There are other things I thought I might need in a pinch, but I can't remember them all (I suck at those parlour games where you get a brief glance at an array of things and have to write them all down). We have a mobile dishwasher that sits in the corner of the room and I set the printer up on top of it. That way, if we need to scan or print something, we have a flat surface at counter level to set the lap top. The memo board is right there on the wall, just in case you need to read/leave a note. The longer I worked at it, the more I realized that I needed to make the space functional. And I think it is now. Plus, everything sparkles.
I think I'm going to treat my kitchen like I would a desk. It's a workspace and I need order and a minimum of clutter. Doc's off for the next two days and I hope we can keep the momentum up with the rest of the house. We'll take a break for dinner tomorrow at the Stark County Fair and have some fair food. I'm hoping to pick up an Obama sticker in the politickin' barn. Thanks to Vikki for the push in the right direction with her dead on assessment (as usual) of John McCain's VP selection.
Did I tell you Riley lost a tooth?
She also started the first grade. She's a rock star.
I hope you all have a great weekend. Maybe I'll take a picture of my newly scrubbed refrigerater to make you jealous.
