My Dirty Refrigerator

I’ve been traveling the past couple weeks for a conference and a baby shower, and am finally getting back into the swing of things back at home.  I opened my fridge this afternoon, to figure out what to make for dinner, and this is what I saw:

My Dirty Fridge

Notice the precariously stacked plastic containers next to the gallon of milk?  The two different types of pizza sauce (both opened) on the shelf above the sodas?  Here’s a close up:

Top Shelves

I didn’t realize I had so many different types of cheeses on the top two shelves alone (Eight in all…can you spot them all?  I’ll post the answers tomorrow).  So, take a look at my dirty fridge and feel better about your own housekeeping skills today!  We’ll see how successful my cleaning skills are tomorrow…

Happy Fathers’ Day!

It’s Fathers’ Day, and I’m thinking about all the great fathers I know…my dad, the boyfriend, uncles, cousins, friends, etc.  What makes them great?  It’ the way they hug you to make you feel better when you have a boo boo (and continue to pick you up when you need it as you grow older).  It’s knowing they’ll always be there to catch you if you fall (which gives you the courage to go after your dreams).  It’s the way they constantly brag to their friends and family about how their kid is “the best” at whatever they do (and sometimes what they haven’t done – to this day, my dad swears I would have been the next Diane Sawyer if only I’d have become a news anchor).  It’s the way they scare your boyfriends to make sure they’re good enough for you.  It’s the way they teach you how to do the things they do…in my case, this involved farming, paleontology, lapidary and gold panning, hunting, reading, astronomy, eating, and lifelong learning.  So, here’s to you dads…thank you for all you do and all you will do for us.  Enjoy your day!
