What a day this has been! More like what a crazy few weeks. With the workers from our house work gone I really thought things would calm down. I was wrong.
Between field trips, calls to the insurance and doctors’ offices, visits to doctors’ offices, therapy appointments, school work, house work (painting and all related activities), soccer games and school breaks, in addition to all the normal things we have to do in life, there has not been a calm week all month. A few days here and there, yes, but otherwise we have been out of the house or had someone come by every day. I treasure the days that we can stay here, minus taking and picking George up from school.
Earlier this week, while preparing (cleaning up a lot of hot spots) for a home visit, I tackled the kitchen. This was about the day where I encouraged you, on Facebook, to choose one small job around the house and work on it that day. This bit was on my mind as I began working.
In order to sweep I had to pick up the floor. I had two choices – hide everything or actually put it away. It took about 30 seconds to decide to take the extra few minutes an put things away.
“While I am at it, I may as well hangs this up to.” I told myself.
It did not even take me 10 minutes (once I found the drill and not counting the break in the middle to go pick up George) to put this $1 new still with tags, garage sale find on the backside of the pantry door. For about $5, screws were needed, I have added a few more shelves to our limited pantry space without taking up any floor space. Yes, we have a basement that can hold items, but it is nice to have them right there when they are needed.
