Cleaning the kitchen

In our household I clean the kitchen. I don't have to. I chose to do it.

On good days cleaning the kitchen is like meditating.
I'm alone with all the dirty dishes and pans. I put them in the dish washer or wash them in the sink. I sort the dishes and I sort my thoughts. I get rid of the stinking remainings in the pans and I try to get rid of any stinking worries in my mind.

I like the feeling, when I'm done. Everything is fresh and clean. You know that, if you mess up this tidy place you'll feel guilty. But it'll happen anyway, no doubt about that.

That's what it's like on good days...on bad days cleaning the kitchen is like a pain in the rear end!
