Organizing Kitchen Cabinets

I don’t know about you, but every now and then, when I open a kitchen cabinet, some of the items that have been put inside the cabinet seem to take on a life of their own and jump out (or fall out.) That often brings about a few minutes of re-organizing the items. Often I can reduce the load by checking the expiration dates on food items (and purging the ones that expired) and matching lids to bottoms of travel mugs and plastic storage containers. One thing that I use to help organize my plastic storage containers was actually designed for use as a pots and pans organizer! That works great!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I hope you have a sweetheart in your life who shares this special day with you. I love romance and Valentine’s Day is such a great idea to spend a day dedicated to romance and appreciating the people who you love. Tell me – did you get candy or flowers or something else for your Valentine’s gift?

I got a big box of chocolate truffles and a big mylar balloon. It was so nice! The candy was on my desk waiting for me when I got to work. That made the whole day so much sweeter!

7 String Bass

When I was a very young kid, I seem to recall my father teaching me that the bass guitar had only four strings, and that you tuned it to the tune “My Dog Has Fleas” as you hummed it! So I was very surprised to learn, as an adult, that some bass guitars have more strings than that, and now I’m wondering if maybe I dreamed up the entire occasion of my father teaching me that lesson! Anyway, I was just remembering that lesson when Mark told me that he was thinking about buying a 7 string bass. What will they think of next?

New Year’s Eve

I had to work today, but it was only a half day. My boss was generous enough to let me only work from 9-1 every day this week so I can spend afternoons visiting with my son. That works out great because by the time I get home my son is just getting out of bed. He never used to be a night owl before going to college, but he is now! So it has been nice being able to come home early and visit with him a while before I have to go to bed! I don’ think I’m going to try to stay up until midnight, though; I haven’t done that in years! Besides, I’m having a big family dinner here on New Years Day, and I need to get some rest!
