I ran a dishwasher full of dirty dishes (dishes that had been sitting since the sink started flooding on Friday) this afternoon. Then I unloaded all of those, and put the wet ones in the drainer, and reloaded all of my metal and ceramic dishes that were waiting. Those can tolerate heat dry; my plastic dishes warp. Now, the last load--all of my plastic dishes, the kids' supper dishes, and my bowl and spoon--is going.
I have accomplished much in getting my kitchen back into livable shape.
Now, I'm gonna go write. Hopefully, I can finish the story chapter I've been working on.
