My experiment turned out exactly as I predicted!

As I told you on July 31st. I fell and hurt myself more then I thought. Not too bad but my right shoulder (the one I had replaced a few years ago) was hurting when I moved my arm, so I ended up going to the ER saturday night. They took an X-ray and thankfully I didn't break anything, but the doctor put me in a brace and arm sling to keep me from moving it too much. Now on to my experiment, every time I do the dishes my daughter comes up and tells me "I was gonna do them". So I figured I'll see how long it takes her to do them, but after 2 days and both sinks full plus the pans on the stove I got tired of looking at them. So this morning I took my sling and the brace off and did them. Needless to say while I was in the middle of doing them she comes in and guess what she says. Yup you're right she actually said again "I was going to do them Mom" I said well I got tired of looking at them, she didn't say anything just walked away. Now I am going to sit in my recliner and rest then later I will be getting ready to do my notifications and read your stuff as much as I can. Have a great day.

Hope your shoulder gets better soon! Oh yes, I've heard the "I was gonna do it" just too many times. They don't get away with that anymore because I make them do things NOW .

I do hope your shoulder feels better soon. Those are words I hope I never hear. One would think your daughter would help you out, especially given the condition of your arm. Lovely photo!

I sometimes leave them when there isn't all that many, but I figured she'd do them knowing I had the sling and brace on. Thank you for visiting and have a great Monday!

At school our classrooms have sinks. Many teachers eat their lunches in rooms. Some students need extra meals, etc. One of the things I did not care for about one of the two teachers I worked with was she dirtied the dishes, ate all the time, and never cleaned up.Some of the other paras did, but I would not. In the other classroom the man would finish his food, get up, wash the dishes, dry them and pack them back in his lunch bag. I admit to having dirty dishes here, but I wash them once or twice a day. I thought maybe you were going to say the hot water from the dishes made your arm feel better.

I would sit down and have a little chat with her and advise her that you pull your weight, but you can not do the dishes while you are healing.

How about a slight hint to her like "Are you going to do the dishes tonight or should I take my sling and brace off?"

@gr8nana6 I am sorry about your shoulder. Do you have a physical therapist to work on your shoulder? I am going to write you a message and share something.So, your daughter finally did the dishes.
