Spring Cleaning - Kitchen Part I

I am so happy with my kitchen today! Yesterday I started a Spring Cleaning Challenge with Crystal at Biblical Womanhood. Although she's a few steps ahead of me, I didn't use that as an excuse not to jump in and join the fun! My plan is to work on the current weekly challenge Crystal has posted, and then - time and energy permitting - work backwards to cover the areas I missed. If that doesn't work, I'll just add them on at the end :) I don't have actual "before" pictures of my main kitchen area to post, but I do have some beautiful "after" pictures that I will put up as soon as I locate the USB cord for my camera. I have some pics of the kitchen from late last summer after a particularly difficult period of fatigue and constant bone pain that created a nightmare in my routines. I decided to fight back and not let the random set-backs keep me from having peace in my home. I think it would be unfair to post those horrendous pictures because that's not really where my kitchen started this time LOL I have been steadily working on decluttering and clearing space in the kitchen since November and made considerable progress before taking up this challenge. That said, I *did* take pictures of the inside of the refridgerator and freezer yesterday and have started flinging the nonsense. I hope to finish this project today and have another progress report this evening! I'm off to find my USB cord - will return shortly with shiny pictures!

Yikes-your refrigerator door is so...so...CLEAN! Your cupboards are bare! Now I feel bad- gotta go clean :)

Seriously, congrats! Glad to hear you are feeling better and the kids are doing good.

Don't overdo it, though. You don't need any setbacks.
