I’m a fan of lists, especially to-do lists. I like to have a plan of things I’m going to accomplish for the day, and I really like marking each item off once it’s done.
My plan got derailed rather early today when Stephan suggested I remove the doors from the kitchen cabinets. We recently refinished the counter tops, and our next plan is to work on the cabinets. My parents are coming later this week to help with that, so it makes sense that I do what I can ahead of time. So instead of dusting as I had planned to do, I spent the morning with a screw gun, removing the doors from the boxes and the hardware from the doors.
(Sometimes it helps to hold the door on with your foot while you take the screws out.)
It’s when you get really up close and personal with your cabinets that you realize that maybe you’re not the best housekeeper.
Now another exercise in flexibility comes: Cooking with the kitchen a mess.
And then I can get back to my regularly scheduled to-do list.
