So as a Domesticated Diva, I am super organized and our house is run by the mantra “a place for everything and everything in it’s place!”…NOT! I am not Kate Gosselin. As a matter a fact I am currently working on gaining some OCD. Now as often as always I head to the grocery store with an empty mind about what our home needs and what we have a surplus on…and I tend to fail at guessing. So I decided to clean out the fridge and organize our pantry and start a weekly list. This is so everytime i come home with my arms full of groceries my husband dosent complain that i forgot everything he needs. I am trying very hard to maintain my newly organized fridge and pantry even though their mess is always behind closed doors. Maybe its time for some late spring cleaning at your house and find ways to minimize your stress of a mess and hungry husband! My fridge is still sorta messy but much more organized and one day I may even master that humidity level thingy on the drawer. Being a Domesticated Diva isnt always glamorious but I did wash out the shelves and the drawers from the fridge in my shower since that was the easiest place. A word of advice for that is watch those wondering mushrooms so they dont clog the drain!
I stood, a mendicant of God,
Before His royal throne
And begged Him for one priceless gift
For me to call my own.
I took the gift from out His hand,
But as I would depart,
I cried, “But, Lord, this is a thorn,
And it has pierced my heart!
This is a strange and hurtful gift
Which Thou hast given me.”
He said, “I love to give good gifts;
I gave My best to thee.”
I took it home, and though at first
The cruel thorn hurt sore,
As long years passed, I grew at last
To love it more and more.
I learned He never gives a thorn
Without this added grace:
He takes the thorn to pin aside
The veil which hides His face!
