Most times, I do the dishes before I go to bed.
Actually, truthfully, I prefer to have them washed, dried and put away by 8pm because, ideally, I'm in bed by 9 and lights out by 10. But of course, in REAL life, that never happens.
Hubby gets home late, and brings no less than 4 reusable containers and lids. I get home late and bring at least 2. AND if I've gotten home late you better hope that nobody is hungry because I'm usually cranky by that time and the LAST thing I want to hear is "whats for dinner mom?" ... fend for yourself Animals!
My opinion is that nothing is worse than waking up to a sink full of dishes ... uggg. Not the way I want to start my morning off (bad enough I have to deal with the freakin cat box ... anyone want a cat?)
So how about it. Do you go out of your way to have a clean sink and counter before going to bed? Or do you simply wash and let dry overnight? OR do you take the easiest, and probably most desirable way out and load the dishwasher? (Which brings me to the other question, run it overnight or start in the morning? Mine is L. O. U. D.)
