I'd rather be blogging...

How did this...

Fit into this...

Argghhhhh! I'm cleaning out the kitchen cupboards which are to be ripped out with great gusto on July 30 (or thereabouts). So I've got to do this about 10 more times before the week is out. These are just the shelves of colouring books and arts and crafts. We haven't hit the 2 year old cereal boxes or 1000 year old hermetically sealed jars of Chinese preserves yet.

We're the "House of Expired Goods" junior. My parents' house was the first given that distinguished honour. When they downsized and stayed with us for a few weeks, some bottles of 3 year old salad dressing somehow made it from their fridge to ours. (Believe you me, vinagraitte doesn't age as well as wine).

Starting to get stressed about the reno that's coming up FAST! Breathe, just breathe...

We're trying to sell our place, which forced us to 'declutter' so things would look nice...what a process, and I LOVE not having medicine that expired in the 90s hanging around anymore! Pain in the butt, yes, but so great when you're done. You'll get those nice new cabenits in there, and you won't want to go to bed even...you'll just be standing in your kitchen, looking around. :)

Oh I am so envious of your renovation! I know it's a huge inconvenience for a while, but you will be so happy when it's done! Good luck!

And my nana is the queen of keeping expired goods in her fridge. It's so gross sometimes to see what she's hiding in there!

I recently did the condiment clean out. I swore I had JUST done this, but I still had a lot to throw out. Part of me hates throwing stuff out, and part of me loves it.

Have fun with your remodel! You must give us updates. We're just starting to plan our kitchen remodel and it's already worrying me to be without a kitchen for so long.
