Just hafta HÖFTA

Yes, Brad, I did have several purchases, but they were all for school. 🙂

One purchase was the HÖFTA drawer dividers. They are made for organizing your socks and such, y’know – for the rich OCD who are too good to use old six-pack cartons like me.

A couple of years ago I put a sliding drawer-thing in a kitchen cabinet for our silverware. It worked out just fine except the baskets would fall over. Old Lauren solved that problem with what was on hand: foam core board. Over time, it has suffered, and every time I would open that cabinet I’d think that something different needed to happen. Then I closed the cabinet door and the problem magically went away. Every time.

Thanks to IKEA and their handy dividers, all is well!

As an added bonus, the leftover pieces are a huge hit!

Oh. House update: I poured cleaner in some drains, put bleach in the dehumidifier tube, cleaned the laundry sink and washed the west wall in the kitchen and a few cabinets.

    That’s cool. It’s super-customizable. My kitchen drawers are a mess. I should organize them.

A quick trip to Kansas City

Rachel had invited me to go along to Kansas City way back in…. April(?) when she and Anna were going to have a free weekend. (Sam and Gracen were away for basketball.) Our plans were cancelled due to weather, so this is a make-up weekend that also happens to fall on Anna’s birthday! Saturday we […]

Nothing is safe.

Soooo…. this morning when I came downstairs, Ralph was eating the strap off an umbrella handle. Let me be clear – not just ‘chew’, but gnaw off and eat. If you leave your jacket in the chair, he will eat the drawstring. If you leave out a spool of leather ‘string’ from an art show? […]

Just great.

Remember my villain scratch from Ralph? Well, after scooping the poops in the basement, I was carrying Emme back upstairs – holding her upside down so I could examine a bump on her chin – and Lloyd dropped something on the stairs. She launched herself off me, and now I have a giant red scratch […]

While driving to Wal*Mart on Sunday, I was struck by something in the telephone poles. Hmmmmmmm….. (Thank you for the screenshot, Google Earth.) Did you know that we are the St. John Foxes? Huh.
