House of Order--it feels good.

I have felt like I've done more than usual today. But, you almost would not be able to tell. I actually have this comic strip cut out and on my fridge. I'm sure many people can relate.

Today we pulled out new silverware!!! This nice set of silverware was given to us as a wedding gift, and it's been sitting in a box since. NOT because I didn't love it, but because we already had some junky, used silverware, and I insisted on being frugal and using them until they were all used up. Well, they've reached that point. I actually had one piece SNAP in half, just as a plastic fork would. Unbelievable! Anyway, I really like our new silverware. There's a lot of it though. Now we have two different sizes of spoons and forks, and some fancy serving spoons. Time to invite YOU over for dinner.

And of course, you can't pull out the new stuff without thoroughly cleaning their new home. Which led to cleaning out the fridge. Cleaning up papers. Storing big baby toys away in the closet. And officially packing away the bottles and other little baby items.

Next on the to-do list--clean my carpets. If any of my readers happen to have a rug-doctor coupon you don't want, feel free to share.

Awesome comic strip - I can totally relate. But still it always feels good on those kind of days. :)
