I thought that the holidays were busy, but they aren't anything compared to starting the spring semester. I'm teaching two sections again, on top of my already full-time job at the university. Lots of activity going on at work and home life isn't any slower. Thank goodness we have two bathrooms, because last weekend one of our toilets bit the dust. Non-repairable (read: expensive replacement). So, this upcoming weekend I will be installing a new toilet. I guess I should embrace that I will be learning something new. Or not.
With all that going on, I needed to focus on something I could resolve. Sink clutter. This little mess has been bothering me for a long time.
I think the bottles are ugly and I'm constantly knocking them over. The sponge is a whole other battle. I'm forever griping at my hubby about leaving it wet (ewww...gross) and scour side down - which sticks to the sink when it dries. I DO NOT like scraping the sponge off of my stainless steel sink. While out running errands, I ran across this little beauty:
Isn't that much better? $10 at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Well, before my 20% off coupon, cha-ching! It holds almost the entire bottle of dish soap. I know, I know...this is so trivial. But it makes me feel so much better. One step at a time. Besides, it takes my mind off that looming toilet project. Wish me luck!
