The mini pantry,
which runs along the 'hallway'
connecting the bunkhouse to the kitchen,
has been pretty much ignored.
Except for when it's been a tool receptacle.
But now that the real pantry is ready to be
I sorta needed the mini pantry ready, too.
I have this insane need to only put things away
which means I spend an obsessive amount of time
about what should go where.
In order to figure out what goes where in the pantry,
I had to know what all I could fit in the mini pantry.
Makes perfect sense to me...
Like I said, though,
the mini pantry wasn't getting any love.
So, Thursday night,
I left a note for the boys
asking them to drywall it.
Friday morning, Tony got after it for me.
Except that he was feeling miserable.
And the pantry isn't exactly completely square.
I did what any mom would do;
(attempting to ignore the persistent and increasingly worse back pain...)
Put up drywall.
And then I just sort of took over.
All by myself
I hung drywall!!
since it needed mudding
and all other available workers were in the loft
doing some essential job that obviously required all five of them
(T was here ~ yay!)
I did that, too!
My family is not appropriately impressed with my skillz.
Most likely something to do with the fact
that even the 5 and 7 year olds have helped hang drywall
and can 'pudd' with the best of them.
And the 12 & 18 year olds have done more drywalling
than many grown men.
