Am I a hoarder??
As I started putting things away in my kitchen I felt as if I was moving in all over again. I have so much stuff and I swear I must have some gypsy in my blood because I am not one to enjoy a lot of empty space. For some reason I feel like I should fill every single available nook and cranny and when I have company they are always looking around distracted when I am trying to talk. The comment I always hear is your place is so interesting. LOL Not sure if that is a nice way of saying hoarderish and/or junky but I hope not as that was not the goal. I did throw a lot of things away so I KNOW I am not as bad as those ppl on Hoarders…Buried Alive. Actually those ppl are just plain nasty and I am no where near that. I just like to save stuff for a future date or to sell or to give away or for my yard sales I been planning all of my adult life and have yet to have. SMH…
As I was putting spices away I looked around and you would think I cook on a regular basis up in this joint. I must say I am well equipped to make a decent meal but some of this stuff hasn’t been touched in a while. I wouldn’t say a real long while but I would say a good while. I do enjoy cooking sometimes. I plan on getting back into it and trying to live a healthier lifestyle because Subway, Taco Bell and McDonalds is certainly not healthy, no matter how many salads I get from them. I probably will feel a lot better once I start eating real food again too.
Anyway I am faaaaar from finished… but I am done for tonight!
Four of my grand kids are coming over tomorrow so I have to get some kind of order in here so they don’t kill themselves up in Nana’s house. They have been begging to come visit so it will be nice to see them but you know how it is with kids. One of my grandsons who is 6 this year will grab tools and if he is too quiet you have to check on him because he is likely to be taking a door off a hinge or something. That boy loves taking things apart and loves tools. He got it honest BUT… he can take his Mommas place apart, not mine…so I already know…put all of the tools up before he gets here. LOL
Oh and PS…I still have a lot of things to bring in the kitchen from the shed. I hope after all this I am not going to still be busting out at the seams I have 2 small drawers empty and two narrow cabinets. Pots will not fit in those narrow cabinets so I am a little worried.
consider this one a before shot because there are several things I am going to change in it.
I think I will get up early in the morning and go to the grocery store and get some food and cook dinner for my daughter and her family. That will be nice. …I have a taste for slow cooked pot roast, basmati rice and gravy, broccoli and apple pie w/ butter pecan ice-cream for dessert. Yup the year is almost over so I do need to fire up that stove and oven at least one time this year. LOL…
(I hope you know I am exaggerating when I talk about not cooking so don’t be thinking to yourself sooo that’s why she’s single. Noooo… I am single by my choice. I just like to joke and be funny but don’t let me make you have a bad impression of me. I can cook I just haven’t since I started renovating…5 years ago. LOL just kidding…there I go again…actually I been renovating the kitchen for 2 months)
