I promised a picture of the kitchen sink for all of you who couldn't believe that I have truly changed my ways. I took this earlier today. I realize the sink does not exactly look clean but please keep in mind we have just (like as in yesterday) painted our dining room floor, the dishes on the left are clean, sitting in a dish rack and only from the previous night's dinner, and nothing is growing in there. I will actually scrub the sink tomorrow before the in-laws come. For now I am satisfied that I can see to the bottom of it. Simple pleasures.
