more where that came from

Published by at 8:40 am under just stuff


Basically, my life has consisted of lining shelves, opening boxes, praying to find my pretty dishes, and sweating.

Yesterday I broke into shelf lining roll number 12. I have two more full rolls to use up before I see if we need to buy more. I’m hoping we don’t because I’d rather spend that money on water balloons and try to snipe my brother-in-law as he comes home from work. I have been counting my blessings that my sister-in-law (wife of said brother-in-law) and I discovered that Costco, of all places, sells bulk shelf liner! Seriously, it’s much more liner for a much better price which is super good news when you have a lot of kitchen cabinets and drawers to line, in addition to the bathrooms. I finished with the kitchen yesterday (which makes me very happy) and now I only have the bathrooms left.

In the meantime, I like to leave the empty rolls out in the Morning Room to tempt my boys. They can’t stand that they are just sitting there on the counter, all empty and alone with no little boys to wield them as swords or ninja star launchers (paper ninja stars are all the rage over here this week). I’m saving them for projects with my boys, not just to be mean. 😉

For now it’s worth it for the chuckle I get every time I see one of them standing inches away from the forbidden empty rolls, a glazed look in their eye as they stand there breathing on them and wondering if they should just snatch one up and run for it.

Maybe I’ll be nice and give them one this weekend. Maybe ….

    Lol! You should just give them to the boys! Maybe they will tape them all together in one gigantic tube and put it on the stairs and create a super long small toy chute. Not that I’m trying to give them ideas or anything . . .

    You make me LOL! You also come up with the best projects so I am sure that the wait will be well worth it! 🙂
