One of the things that I remember from being a teenager, was washing the dishes in the kitchen sink.
Mom and I lived in apartments and had to make do with what ever sinks came in the apartment. Where my husband and I live now, we have the split sink, you know two sided.
It is a whole lot easier to wash dishes now with two sides to the sink than just one. I’ve worked in restaurants where they would have these giant sinks that a toddler could take a bath in, but the sink would have three big sides to them. Doing dishes there could really get hard on my back. At least now the sink at home is at the right level where it doesn’t get to the back very much. We tried paper plates for a while, but you still have to wash the pans that are used, and it always felt like throwing money away after eating. Oh well, back to the old kitchen sink again. At least I’m taller now.
