One Minute Writer -- Washing Dishes

This morning's check of my favorite blogs led me to One Minute Writer (thanks, Jill Sprott). I've been lamenting about my hesitance to journal my layouts so I thought I'd give today's prompt a go in the name of practice.

 The Prompt:
 "What task do you prefer to do yourself instead of letting someone else do it for you?
My Response:

I prefer to wash my own dishes. Few others have my level of cleanliness (hand wash first) or know just how to stack the dishwasher. There are rules for dish washing – water temperature, inside and out  technique for tall glasses, utensil wiping -- that must be recognized.
The exercise was fun. I did go back and do a tiny bit of editing and spell-check; but my thoughts flowed easily. I'm going to make a habit of this and include it here and in my Project Life Albums.

Happy Sunday!


  1. loved your writing.. I too am starting this.. what a great blog this is... I love to write, so this is perfect. great to meet you! xo

  2. Great prompt. I'm kind of possessive of the dishwasher too. LOL! I should probably add laundry (the folding part) to the list too. :)

  3. I am so with you on the dish washing!
    I always wash off my dishes first because we have an older dish washer.
    So many people laugh at me for washing my dishes before washing them :)
    But I don't care.
    I like them clean :)

  4. Great prompt, and I love your reply. Honestly, I think there's not any housework I wouldn't gladly let someone else do for me, lol! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  5. This is such a great prompt.
    I am okay with someone else doing the dishes, but hate if they don't put away the dish cloth correctly.
    I do also need to have the towels folder correctly...well in my book its correctly, lol.
    Yes there are other obsessive women out there like me, teehee.
