Nony, I’m telling on you- this was from at least 3 years ago. (My 6 year old was a toddler). Things are better, but I still have my days! And to the person who thinks I keep my inbox clean… I can guarantee you I was looking for something specific and “getting rid of the trash” I found along the way!

Ha! I know! I was going through things while getting set up to be able to work on my book, and found several from so long ago! SO glad you’re still around!
