Cleaning out the drawers, cupboards and cabinets

I am not sure what got into me over the weekend.  

But I went on a cleaning rampage!  I cleaned the kitchen drawers, the kitchen cupboards, bathroom cabinets, bathroom drawers, my dresser... I found a bottle of ipecac syrup that was dated expiration 2007.  Yikes, I think I cleaned it more recently, but maybe not!

I wish I got to the refrigerators, but alas I ran out of time and energy.  Maybe this weekend, when everyone else is out shopping on Black Friday, I will tackle my LEAST favorite job of cleaning out not one but two refrigerators.  They both need a overhaul, as it has been a while since I have taken everything out and cleaned the puppies out. (you too, right?)

Really I need to repaint the one in the garage.  I was thinking about using black chalkboard paint, as maybe it wouldn't rust up so quickly!  It is white appliance paint on it now, I think it would look so cute as a giant garage chalkboard.  Of course it wouldn't be so cute if someone wrote, 'Clean ME!' across the front of it.  Maybe I will have to rethink the whole chalkboard paint option.

Kimmie, please come to my house and do some cleaning. I bit off a lot more than I could chew with the amount of time I have allotted for cleaning. Tomorrow I need to get going on baking and cooking and have lots of unfinished cleaning projects staring at me....

I'm doing that too! Kitchen cupboards, and the tops of cupboards where I display stuff (covered in years of dust).

I recently saw a fridge painted with blackboard paint in a magazine and it looked neat.

Hurrah for chalkboard paint! My dresser drawers are painted with it, and it's so fun to have the option of leaving it blank for a bit or adorning it with encouraging scriptures, quotes, funny sayings or just random silliness. (A good way for your young ones to pass a couple hours, too... they would love it!)

I am amazed at how much you got done. I'm suddenly feeling a tad bit lazy. :) Hope you enjoy your holiday. May your hearts be blessed with the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ as you gather together.
