  • do you have a tv? I find a show I want to watch (or a recorded one on the dvr). Before turning it on, I fill up the sink and toss some dishes in (I do cups first, the silverware, plates, and finally pans). Durin comercial I wash dishes, as quickly as I can, and when the show comes back on, I plop my butt down. Comercials are my time to get stuff done!

  • yes i have that happen. do you have any kids that could help with dishes.? if not put on some music you enjoy to listen to while you are doing the dishes. this helps relax me. you can sing along while you scrub the dishes.( i would invest in a dish washer)

  • well i would have the kids help but they are at school right now and i know i need to get them done. with 6 in a house 4 adults two kids we go through a lot. my mom lives with me but she has arthritis so bad she cannot stand for long so i won't ask her to help.

  • well do to my stress level right now , i actually started because if i do not do something i am liable to be screaming by the time the kids get home. because they are both in serious trouble with me today. but i am taking my time due to my back. i been going from the dishes to the tv to the dishes to the computer just to break it up a bit
