Celebrating Women for the Real World



Manic Monday!

Have you ever needed a weekend to recover from the weekend?  That is how I felt Sunday evening while I was scheduling my patients for Monday.  Last week I had decided that I was going to dive in and redo my pantry during the weekend.  I think it needed a little help.

BEFORE:

pantry project - before

I dove into it Friday evening and finished Saturday afternoon. The first thing was to empty the thing out (OMG…that was scary); then the fun part, the demolition of the shelves and supports. I patched up the drywall and then painted; leveled the new support and hung and anchored the track. It was actually pretty easy to do, I even assembled the rolling cart. See what you think of the finished project:

AFTER:

G2 had his coaching debut this weekend. He is coaching 5th grade football and they had their first game on Saturday. It was so cute seeing the little ones and I brought back so many memories of G2 at this age. Funny, when I looked at all the pictures Sheri and I took, he had his arms on his hips the entire time. Sheri said that he had his “Coach Stance” down pat.

Saturday evening Sheri and her daughter J came by and we started making mums for homecoming. We should finish up Monday evening so we will post some pictures. That’s all for now, we hope y’all have a great week.

    We just finished an exhausting homecoming last week – where they had ‘things’ every single day and night of the week and exhaustion was pretty much MY theme of the week… however, as tired as I was of the hullabaloo, at least our part of the USA doesn’t do anything with fake mums… I’m counting myself LUCKY on that fact. LOL. Good luck – I remember your posts about those things last year!
