Anyone would have been forgiven for thinking it must have been a hell of a party. There were dishes everywhere. Pots and pans were stacked in the sink, some still with half eaten food. The room was littered with glasses of unfinished beverages and coagulating coffee in mugs at one time meant to sober the imbiber or caffeinate the exhausted; all of whom were me. On the day my depression lifted, the pots were the first to hit the curb. Then I circled the room with an “ultra strong” garbage bag and rid myself of a service for 12.

  2. You know what? I actually had this experience–you brought back the forgotten memory of standing over my kitchen sink and making the big brave decision to get rid of it all, and start over. Sometimes that’s the only way to get unstuck.


  3. Well you know I can relate to this, and I’m happy to say that my kitchen stays clean these days! Papa Bear and I have a running joke about me buying more bowls rather than washing the dirty ones stacked up. In fairness, it was his suggestion, but he wasn’t serious and didn’t think I would. Challenge accepted! 😁
