Today was a promising day, our first Saturday not having to go to a soccer game or football game to cheer, we were just going to stay at home and do some laundry and organize a little. It was going to be such a great day.
So I went to the deep freezer to pull out a pork loin to throw in the crockpot, and realized that said pork loin wasn't completely frozen, and it's been in the freezer for weeks. OH NO! The freezer isn't freezing!
So all of my plans for just organizing closets, turned into moving tons of food from the deep freezer to the other freezer, a cooler, and the kitchen sink. Then cleaning up the mess as the deep freezer defrosted (it's an upright, so it makes a mess. I'm sure there's a way to do it with out making a mess, I just don't know what it is yet) But the good news is that the freezer is working again, I've moved all the food back to where it goes, and I've straitened the house back up. Isn't it amazing how one thing being thrown off in your house effects everything else, and throws it off too?
While I had all the food out of the freezer, I decided to move it over, and rearrange the laundry room all together. I guess it's more of a "mudroom," I've never really known what to call that room out there. There's the freezer, the dogs' crate they sleep in, and the litter box (ew). I then decided it's time to start a new project: a small remodel of the laundry room area. It's just a wreck out there, no one has ever bothered doing anything with it, and I just can't stand it any longer, since I spend so much time out there. For Christ sakes, there's freaking green astro turf for the flooring! It's got to go.... SOON!
There are cabinets in the laundry room, and they're going to stay, they just need a good coat of paint to cover up the yellow (I've got to get some pictures so you can see the green astro turf and yellow cabinets), and we've got to replace the subfloor, for several different reasons, and then some new flooring. I've been pinning away ideas on Pinterest tonight.
I really think this is a project that we could tackle ourselves, but when I brought it up to Joey, he told me to call and hire someone. Of course, it could have something to do with the fact that I'm trying to plan home improvement projects in the middle of deer season and he's worried it will interfere ;)
So coming up next, to show you some of my ideas for the space, and some pictures of the actual room.
(Do you see how this went from a freezer not working to it leading me to decide to remodel the room? Yeh. That's how my mind works.)
