(my not-so-domesticated daughter, YET;)
every morning i awake and drink two glasses of iced coffee. a month ago i actually had EIGHT iced tea glasses from which to choose...
this morning i opened the kitchen cabinet and found one juice glass, two coffee cups, a set of margarita glasses, and my wine glass collection.
where the heck have all my ice tea glasses gone???
i thought to myself.
then i thought for a moment...
oh, yes, several have been broken over the past few weeks and the others are in the dishwasher...
awaiting a full dishwasher so that they may be washed:S
several weeks ago, katherine's ipod met its untimely demise...
"mom... dad... what could i do around the house to earn money to buy me a new ipod???" katherine asked.
"oh, and can i go ahead and get it now???"
john and i thought... i told katherine that she would have to load, wash, and unload the dishes from the dishwasher; john told her he was going to show her how to vacuum the swimming pool (he has yet to do so); we told her she was going to have to keep her room (the kat cave) a little neater than she had been keeping it...
longer story... SHORTER...
katherine got her new ipod.
(katherine's new ipod NANO;)
katherine also learned how to and started managing the dishwasher...
however, along the way
several tea glasses got broken.
and... katherine learned that much less work is involved in washing the dishes if she waits until the dishwasher is full-to-overflowing before starting a load.
hence, i only had THIS to drink my iced coffee from this morning:S
(a wine glass for my iced coffee)
ALL my iced tea glasses have either been broken,
or they (the 4 that are left)
were residing in the dishwasher awaiting the company
of more dirty dishes
so that they could be washed!!!
all this to say
that i am off to purchase some new glasses tonight...
i'm thinking something inexpensive
until the domestication of said daughter
love and blessings,
