My Dishes Still Aren't Done

Last night at dinner, I told Cory he needed to put the dishes away so I could wash the dirty ones. There was a whole pile of dirty ones because I didn't wash them Wednesday night either *gasp* - so they really needed done. Then dinner was over, and the next thing I knew Cory got a phone call. He had a Teen Library Council meeting that he had forgotten about, so he was off to the library, and my drainer was still full. I figured the dishes still needed done, so I put them away so Cory could wash the dirty ones. Except that didn't happen, because by the time he got home from the library he had other things he wanted to do, and it got late. I figured it would be OK if he washed them this morning.

Except, I forgot that he was volunteering at the library this morning so he got up early, but then he left. Now it's almost 2:30, and he's still not home. He hasn't been volunteering all this time. He went over to his friend's house (the one who gave him the video game from the video) and he won't be back for a while. That means my dishes still aren't done, and there are even more because we had breakfast, I had lunch, and I turned 4 bananas into muffins.

I'll be washing dishes now - so the drainer will be full again. Maybe this time Cory will stay home long enough to put them away.

  1. I'd be waiting forever for my kids to help in any way with the dishes, and they are not even kids anymore..

  2. LOL--I imagine my house will be like this in a few years. But I still can't wait until my kids are teens :) Have a great weekend.

  4. If I forget to remind mine to do something, it doesn't get done until I remember to tell them again or I do it myself. And they always seem to have to do SOMETHING else....I'll do it later.
