Sure, they liked the idea of getting things in their rooms fixed up, and hopefully we will get to that, but as I read about this landing strip thing, I suddenly see the cure project spiraling out of control. I have a landing strip — it is a whole mud room devoted to this very thing — and if I am going to be honest, it is pretty functional. But kids walk into it and explode and the shards of the explosion have this way of ricocheting all over the house.
It really is a backpack and school paper and project issue. I have my mail under control (for the most part) and a place to put keys, take off boots and outside clothes. And if it were just me, this day #9 thing would have been a piece of cake, as in already done. But it is those backpacks that give us trouble. If they open up — watch out. Am I the only one that needs a kid cure?
In this case, my immediate reaction was shame. (How did we let this pantry get that bad? Can I share this on Apartment Therapy and live to tell about it? Ugh!). But we worked through it. And it got worse before it got better — that middle image is when Zippy, our dog, had to jump in and help after a container of oatmeal on a high shelf toppled over us and spilled everywhere.a new local business. They are wonderful — the lavender is (of course) relaxing as can be, but the jasmine puts me in a whole new state of mind. I had a jasmine plant next to the sofa when we lived in London. It is where my daughter was born and where I cared for her as a newborn. The smell of jasmine takes me right back to that warm nested newborn feeling and time. I am really enjoying having it here in this home… it has me thinking that even though this room spray is lovely, I might need to get a new real jasmine plant. More Cure ideas!
