I truly, honestly wish that I was a better housekeeper. I really try to keep house like Martha Stewart, but it always ends up looking more like Tony Stewart drove through. I would love to be more Felix and less Oscar! But when it comes to being Alice the Maid, I'm closer to Alice Cooper.
Humbly, I will concede that I am not utterly without some domestic expertise:
- I can create several days' worth of meals out of a three-legged chicken and a few cans of soup.
- I can soothe a baby while giving a spelling test, folding laundry, and performing triage on a toddler-dog accident victim.
- I can plan an out-of-state vacation for nineteen people without breaking a sweat or going over-budget.
With that being said, I still wish I could be one of those people whose every drawer and cupboard could be scrutinized at any given moment...but, frankly, I'm doing all I can just to keep the living room clear of contaminants and tripping-hazards.
So when I saw that I had been challenged to show you the inside of my bathroom cabinet today, my first thought was that February 24th is the anniversary of the day we adopted Mercy and Sam and no mom worth her salt would blog on such an important day as that!
Then I thought I should just clean the thing out, thereby not having to worry about what you might see in there! But that seemed a little dishonest...so I thought I might brave a before-and-after pictorial blog post...
But I just wasn't feeling that either. Have you seen what's in there?! No...you haven't! And for good reason! Sheesh!
What I decided to do was grant myself a little creative license and show you the most interesting item in my bathroom cabinet:
"What in tarnation is that?!" you may ask. "And WHY is it in your bathroom cabinet?!"
That, my friend, is a story all unto itself...and the topic of a fun little contest! I will reveal the significance of this item during the first week of March. Until then, I would love to hear your guesses! I might even offer a prize! Why not?!
One hint: There is no indication that it would go on a chain or any other form of jewelry.
One rule: If your last name is--or has ever been--Dutton or Bennett, you are ineligible to play.
One secret wish: I hope one of my readers really knows what this is!
See that you do not despise one of these little ones.
For I tell you that their angels in heaven
always see the face of my Father in heaven.
