Looking For Something Clean

Some years ago our family got to sample an extended period without Mom's touch. Mom had a prolonged illness, and that left a lot of work not being done around the house. So, our three children and I divided up the chores, which is why not a lot of work was not done around the house. But somehow the kitchen sink always seemed to go unattended. Those dirty dishes took on a life of their own!
Now, the most frustrating times came during the morning rush when we were getting ready for school or work. I'd rush into the kitchen and look for one clean bowl to eat my cereal from. Nada. One clean spoon to eat it with? No. One clean glass to put juice in. All I could find was dirty.
