i couldn't sleep

on wednesday (11/12/2008) i couldn't sleep while the kids were napping, so i decided to be productive instead.
...
i was having groceries delivered (i will be working on a separate post) that morning, so i cleaned out and reorgainzed BOTH fridges/freezers to make room for the incoming food.
...
i put away ALL of the groceries (usually there are a couple bags that hang around on the counter or table) (i don't know if you can tell from the pictures ... but it was ALOT of food)
while i was trying to put away our food in the pantry i decided that it needed to be organized, so i pulled EVERYTHING out and then putting it all back.
all my spices are in the 2 plastic containers so i can find everything easily and they are moved out of the way to get to the things behind them easily

while everything was out of the pantry i realized that my counters could use a good cleaning, so i cleaned them entirely (like COMPLETELY moving the microwave, etc.) while i moved the microwave ... realized it was nasty and scrubbed it super good.i also reorgainzed 2 cupboards to fit everything better (you know all the plastic bowls and containers that always go crazy ... plus all their lids)

i even had time to make dinner ... ranch chicken (similar to my butter chicken) and roasted potatoes

aidan kept himself entertained by watching yo gabba gabba and imagination movers ... plus playing with fashion. he's very into socks right now ... especially MY socks. these ones are pink with silver crowns ... haha! and he has foam blocks on his arms (he sitck his arms through the holes) it reminds me of popeye and his huge forearms!after the kids were asleep i went to target to return some items, did some dishes (i haven't had any dirty dishes on my counter for a week ... we've been trying to empty the dishwasher immediately and put the dirty ones IN the dishwasher ... what an amazing concept!)

then i sat down on my sofa, flipped on the tv and worked on my new project (which requires a separate post!)

just thinking about it makes me tired. my feet were aching by the end of the day, but my kitchen looks great and i feel better when i'm in there cooking or whatever.

Wow! That looks great. It is probably like having a whole new kitchen. I always love a space after it is newly organized!
