Oh Hello There

I've been MIA-- I know... but trust me when I say that I may have been missing... but definitely not lacking in the action department.  Things have been busy around here as we wrap up our summer.  Wish I could have kept you all in the loop, but alas... our computer decided to die on us.  But... after a week and a half in the shop... it's back and better than ever!

I'll try to fill you in on all the details another time... since it is kinda late right now... but let me share a highlight... THE DOORS ARE UP IN MY KITCHEN!!!

Late one night, Doug worked overtime to put the doors and drawers on... and let me tell you... it feels fantastic.  We're still waiting for the rest of the finished parts-- crown, kick, decorative end panels, the open shelves-- and I need to get the rest of the hardware, but in the meantime, I've kinda been enjoying the fact that the doors are hard to open.  After months of the kids having open access to everything... they can't figure out how to open a darn thing :)  Sweet mercy... I may NEVER buy cabinet hardware for the rest of this kitchen!!

Today I started operation organization in the kitchen... I shuffled things around and really unpacked all my kitchen stuff the way I want it.

My spices are right at home in their own drawer-- and for the first time ever-- I have a tupperware drawer!  No longer will I be digging around in the hall closet for a matching container and lid-- it's all there, organized, and ready for action.  I can't begin to tell you how exciting that is...

Anyhow... I'll be back soon.  In the meantime, I'm going to keep organizing... and dealing with little Miss Attitude...

Goodness gracious.  Who knew "two" was going to be this much fun??
