Now THAT'S What I Call Productivity

So, as you know my word for the year is MOVE. Last night we really got movin. First Ron and I came home and he cooked dinner. After dinner I decided that it was time to do some rearranging. I have this basket on top of my fridge that hold paper cups, plates, plastic forks, etc. Well, recently I was at Hobby Lobby and saw this cute little bin:

It brings out the green accents that I have and the lady bugs match the ones on my valence. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with the bin but I knew I had to have it. Last night I realized that I could use the bin for my paper stuff and use the basket to hold mail and other things that need to be readily (but in a cute way) accessible. That led to the fact that where I wanted to put the basket was where my mixer was and so I asked Rondell to make room in the pot/pans cabinet. Now, mind you we don't have that much cabinet space but I was determined to make this work and I knew that my husband AKA "Tetris" would make it happen.

So, moving the basket from the fridge caused us to clean the top of that, which led to me cleaning the whole outside of the fridge, which led to me cleaning the walls in the kitchen... After that I moved to our 1/2 bath and scrubbed that thoroughly, even using a toothbrush! The faucet looks almost brand new. Then both kids had a bath, Jamison read me a story for her reading record for school, we had Caleb cry-it-out to sleep (yes, we waited SO long for that...) AND we watched two taped shows of Private Practice.

I'm on the move!
