My house is in shambles....
I shouldn't be blogging about a perfectly messy house when there are people on the east coast with water logged homes and homes that seem to have blown away or homes that were batted like a baseball with an uprooted tree(s).
But, here I go anyway.
Yes that is my little pony on the TV.
Yes that is my little baby in the middle of all this mess.
There are definite problem areas in my house.
One problem area is the bookshelf right there between the entry way and the kitchen entrance.
I LOVE that bookself there...when the top is clean and there is nothing dumped right in front of it.
Can you see that my church bag (brown with polka dots), the diaper bag, a reusable grocery bag (bright green), and Nathan's backpack are all right there?
And the stack of mail that was on top of the bookcase has fallen off and is jumbled on top and all around the bags.
Yes, this is our dumping ground.
Each of these things have a place to go in our coat closet but we never put them away when we first walk in the door. I don't know why!
And then, as evidence of my church bag...they sit there for days.
Another problem area is in the kitchen.
After we go grocery shopping, all the cans wait on the kitchen floor until I have time and the desire to rotate the cans. So, the cans sit on the floor, spreading ever closer to taking up the whole kitchen floor.
Until October 23, I had had enough.
I got online just to dream of having some self rotating shelving and ended up impulse buying the Harvest 72" Food Rotation System from Shelf Reliance.
It's weird because I NEVER impulse buy anything but smaller grocery items.
I NEVER purchase anything over $20-$30 without discussing it with Nathan, in depth.
But, guess what!
They had one in there Scratch and Dent Discount category!
For 57% OFF!
It boasts storage for 406 cans!
We did text back and forth about it...so I DID NOT purchase this without Nathan knowing.
And well, it came in the mail yesterday.
(hence the HUGE shelf reliance box blocking our entry. AKA Marley's hot tub!)
And well, that put our house in shambles.
The scratch and dent section said that it could be scratched it could have slight dents but nothing that would compromise it functioning properly or its sturdiness.
It also said that the parts could be all different colors.
NOTHING is wrong with this unit.
Well, there was one cross bar that had a SLIGHTLY bent corner and Nathan got some pliers and easily fixed that.
Oh, and the SHELfReliance sign on the front top is scratched and smudged.
So, today we are working on getting our house put back together.
You know Saturday is a special day, it's the day we get ready for Sunday.
SO, we are getting ready for Sunday too.
I HAVE to make some nursery visual aids and singing time props because those little ones are eating me ALIVE.
Oh yea, Nathan is changing our front brakes.
But, there will probably be a post about car whoa's sometime this month...so I won't expound.
Just know that if you want to do something with us today....
PS - I'll be doing a house follow up...shambles resolved.
