I have a real pantry!

I am just thrilled about this. For the last four years I have "made do" with pantry shelves all over the place. I had pantry shelves in the basement, pantry shelves in the laundry room, and pantry shelves (sort of) in the kitchen. It made it a real challenge to keep an organized kitchen. Today my darling husband took the time to put wrap-around shelving in a closet in my kitchen. I can only imagine that the closet was designed as a coat closet (hence the hangy-bar thingy). But there is a second coat closet off the living room- and we certainly had no need of two coat closets. So hooray for me! I am just itching to move everything in my kitchen over and start organizing. It will be fun to decide what goes where.

Also on the positive side is that we picked out a computer desk. I think. It is small enough for the space- but a little more than just a glorified desk. For now we will use the desk it is on, but I want to put my desk in Abigail's room for her art projects. The computer desk will have to wait a little while though, as the finances are getting tighter than tight. But I am excited about having a computer in my kitchen space. Then again, maybe that's not such a good thing! :-)

I think that's about it for today. I am exhausted. I spent today taping off the woodwork in the bedrooms for layers and layers of paint. I have decided not to paint the ceilings, which may not look right, but that's a lot of ceiling. Tomorrow I may throw together a little meal at our new house. Andy moved the dining room table over- so we'd at least have someplace to eat. Stay tuned!

Ha! I'd be in Heaven if my computer was in the kitchen... just make sure you have a nice reclining chair so you can even sleep in there! What more could you ever want?! :D
