Tuesday Time to Tackle: If You Give a Guy Some Storage Shelves

If you give a guy some storage shelves, he's going to want to put them in the garage. 

In order for them to fit in the garage, he'll want to move the freezer.

In order to move the freezer, he'll need to empty the contents.

In order to empty the contents, he'll need to fill the coolers. 
 
In order to get the freezer through the door, he'll need to take the door off the hinges.  

Once the freezer is in its new spot, it will need to be refilled.  The guy will need to bring the coolers back to the freezer. 

He'll put the door back on its hinges.

Once the freezer is in its new spot, and the door is back on its hinges, the guy can start assembling the shelves. 

When the first shelf is put together, the guy will want to put it against the wall.  

When he sees where it needs to go, he'll realize he needs to clear a spot for it. He'll get the dolly and move stuff out of the way.  

When the floor in that spot is clear, he'll put the shelf against the wall.  

He'll want to set up the second shelf.  And chances are, if he wants to set up the second shelf, he's going to want a clear spot to put it in.

    1. Oh, thank you! It felt like we still had a whole cow's worth of meals--there was no way that freezer was budging an inch without us first unloading the weight of the food.

  5. Awesome! Here's a major difference between your mouse and mine; my mouse would have abandoned the whole thing halfway through and there would have shelves in the middle of the floor with all the stuff he was clearing out in heaps around it, and he would be sitting in the living room eating a cookie.

    1. LOL. We're not completely done with all the organizing, but the shelves are up and the floor is cleaner than it's been in years!

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…
