Here we go…

I’m trying to find it in myself to become super woman. Well, not her literally but just one of those women who have everything under control like work and home. It’s been a struggle for me for far too long and I’ve decided with the help of my good friend the internet that I can find ways that’ll work for me.

 

I’ve been married for nearly 6 months and with the same guy for about 3 1/2 years.   Due to life crisis he currently is out of work and that leaves me as the bread winner. I don’t mind working, I really don’t. It does interfere with keeping the apartment in order however.

If you were to visit on any day you’d see dishes all over the counter, probably dirty pots and pans from last nights dinner, clothes draped over the couch back and way too many bottles from various beverages. Nothing is really dirty just completely out of order. I don’t like it, nor do I like have anyone around when the place is in such a state.  Currently, it isn’t so but give it about 24 hours and we’ll see that change (unless I stay on top of it!).

As of today I would like to say that I feel very accomplished in the fact that I put away ALL the laundry. Yes all…ok, maybe not the socks, but everything else!   I also emptied and reloaded the dishwasher which is usually pulling teeth for me to do. I just hate it, mainly because I wait a day or two to actually take care of it and theres more than I want to do. So, strike on my part for that.

I do want to clean the dishwasher…I know that sounds weird for something that really seems like it should be inherently clean, but lets face it, its not and some of my dishes are coming out with more gunk on them than they are put in with (generally none). So things are having to be washed twice over (and something THREE TIMES..unacceptable).  I’ve been reading other blogs on how to clean your dishwasher and it’s by no means a glamorous job (gloves required!) but, with a minor inspection of my dishwasher I’m not so sure the filter at the bottom comes off. So who really knows if I’ll be able to get the kind of clean I want.  I also heard that the disposal could be to blame, partly, for this matter. That will get a cleaning too.
