Does your significant other ever offer to help you clear the table after you eat? It's a rare treat in my house. I like to grab the opportunity when its presented. However, this is what I usually see when I return to the kitchen. Most of the dishes are not rinsed off and just thrown haphazardly into a pile or into the sink. This particular time I was told to leave the pots and pans and he'd take care of them. Usually I clean them up before I sit down to eat. This way they're done and I don't have to look at them afterwards.
I came back into the kitchen and seen the above right before I was going to bed. I couldn't sleep with it looking that way and I didn't have the energy to wash them. Our dishwasher has been broke since May of 2009. So, I spent 10 minutes rinsing and stacking them. Look at how much nicer they look. I still wasn't happy to see them the next morning but at least I didn't cry at the sight of them.
