Seriously, it has become Joe’s work area.
Any flat and available surface that is easy for him to get to has been commandeered by Joe.
I’m not going to complain. Especially since he fixed that Formica strip that has been driving me bonkers for about five years now. I’ll just work around him. If he gets wet and soapy…..well that is the hazards he will just have to deal with 😀
Today’s space is the cluttered mess of a counter area that has been long neglected.
Our home does not have a “Medicine Cabinet”. Well, that is not exactly true because we really do have.
Because I can be a “Slave Driver” too, I gave Joe the task of going through all of his prescriptions from 2007 and earlier and making the decision what gets tossed out and what gets kept.
During the purge and cleaning session I found the missing “Phantom Of The Opera” cd’s. We can now enjoy the music during the cooking of Joe’s Christmas feast. Our kids often make reference to hearing this music – LOUD – while Joe did his Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners 😀 That is one of the fond memories they have of growing up in our home during the holidays.
Man, does it ever feel good to get one nasty mess tackled and tamed 😀 Plus I have finally located all of my cork hot pot holders and they are all together in one space. Under Joe’s water jug when we are on the road.
Tomorrow, and quite possibly the weekend, I will be making my way to the other corner of the Kitchen/Dining Room and getting that area cleaned up.
All the cookbooks I had on the counter I cleaned today will be moved to the old microwave cart that is jammed in the corner.
Progress is being made on my home. I have several rooms that are clean and clutter free. It feels so good to walk through a room and not have to dodge stuff. It is even better to look at surfaces that are not covered in a layer of dust. Thank you Flylady 😀
