Today I’m working in the __________. Did you guess right?? A+ for you on the pop quiz!
The kitchen korner:
This is right behind my seat at the table. Needless to say, but of course I will anyway, I can’t ever sit properly at the table. I have to sit sideways, or something.
So, today was the day to tear down the tower.
First, I emptied the dust canister on the vacuum stick. It was sooo clogged!! Then, I felt better about putting it away in the laundry room.
Next, the shopping bags were hung on a pre-existing hook, just left of the window frame. Here’s hoping we’ll actually remember to grab them, on our way out to the store!!
The medicine went to the bathroom, where we keep it. The Febreeze, oops, generic air spray, off to the laundry room, with the vacuum.
Then, time to tear down!! Ah ha ha! I became Destructo Melinda!!
First box was half keep, and half donations.
Charging full speed ahead! Feeling pumped!
Second box was half and half, keep and donate too, just toys this time!
See that green frog broom?? Most annoying thing! When you sweep with it, it says “You missed a spot!” I do NOT need comments on my cleaning from the tools!! Hopefully they won’t miss it, cuz it’s gotta go!! Thanks, but no thanks, Grandmama!!
I kept the plastic, fake Tupperware- they all had lids!! Yay!! Kept some of the food, gave the tissues, and gloves to DD1.
Feeling wonderful!! Put away everything I’m keeping, put donate boxes, and expired food by door, all’s well!
Then, I turned around, and saw this, by the fridge:
Why is there a basket of laundry, in the kitchen?? Even more so, why is there coffee, and teepee in the laundry basket?? And why is there a bath toy in the kitchen?? Well, that’s cuz- kids. The laundry is all me. But even I’m puzzled by the coffee, and tp in there!! No matter, all put away now.
Oh, really?? What’s this in the hall, then??
Ok, ok, I put away the toy, tp, and coffee. Then I just set that there in the hall, for a minute! I was tired! I’ll do it!! (When I get around to it , [sotto voce] ) I heard that!!
Fine! [very grumpy tone] There! Happy now??
[smugly] As a matter of fact, I am, yes! Thank you!
Kitchen korner konquered!
