How much time would you say you spend cleaning? I feel like a permanent fixture in front of the sink, washing dishes.
Tonight while making dinner, when the beer can chicken had six minutes left to cook, I raced to finish the dishes before the timer went off! Go! Go! Go!
My son immediately spilled a bottle of water across the desk - super great...I wiped that mess up with a dish towel and moved on...
At the three minute mark I could smell the broccoli! Don't burn - don't burn - shit!
The baby started fussing after three and a half minutes or so... just a few more plastic bowls...and...
ONLY FOUR MINUTES TO DO THE DISHES! High fives!!! Fist pump! Yesssss!
Wait a minute - I could have sworn I spent hours everyday with my hands in suds.
Have you ever timed how long it takes to complete everyday tasks? Do you try to track where your time actually goes (as if it is sneaking away somewhere - all stealth-like?)? Don't you love beer-can chicken?
ps. It only took 13 minutes to fold the laundry yesterday
