I was unloading the dishwasher today and as I put a glass tumbler away, I thought it looked a little dirty (as in water spots). So I dug to the back of the cabinet to find a glass that’s been unused for a while. As I compared the two, I wondered how in the world our glasses where so spotty and I never noticed before. I can’t remember the last time I put Jet Dry in or when I changed detergents but YUCK …the glasses are embarrassing regardless of the reason(s).
I’m not sure why I was compelled to photograph this contrast but as I snapped away, I started to think about the other things in my life that have changed and I haven’t noticed (or pretended not to notice … is that a nice way of saying ignored?). My house is out of control. We are so overwhelmed with stuff it’s ridiculous. We have this room … the guest / computer / overflow storage room …. basically, it’s a room full of crap. Along with my spotty glasses, it’s an embarrassment. I’ve been saying forever that I need to get it organized and yet I haven’t.
And there’s more but I’ll just say that my focus is going to be getting our home in order …. inside and out … over the coming weeks. I’m hoping some Jet Dry will cure my spots …. too bad there isn’t a quick fix for everything else!
