I hate washing dishes...

So last night when I was doing the dishes I started thinking about how much time I spend hating it. Seriously, it is ridiculous how much of my day is thinking about the dirty dishes. Every time I cook, make a meal or snack, go in the kitchen, see a cooking show on t.v., I could go on and on.

Then I got to thinking about how I could get a second dishwasher in my kitchen. Just transfer the dishes back n forth between them and save cabinet space, genius!

Then I got convicted. (Awww man.)

For as much as I pray about NOT having a bad attitude, I could have solved the world hunger problem, filled the hole in the ozone, and solved the problems in Afganistan. I mean really. It's pretty pathetic that I have to PRAY about not having a bad attitude regarding "that area" of the kitchen.

So I forced myself to wash ***gasp*** some of the dishes instead of leaving them in the sink. And I loved the result, hated the dish hands), but loved the clean sink. Unfortunately it only stayed that way for about an hour. But I am going to start changing my attitude and spend my time praying for people instead of my grumpy attitude.

So I was wondering....

Am I crazy....

Does anyone else feel this way about a household chore or anything in life in general?

Maybe I need reassured that I'm not the only ridiculous person or maybe I just need confirmation that I am crazy. Leave your thoughts.

I've added a Mcklinky so you can link your blog to mine and we can all blog hop along. Great way to get new traffic on your site and learn more about each other or feel like your not the only person in the world with issues...ha!

Now...guess what's waiting for me? Yep, dish hands here I come...

P.S. If you don't know what a linky is here is a simple direction. (This is written for my mom to understand. Most likely she'll be calling me anyway, but this gets her started.) You type your blog address on my linky that links to your blog. Then when we click on your name it sends us to the article that you have written on your blog about this topic.

P.S.S. My mom and sisters better participate or I am going to have serious insecurity issues if no one links up!

Here is my tip for your "dish hands", pink rubber dish washing gloves! They are designed to fit on ladies hands, they are pink (much cuter than rubber duckie yellow), and also come in 3 sizes. Check them out!

Now to figure out this linky thingy...

You did it!!! Now we can all use linky.

Where do I get pink dishwashing gloves? Is this just a target thing or order online?

I saw this quote on a friend's FB earlier and then read your blog:

Thank God for dirty dishes, they have a tale to tell; while others may go hungry, we're eating very well. - Author Unknown

Sorry I don't have time to do the linky thing! I hate cleaning the tub! But yes, rubber gloves make everything better.

Or you could head to Marshalls/TJ Maxx type place and get the pink ones with pretty ruffles for $5.99. Maybe a little high priced, but will make you feel cute. I recently read a tip: slather your hands in lotion, slip your gloves on, wash dishes, the warm water and lotion give your hands a steam treatment and make them feel silky smooth!
