What does your husband do when he gets bored? Let me tell you what Grumpy does …. or did, on Sunday.
Sunday after I made our donuts for breakfast, Grumpy came out in the kitchen and started to pester me. I was still in my pj’s, had finished frosting the donuts and was getting ready to wash up some dishes. Well, he was bored and when Grumpy gets bored…..I get attention. ha ha. I guess I shouldn’t complain about that because any other time I’m wanting his attention and he’s glued to the Outdoor channel. So, Grumpy comes out and pokes me in the side, leans over me, wants to know what I’m doing, what I’m making, and just plain pestering me when I’m trying to get things put together so I can take photos of my donuts. Then he starts suggesting how we can reorganize our cupboards and make more room, get rid of some things we never use. He had suggestions about how to rearrange some of our pots and pans to make more room. (we have this house with really low ceilings and therefore, our cupboard space and under counter space is limited to what we can put in and on them). So, we start moving around pots and pans and taking things I never use, cleaning them up and putting them in a box for Chris (if he wants them). What started out as arranging my pots and pans, turned into a four hour chore that ended up with cupboards like you see above. BTW, Grumpy is the one who put those cans in place. The only thing that makes it not totally OCD is that you can see it didn’t matter to him if the labels were all facing front!
So, tell me now….does your husband do this to you? Or does he have something else he does that turns into a chore ends up not being a BAD thing? I have to admit. I’m pretty lucky to have someone like Grumpy – someone who’s organized and likes order. I’m like that myself, but it helps to have someone else help out when you get in a rut and I admit, Grumpy sure is better at it than I am. The apple didn’t fall too far from the tree either because his daddy isn’t much different. As a matter of fact, the joke around here is their nicknames at times are “Martha” and “Martha 2”. They have a knack for decorating and wanting things in order. Guess that “ain’t” a bad thing!
