It’s been so hard to find the time to blog – I’ve finally recovered my motivation that left me somewhere in about the 5th month of my pregnancy with Hannah. Now that she is a year old, I feel almost back to my regular self. So I’ve been motivated.
I’ve spent at least 30 hours this month deep cleaning and organizing the house. My walls, windows and blinds, – clean. The fridge and pantry, clean and organized. Clothes sorted in the kids rooms which are also clean and organized. Book cases – dusted. Clark built me a scrapbooking nook, that was my favorite spot to organize! (it gets it’s own post later!)
And our storage room. AHHH, I have to confess that when I finally finished that room, I’d go in there and just stand and absorb the neatness and organization in that room. I told Clark and he thought it was very insightful about my personality (he thinks I am slightly crazy, but he knew that already). I need organization, I crave order. Without it I don’t function very happily. Anyway, I still just love standing in that room!
Once the house was set to rights, I’ve turned the motivation to food. Not cooking it, preserving it. I bought a great dehydrater and have been using that (more info in a coming post), and purchased 20lbs of cheese (on sale of course!) and Daniel and I spent a few hours grating and bagging it for the freezer.
That is what this post is really about, my little helper.
Dan did the grating, I cut the cheese into chunks, and bagged. This little guy was worth his weight in gold!
