I need to get back on track, we have company coming for Thanksgiving, they need a place to sleep.

Went through most of the kitchen drawers and sorted / threw out the usual clutter that gathers in there. Got rid of a bunch of old phone charger cords. Also put some glassware and a rice cooker in the goodwill box. Tonight I'm going to tackle the mass of lidless plastic food storage in the cabinets and see if I can find a better way to organize it.

Forget organizing the tupperware / plastic food storage. I went through the cabinets and pulled out every piece of plastic storage ware and lid that I could find. Then I matched them up and threw away anything that didn't have a lid or dish that went with it. How on earth did I have an entire trash bag full of containers and lids that DIDN"T MATCH?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?! I think I probably threw out 50 lids and about as many containers. It's like the food processor parts that I found (also thrown away) that didn't fit either food processor that I own. How did these get in my kitchen? I've only ever owned the 2 food processors that I currently have, it's not like one broke and I just didn't get around to getting rid of the accessories.

and don't even get me started on koozies. we don't use them, we've never used them. I don't intentionally go out looking for them. Why is it that every time I clean out a kitchen drawer I find at least 5? I throw them away, then the next time I clean out the same drawer there's 5 more.

Sorry for ranting. But seriously, where does all this stuff come from?

So last week we finally got a move on the bathroom reno, only been going on since 'April'. 🙄 Well dh didn't want to move the toilet while 'demo' the tub w/ a sledgehammer, needless to say we now have to replace the toilet. Anyways.... those bigger pieces of the cast iron tub, then the toilet will be loaded up and put into the dump tomorrow. Our basement has become a terrifying place of hording crap. So maybe I'll work on that today. I did manage to drop one box of clothing off at a friends house 2 days ago.

    Yesterday from DS room took out the TV stand that was not being used and put a desk in there instead.
    I am going to paint that TV stand and change the door knobs and place it in the basement and from the basement out will come old tube tv and stand.

    From the basement I have 3 full bags of books to give family/coworkers. 8 boards games to go out.

    4 - 15 gallons containers of Dinosaurs big ten. swords, dress up clothes with shields and more and lots of cars, trucks other toys to give to great nephew. A small tub of paint supplies to give up.
    I found a few things for American girl dolls including a horse saddle to give to DD girl that she bbsat.
    I took down a train table, I couldn’t find a home for that so I slid it under the couch. All the Legos that were on it are now in 20 gallon tubs down in the basement.
    I have 3- 15 gallons tubes for trash.
    Nothing is under the ping pong table now, prior it was completed full under there.
    I found a shower liner in the paint supplies today DH traded it and a new curtain out.

    I sent DD at 4pm all the stuff I pulled out at 10pm I sent new video of it all cleaned up. It rain here hard all day. So it was a great day to do it.
    Sell the Lego’s, do you live in the Midwest, I would buy them. When did Legos get so expensive.

    Yeah we gave up on trying to mulch our leaves. It was so wet from the snow and then the rain we would have just made a large mess in the yard. Spring clean up is not going to be fun!

    1 box partly filled for goodwill. I was going to work on more today but sick kids means that PTO needs help running the book fair. So hopefully this afternoon I can make some headway in the basement.

    I dropped off the last items gathered from the basement Monday. - that we’re to be given away.
    An extra TV stand is down there still. I do like the TV stand that I painted.
    I am going to put up a small Xmas tree down there- that we already have.

    yup, we are joking in eastern washington that this year we had 'fell' in place of fall. we've had snow a few times since september :scared: it's hasn't hung around long but enough to weight down the trees and pull all the leaves off. a couple of rounds of heavy winds and our property was covered in all the pine needles we would normally see accumulation over months and months. on one of the rare decent days dh took the lawn tractor out and ran it over all the graveled areas to mulch/blow so we don't end up with a slip and slide driveway.

    what we would normally do winterizing wise by mid november got finished last week so we managed to toss some tarps and insect traps that are beyond re-use. i got dh to figure out which of the outdoor spring/summer equipment batteries are in need of replacement for next year and when the equipment got stored the batteries got pulled to dispose of at the local auto parts store.

    Beef Stew with Farmer market potato’s and carrots, so good.
    Frozen Meatballs And spaghetti.
    Just ran out of milk. Pretty darn good for mot grocery shopping, but my husband stopped in Kwik Trip each morning and picked up an Egg Muffin and 2 Bi waters a day. He had 7:00 am meetings and he never got up in time to make breakfast.

    I cleaned the rust off my wrought iron swing bench and my dh spray painted it and we took it up to my DD’s house. She wanted it for her front porch.
