When I was off to go to the dentist on Thursday, I had some time before my appointment, so not being one to sleep late or lay around I started cleaning out my disgusting kitchen cabinets. I really wonder how two people who aren't home all day long can create the mess that Irv and I create in our home. What is with us? We toss crap on the kitchen table rather than sort through it or just put it away. We shove things in drawers and throw things in the cabinets. Oh how I wish we were tidier.
So, I pulled everything out of the food cabinet and decided to put the dishes in the food cabinet and the food in the dish cabinet....chuckling all the while....because Irv HATES change!
I can't even begin to tell you how much he hates it. The tiniest little wrinkle in the norm can throw him into a fit of frustration.....in a funny way of course....sort of.
Then I moved the aluminum foil and baggies and freezer bags into the dish towel drawer and the dish towels into the foil and baggie drawer. The rest of the cabinets I just emptied, wiped out and put back in order.
I couldn't get over our little spice cabinet. How on earth do I accumulate so many little containers of spices when I don't even cook? I think I find a recipe, buy the stuff, cook it once and then never again. I had spices in there that had expired in 2006 and 2007!
It definitely looks better now!
When I got home from the dentist, I quickly finished up what I had started before the numbness in my mouth wore off. Once it did, I didn't really give a crap what the cabinets looked like.
Friday morning when I woke up long before the alarm....I knew there was no way I would be working. I slept in.....until 6:00 a.m. and then decided that the only way I would get through a long day with a throbbing mouth, head and face was to do something. I would work on the cabinets a bit, ice my face a bit, rest a bit and so on throughout the morning. By noon, my energy was sapped and I ended up doing very little else.
So, are the cans in your cabinet in alphabetical order?
