I swear I was going to have a guest post today and take the afternoon to write Blend thank you notes instead of blog.
I even went to my refrigerator to take a picture of “Mr. Board”, so that I could prove just how busy I am….
**Out of the norm: Subbing a lot (ELEVEN extra classes this week!), rehearsal almost every night from 7pm – 9:15pm, a new PT client.
Also “out of the norm” – the fact that I haven’t re-written the calendar in the last few weeks. I’m typically very anal about erasing and re-writing!
After I took that picture, I started thinking about how lost I’d be without my refrigerator. Obviously, it keeps our food cold. But it also keeps us RUNNING.
My refrigerator is the organizational hub for our family.
If I need to know what we’re doing tomorrow, I simply look at my board. If I need to keep an important document (that will be used in the next little bit), I stick it behind a magnetic chip clip. Birthday party invitations, coupons, important bills….they all get plastered on my fridge, in plain sight. Just like how graphing calculators help you cheat at mathematics, my fridge helps me cheat at remembering. I can’t forget our dentist appointment if the reminder card is staring back at me as I get ice cream from the freezer. Every single night.
Here’s my fridge:
White, old, gets the job done.
A quick tour (from the top):
Dentist Appointment Card – my mom cleans my teeth.
Used this exactly no times while nursing. But it made me feel better just having it there.
No clue what w93596 refers to.
Big Cat Coffee – Where we buy our K-cups! You can create your own sampler packs – it’s a hoot!
Geeked out a little when I found this “To-do” list thing yesterday at Walmart.
Cost – $2. Joy fulfillment – Level HIGH, bordering Level VERY HIGH.
There WAS a Travis magnet – where did he go? The Lindsay magnet misses him very much.
Sermon from when we went to church with Katie. The Lindsay magnet misses her very much too.
Behind that pink card lies the recipe to my sister’s coveted Buttercream Icing! I’m the only other person in existence that has it!
Total number of times I’ve made the recipe: Zero.
THIS one I can share! Chocolate fondue sauce – so good!
Mother’s Day gift? Christmas?
Clara’s feet…another Groupon that’s about to expire.
And as if showing you my fridge, saying “fridge” or “refrigerator” 499 times, or devoting an entire post to this topic wasn’t boring enough, now YOU get to join in on the fun!!
The “What’s On Your Fridge” Project
This is simple.
1. Take a picture of your refrigerator.
2. Write 2-3 sentences, telling me what I’m looking at. What you keep on your fridge. Why it’s important. Nothing too long – short is better.
3. Send the picture and write-up to me at firstname.lastname@example.org – NO LATER than next Tuesday night!
4. I’ll feature all of your submissions NEXT Wednesday in a post!!
I can’t wait to see all the various submissions! Appliance envy will ensue – I just know it.
QUESTION: Do you have a good memory? Are you a visual person?
