#1 Kinda Day!

Happy New Year!!
Here we go! 

Sounds easy enough...except, I'm sadly tempted to ask...
Which Junk Drawer?

Baha! ;)

Here's my "official" junk drawer. 
It's in my kitchen island...
Organize it?

This drawer is a catch-all spot for all the trinket junk that ends up on my kitchen counter.  I also store my box tops in here & some pens/paper & loose change & headbands & legos & protractors & cars & hand lotion & hand sanitizer & buttons & broken crayons & wine bottle stoppers & broken jewelry & mis-matching lost earrings &...

Ok, yeah...I guess I should clean it out.  ;)

Starting off with an empty BOX...these flaps were too long to tuck in, so I had to cut them off.  This is AWESOME, because I am going to use this cardboard for another organizing project soon!! Definitely meant to be! Happy Dance!

Here we go....
MUCH better!!
I'll have an empty baggie in there next week after we turn in our box tops at school. 
I'm going to take it back out & line my drawers with cork this next week as well.

I guess I'll be busy this morning with my other drawers (there are about six more that look just like the first one, ACK!!)...these two are next, the infamous "supply drawer" (tape, scissors, batteries, pens, pencils, etc) and the out of control "get ready for school drawer" (brush, hair doodles, water bottle for cow licks, etc).

meanwhile...Daddy P will be finishing up on this:

 & eventually, I am going to force myself to go upstairs & deal with this...(sob)...

(It will be SO worth it when I get it organized, but it's looking like a project for when my kids get back to school for me!)

Are you organizing today?  
I'm going to take a crack at a couple more drawers & head to the gym.


& This year I'm going to be including my prayer list on my blog. I hope that you might help me lift people up, the power of prayer is so amazing! 

This morning I wanted to include a prayer note...a friend of mine's husband was in a very serious car accident on Christmas night, he continues to be in critical condition after surgeries. His name is Brian Shaffer. He and Kendra have four small children. He is expected to recover, but is in a lot of pain. I'm praying for him and strength for Kendra as she helps him heal and cares for their children. 

Wishing you a #1 kinda day...

Happy 1/1/11!!
