What do I see every day in my kitchen? The bane of my existence--my kitchen desk. I thought it was oh-so-handy when we first bought the house, but in truth, it's just another dumping ground.
I must be a glutton for punishment, because once again I am joining up in Laura's 30 Day Organizational Challenge (click the link for all the details). And guess what? It's the same space that I DIDN'T organize in her Spring Challenge (read my Spring post here). The problem is that I could not find the right containers to help me (even with the expert Org Junkie's help!). So when she posted her Fall Challenge I wasn't sure if I was up for participating, but then earlier this week I found some things that I think might help me, so I'll give it another go!
I see other things in my home as well.
Every Monday our sixteen year old neighbor watches Kyle for one hour after Amanda and I leave for BSF until Terry gets home from work. It works out so that Terry doesn't have to rush home every week. Terry doesn't want to overuse him, but from the looks of things, it seems that this particular sixteen-year-old boy is enjoying reliving his childhood. Every Monday evening I see the product of their fun--a great train configuration, geometric designs on the driveway in sidewalk chalk, or the last two weeks since Kyle brought out Amanda's old Lincoln Logs:
When I uploaded my pictures, I saw that a certain three-year-old who will remain nameless had apparently been taking some pictures. Some of them weren't too bad. Perhaps he was looking to submit them to House Beautiful?
Others look like you would expect a picture taken by a three year old to look.
For that matter, they both look a bit as I imagine his general perspective affords him--a blurry whirlwind of activity.
