Project Kitchen - Day 3

So today the kids thought Mommy went crazy!! After all, I'm the one who is always saying when I walk into the kitchen, "Hey, who took that out? Are you done with it? Put it away!!" or "Hey people, don't leave stuff out - I just cleaned up the kitchen!" or other things along that line.

Today I said, "Hey kids, lets take everything out of the pantry and put it on the table"
Them - "Are you sure Mommy? Aren't you getting the kitchen clean?" "Everything??"
Me - "Everything!!" "It'll be fun!!"

And it was! It took them a bit to get started. I'm sure they were waiting for the "who took that out" lecture but when they realized this was for real they went to it!!

And my pantry went from this (I'm ashamed to say):
To this:
Mr. Coffee, Kitchen Aid and Miss Blender all got major cleanings as well and look much better for it. In fact my daughter came and said they looked brand new - which is nice since all three appliances get used all the time.
So even though I'm not where I want to be yet (I have a few cupboards yet to clean) tomorrow I'm going ahead with the fun stuff (sewing for my kitchen, hanging up my plates and other touches that make it nice). I must get the kitchen back in working order and catch up with the rest of the housework this weekend. Mid-winter break is coming to an end. (Plus, if my family has to eat spaghetti one more night for dinner they might do something drastic!!)
