Question of the Day #1,064

Every morning, I'm stunned to find my kitchen looking like there was a party in it. For example, this morning, the blender is center stage, the pitcher part dirty, top tossed aside. A baking sheet speckled with crusted cheese from last night's nachos pokes out of the sink. A couple pots sit on the stove. Oven mitts lay on the counter next to half a lime, remnants of a jalapeno and a fistful of cilantro.

But no, there wasn't a party. All that mess came from me.

Other mornings, empty bottles will compliment an even bigger mess. Just Friday, when I woke to a similar scene, I stepped in a drop of chocolate syrup before putting my hand in some ice creamy-counter goop.

I don't know why I don't clean it up before bed. Just like I don't know why I'm continually shocked to find a mess every morning.

What repeat offense are you continually shocked by?



  1. Mine: Not filling the Brita pitcher before I go to bed and then have to wait to make morning coffee until I filter some water.

    Rest of family: They go to bed and leave the sofa looking like a family of monkeys jumped all over it. How long does it take to fold a lap blanket and straighten 3 pillows?

  2. I find it difficult to clean things up before bed as well *sigh* oh but how nice it would be to wake up in the morning to a clean house! lol

  3. I'm shocked my little sister still sleeps in until almost noon on a daily basis. Sleep city!

  4. There's a great blues song,I believe by Albert Collins, called Too Many Dirty Dishes which describes it well. I don't know how all those dishes accumulate in the kitchen over the course of the day when it's just the two of us.

  5. My boy's playroom. It's right in the 'walkway' to the rest of the downstairs, so it's always a real eyesore.
