Cleaning day has come again, and with it my weekly “Nooks and Crannies” project. Last week I knew I should do the pantry, but tackled the less foreboding tupperware cupboard instead. (I liked Kellys term for theirsthe avalanche cupboard.)
This week, I did the dreaded pantry! It had become a jumbled mess! I think the last time I fully redid it was before Keegan was born. It is SO nice to have it organized and scrubbed down again! I keep opening the door just to gaze inside and admire my work. Keegan, however, is disappointed. His favorite playroom was the pantry and now things arent as accessible to him. Seeing the pantry door open, he scooted in, looking around for his special toy–a can of V-8. He loves that can of V-8. He rolls it, chews on the rim, smashes imaginary bugs with it, and plays hide-and-seek with it. Now he can't find it in the new organizational scheme. Poor Keegan!
It has been a busy day, I also did surgery on Kairas special doll, Kalissa. (Yes, even the dolls have K names.) I should have repaired all four of her limb joints when her leg came off several months ago, but for some reason I didnt fix one of the arms. Sure enough, the arm Id left alone needed repair. If your daughter has a Goetz Precious Day, a Vision Forum doll, or an American Girl doll in need of such surgery, here's a site with a pictoral guide to restringing. The author of the doll repair article is Taffy Cheerful. Her name reminds me of Truly Scrumptious in Chitty-Chitty Bang Bang.
At any moment Kens dad and Mary (Ken's step mom) will arrive for dinner. It is time for the girls to scrub the potatoes while I get the side dishes ready.
