so here is my organized pantry.
this is, sadly, the only place we have food so if you are thinking that's not quite a year supply...you would be right. it's no where close. hopefully when our shed is here we can move things from the basement into it and that will be our cold storage area. hopefully.

we are anxiously awaiting our shed! b wants to clear out the garage and i want the toy room cleared out so we can finally use it for cold storage! i am so excited.
today i organized our pantry and ordered some lettering from lynette for my shelves. i am really excited about that.
i love spring and what it brings. spring cleaning! i love organizing everything that has been disorganized for a whole year.

last night i was folding laundry and putting it away. m and f were playing downstairs. i went to put the towels away and i heard a loud bang followed by a wailing scream. i ran downstairs and there was f with a folding chair on top of him. the chair hit his eye and lip. pour baby...we got the bleeding to stop but he wouldn't keep anything cold on his eye. and i'm not surprized. so now he has a black eye. i actually thought it would be worse...and it could have been but he's tough.

side bar: sunday was testimony meeting at church and as i listened to some of the women in our ward bear their testimonies....i thought to myself....they are my tender mercies. because when they share what they are learning or what they have learned with other it builds my up and edifies me. i gain so much quite strength from these incredible women. i am so lucky and grateful to be a part of this.
after picking up the kids from school i started sanding the wood for craft night. i could only do 10 at a time. there were so many and it was kind of cold outside. i also started spray painting the s family room shelve. i was freaking out tuesday night because the calendar that i ordered for melynda's baby shower had not come yet and it was wednesday night. after craft night i went to my mail box and there it was! boy was i happy. wednesday i spent most of the morning tying ribbon on it and using the leftover sticks to embellish it a bit more. it was so cute. i tried to stick with a monkey theme. i also made her a funny monkey notebook that she can journal in for her new little one. i really enjoyed making this one.
thursday b stayed home because he was sick. fever, cough...i made him meals he never ate, asked if i could get anything for him but he said no...while watching smallville without me. thanks. just a bit jealous of his sick day off. my mother in law took the kids early in the morning and i tried frantically to finish my file folders so i could take them to get laminated. i got 14 of them ready but by the time i was done it was time to head to the school to volunteer. so right after i went straight to laminte and buy spray paint for the family room shelves. after that i came home to chat with my mother in law then it was off the pick the kids up from school. b was trying to rest so i decided to take the kids to joann's to get velcro for my file folders and while we were there, a picked out some star wars fabric for his piano bag i've been meaning to make him. for a year now. he was happy. we came home and i had the kids practice their recital pieces for that night. i ran over to lynette's to drop off my cards because i wouldn't be at card swap due to the kids piano recital. i played with a and he did a great job. i am so proud of him and k for all the progress they have made. then i came home to see that ga was another rerun... i was a little miffed. so i went to lynette's to get my cards and some women were still there so i stayed to chat. i then came home 15 min. before leaving again for soccer.
that was one long day.
now friday is here and i can relax and just do laundry until after the kids get home. then it's off to piano lessons and violin lessons. i still have to buy a gift for em, cause we're celebrating it on sunday. i really am starting to hate birthdays in feb. and march. no offense to those of you who have one in either of these months. i have 2 kids born in feb. but the cost of gifts really adds up quickly. my budget and time and energy are shot. i am excited for m's friend, taegan though. my mom was born on march 17th so it will remind me of her.
better go. i hear a little dustin baby crying.
