Where did all of the dishes come from? January 16, 2010

Posted by The Mom in Uncategorized.

I never had enough side plates. Ever. I felt like I was constantly fighting with the side plate monster who was using the side plates before I could get them. There was even the odd day that I would run out of dinner plates and there were never enough bowls.

Now, if I were to buy two more side plates I wouldn’t have anywhere to put them. The only reason I could deal with one new plate is because I chipped the edge of one the other day and rather than doing the “usual” I put it straight in the bin. I hate broken/chipped plates/bowls yet we were using them for a long time. Right now I have probably got two too many bowls.

I went to IKEA today and while I saw lots of lovely stuff, I felt no urge to buy any of it. Mainly because I am not sure where I would put it. I want to finish dumping what I have and don’t use before I add more stuff into the mix. I did buy 4 new hand towels because I want to experiment with changing the hand towels in the bathroom more often. I need to see what effect it has on the laundry. My laundry is under control (there are 2 outstanding loads, which is way better than the 7 that there was this day last week) without using the tumble dryer to dry back to back loads. My stairs remain clear.

Most importantly I feel positive about “finishing” my kitchen & working on the rest of my house.

My sink is clean & empty for the 7th night in a row. It is also shiny 🙂
