Well, The Best Laid Plans Didn’t Happen

I had planned on doing a long post this morning but Hubby had different plans for me today. I helped him put down the carpet tiles in the pantry. He still has a few small strips to fill in up to the wall on the right side.

Except for the area under the freezer, the floor will be done tomorrow. We need help from our son to move it and put the carpet tile down under it and then move the freezer back. Until this coronavirus is done, we will not see him.

As you can see I have been moving things back in slowly but surely. I am taking my time to make sure that everything is very organized and that I leave space for future purchases. We still have 3 shelving units to move back in when the carpet is done on the right. We also have two roll around origami carts on wheels to put back. 

So I have a lot of work ahead of me to get all of the food, HBA, and household goods back in the pantry. It will take me a few days especially since I am taking inventory of everything as I put it back to double check the numbers I have at the moment.

Also after almost three weeks of trying to get a Walmart pickup order I finally got a slot and I am picking it up tomorrow. I will show it to you and then wipe every item down and the counter I use to do it. Then we put it all on the breakfast bar and game table to dry and sit for a few days. Everything except for refrigerated or frozen items that need to get put away.

I will write the post after I take my shower and wash the clothes I have on to pick up the order. So it will be later in the day. 

So if I am not around for a while after that, it is because I am working very hard to get the pantry set up again.  Plus I will give Hubby some help measuring the last few tiles he has to cut.

Every Day

Not Pinterest Worthy But It Works For Us

While I am following doctor’s orders, I have been staying home and organizing a little at a time while resting in between. My stomach surgeon is thrilled that I have lost 26 lbs. and he released me today. Four more pounds and I have to get a few clothes in a smaller size. Mine are falling off of me.

Now am dealing with a different doctor from the 2nd hospitalization. He is doing a test next week which will tell if there is a problem. I am hoping not and that he will release me. I need my life back.

I had my grandson here and we played a lot of games because it was rainy weather. But Hubby spent much more time with him than I did so that I could do this project and rest in between. It was nice to see the two “boys” having so much fun.

Both of my pantries became really unmanageable the last couple of months. So they really needed some organization. Hubby is eating up most of the carbs in the house and I have donated a lot too. I do keep candy for the grandchildren. I also have a lot of baking supplies because I bake for family breakfasts and for neighbors and potlucks. Pictured above is the top of my large pantry.

This picture is the lower shelves and the floor area.

Next is the snack and cracker pantry.

I also cleaned out and organized my two freezer drawers in the fridge. I had a few freezer bins that helped. 

I have not been doing a lot of shopping. We have so much in our freezers and pantries that I only need produce and creamer about once every 10 days. 

I have done some shopping online though. I convinced Hubby to get a FitBit like I have so I ordered that. And for some reason, we have hardly any AAA batteries in the house so I ordered 12.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
