Okay, so....this morning I went to unload the dishes since The Hubbums had kindly run the dishwasher the other day. We now have a lovely sink full that need to go INTO said washer, so I wanted to get the clean ones put away and the dirty ones in just so we can start the cycle all over a-freaking-gain.
So. I open the dishwasher. I look inside and start to pull items from the bottom rack. They look a bit 'not clean enough' but sometimes our washer leaves a bit of a residue (I hate it, but I deal) so I figure it's no big deal. Then I notice that one look like it really isn't clean. I mean, it's rinsed and all, but not clean. I bumped the rack and THEN noticed that the lovely fancy little soap thingy is still IN the dispenser and not dissolved at ALL!
So, I look at it and figure it must be because it was put in upside down and one side is thinner than the other. I find that odd, since the whole thing actually dissolves, but whatever. So...I run the load again.
I do some stuff in the meantime. Like totally break my personal best on Bejeweled on Facebook. You know...important stuff. HA!
I go back to unload the dishes and start the process I intended to do earlier. Do you even KNOW what I found???!!!
Yup! Same deal. Only messier. It turns out I was right...the thinner side DOES, indeed, dissolve faster than the other side. So now I had a lovely goobery mess of undissolved dish soap STILL in the little dispenser thingy in the dishwasher.
So, I'm standing there staring at my dishwasher as though it is going to magically tell me why this never-before-occurance has decided to fill my day with dishes. Then it hits me. Or actually....it hit the flexible cutting board sheet thingy. You know...those plastic ones that you have for meat, veggies, fish, etc. Yeah. Those. I had one in the dishwasher. Normal, right?
Wellllll.........here's the thing. I thought I would be brilliant and make the most of the space in my machine by sliding the mat in the front of the bottom drawer, and putting my real cutting board on the side, so everything fit nicely.
Yes. It fit just SWELL! The thing of it is....that STUPID DUMB HEADED PLASTIC CUTTING MAT BLOCKED THE SOAP DISPENSER!!!!
Yeah. I'm officially a genious. And no. I totally can't blame this on The Hubbums, because A. He's smarter than that and B. because I am pretty DARNED sure that I put it there. I suppose I could blame him for not catchin my idiocy, but that might be going a bit far.
So....here I am. Blogging. Procrastinating. Why? Because I totally need to do my Use Your Stash project and I haven't yet. Yup. It's totally due tonight. AND....I made brownies instead. So, I'm waiting for the brownies to come out of the oven and for the dishwasher to SUCCESSFULLY clean my dishes this time around and blogging. All so I can do the dishes AGAIN later. Thank the LORD that my husband does the laundry. I hate chores. And now, I am pretty sure that they actually hate me, too.
I DID however, find this amazing giveaway that I want to share with you guys, though! Stephanie over at Where'd All My Money Go (isn't that the cutest name for a scrappy blog EVER?!
