Ditching my Kitchen

I didn't get my blogger name by accident. It's been a part of my email name since before cell phones. I know, I know, there are some of you out there who don't remember a time without cell phones. Yeah, I'm that old.

In making up my email name, I thought long and hard about how I wanted my persona to be described. Kitchen Ditcher suits me to a tee. There are a million and one things that I would rather be doing than doing my dishes.

When my children were young, I'd much rather read to them than do my dishes. When they were teenagers, I'd much rather be chaperoning their activities than doing my dishes. And now that I am an empty nester, here is what I'd rather be doing than doing my dishes:

Cutting my toenails
Responding to a telemarketer survey
Playing racquetball with hubby
Cleaning the hair out of the shower drain
Going to plays
Letting the dentist drill on my teeth
Watch golf on tv - no, wait - fishing...that's even worse!

What would YOU rather be doing than doing MY dishes?? lol

Oh no mom, we really need to come visit you. you are suffering from what I like to call PTCV syndrome (post traumatic children vacancy). I can tell by your frequent and random blogging (those are the tell-tale symptoms!)

If I were doing your dishes that would mean several things:
1. I would be in California.
2. I would be at your house.
3. We would have just eaten something.
4. It would probably have been something like your famous pancakes, or terriyaki beef, or italian meatloaf.
5. Those taste good.
So...you pay for the tickets, I'll do the dishes.
P.S. If you make ghoulash, I am not coming.

Like you, I avoid dishes at all costs! But I'm with Sherri. Famous pancakes sound good - so I'd do your dishes. ;)

I don't remember visiting your blog before during my "blog stalking expeditions" but I keep seeing your "name" when I leave comments on some of the blogs I stalk. I was very fascinated by your blog name so I had to find out what it is all about and "rummaged" through your old posts. You are very funny :-) I have a plaque prominently displayed in my kitchen that says "I have a kitchen only because it came with the house" so I think I totally get what you are saying here.
