Cooking, Sewing, Working, Traveling, Gardening and Pondering

Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential.

Ever have one of those heated discussion

about something is so small in the scope of life? Something that just shouldn't be used to waste time. That one topic that just gets a person so out of sorts they sputter and shake on this one topic that makes no sense.

Yeah, I've been there. Apparently, I am unable to keep a refrigerator cleaned out. I am totally and utterly incapable of this. My hubs insists I am a refrigerator moron. A complete derelict of past due born on dates.

I don't get how this is such a topic of discussion and angst. My mind is on the tragedy in Japan, on how what I do at Junior League could help my community be better, how I can pick up trash when I'm out walking my dogs so it's not in my neighborhood blowing around. My mind is not on how retched I am for not checking born on dates for freshness.

Is that your fridge or is that how the hubs wants the fridge??
It must be a man-thing because my hubster is the same way. When it's full he says, "We've got too much in here. It's wasteful. Do you ever clean this thing out?" BBBuuutttttt, when it's all clean he says, "Don't we have any food in this house?" LOL
Can't win for losin'.

If that is your fridge I need to get some tips from you on how to make mine look like that! I love that there is a fabulous looking cake right next to the low fat yogurt :)

I'm with you Amy. I hate to clean the fridge and will bribe my husband to do it!

My fridge is full of uneaten leftovers and other goodies that are past their freshness. I agree that in the scheme of everyday life that this is a low priority! So many other things should come first. When the things start to grow legs and are in jeopardy of walking away on their own I figure it's time to clean the fridge.
