I spent several hours organizing my “junk drawers.” (Yes, I have TWO in this house.)
They were a mess. How long has it been since they were sorted?
Well… I found this actual canister of FILM.
How long has it been since you’ve seen one of these?
There’s no before picture. I’m just too embarrassed.
But here is the after:
As my husband said, now they are not “junk drawers,” just “drawers.”
And as my daughter said, “I give it a week before they’re a mess again.”
On the night before Valentine’s Day, I noticed that Boo, age 12, hadn’t filled out her valentines yet. The box was still sitting on the kitchen counter.
I didn’t feel like walking up the stairs, so I texted her.
Finally I sent GG upstairs to tell her sister to stop messing around and come write out her valentines. But Boo hadn’t gotten my texts.
Apparently I was texting the wrong number the whole time.
A friend of mine made a bunch of these cool candle holders from “sparkling-cider” bottles for a ladies’ lunch with an Italian food theme.
After the lunch was over, she said they were up for grabs, so I took a pair.
I think they are very beautiful, reminiscent of red-checked-tableclothed restaurants and violin trios playing.
I thought of Lady and the Tramp eating spaghetti with meatballs as I set the table for dinner. This looks romantic, I thought.
My family did not agree.
“What’s this?!” said Boo suspiciously.
“Are we pretending to be fancy?” asked Little Boy.
Little Girl exclaimed, “They look like there is throw-up on them!”
And my husband’s mental associations were a little different from mine. They reminded him of an old shack he’d found in the woods as a kid, one that local hoodlums were using a drug den.
Not exactly romantic…. but I tried!
