For this week's Monthly To Do List I'm headed back to the kitchen. So much living takes place in the kitchen! I don't know about you, but I fight a constant battle against dishes, crumbs, and piles of mail. Yet, a clean and organized kitchen affects every other area of family life. Being able to make meals without having to clear off the counter saves me time that I could spend elsewhere. And being able to put the dishes away without having to play "Who-Can-Force-the-Drawer-Closed" saves my sanity. So, I'll be tackling several areas of my kitchen that call out to me every time I walk into the room. I might even take on some of those tasks that don't tend to scream for my attention, and are easily overlooked. And, as always, don't worry if we don't get the entire room in perfect condition. We'll be visiting this space again soon!
