There has been one thing in most of the kitchens I've lived in that I never full understood. This:
Kitchen cabinets that stop approximately 1.5-2 feet from the ceiling. It's wasted space and of course it means that we use it to store appliances and other kitchen goodies that we do not use that often but use often enough not to shove into a closet.
Being that this is a kitchen we're talking about these don't only get dusty, they get grimy. And gross. And just generally disgusting.
This morning Lee had to leave early for a meeting and just before he left I remembered I needed the crockpot. He grabbed it for me on his way out the door and then I proceeded to clean the crockpot. In fact, I cleaned the crockpot twice because all the grime didn't come off the first time.
I'm not big on cleaning in general. I hate doing it, though I do like things to be clean. Especially in the kitchen. (The other thing I hate about our kitchen is how the lower cabinets never look clean, even five minutes after I've scrubbed them.) The only thing more annoying than cleaning is having to clean things twice.
