Let me tell you something. Washing dishes is one of those activities that I hate and love at the same time.
Why I kinda like washing the dishes.
It doesn’t take too much thinking to accomplish this task, which is the biggest draw for me. I can listen to audio drama, or podcasts, or even watch Netflix while washing. A dishes dance party is also a really fun option! Although it’s also nice to just… think. It can be a great point of disconnect.
Why I mostly don’t like washing the dishes.
Washing the dishes is yucky!! I’m a bit of a germaphobe at times, and washing the dishes isn’t totally appealing to me. Once I get started, it’s not too bad most of the time. But sometimes, I just can’t handle it.
It’s quite frustrating since I’m a highly clean person. Like, I’m literally OCD about things. So some people say that I should enjoy cleaning! But I don’t. I like having things clean and organised, but the process of cleaning things isn’t always appealing. That’s not what the point is. The point is to have it be organised. That’s what I like (and sometimes need!).
Washing the dishes is not always fun for me. What’s kinda funny is that I’m about to wash some dishes. 😛
Note to self: Don’t wash the dishes so late at night. Go to bed! Do them first thing in the morning.
I’m cutting it close with this post! I’ve been working on writing up a bunch of stuff for The Aux Cable (my podcast with Ryan Matlock), and I got carried away. Oh well! Here comes my post of the day. 🙂
Let’s just do an update, eh?
My body has been feeling horrible lately, and it’s likely mostly due to my Crohn’s. But today was a really good day! The sun was shining brightly and my tummy wasn’t hurting. What more could I ask for?
I started with an early morning conference call (while still in bed) that went very well and ended with much laughter. Then I napped for a little bit, made some really yummy food, and then played some Just Dance. After singing in the shower, I decided to pack up my things so I could do my work outside. I mean, it’s a gorgeous day! How could I not be outside in the fresh, warm air? It was soooo nice to be outside, especially after the rain of the past two weeks. Rain is great too, but it can be depressing after several days.
When I came back inside for the evening, my sinuses became all stuffed, I’ve been sneezing like crazy, and I keep having to blow my nose! My allergies have kicked in over the past few weeks because of a new kitty in the house, which has been manageable. But I’m thinking that these symptoms have something to do with being outside today. Which is lame. I love being outside, this can’t happen!
Note to self: Maybe you should undergo some allergy testing?
I also got to hang out with a friend and introduce them to Corner Gas.
Anywhozzles, today I’m extremely thankful for the sunshine and for feeling much better!
