Pantry cleaning

Yikes! I just spent the last hour or so deep cleaning our big pantry/coat closet (don't ask-I don't like the shared space!)
Things I threw out: 
3 boxes of cereal
2 boxes of granola bars
2 boxes of Cookie Monster alphabet cookies (for the longest time those were the only cookies my son would eat & not everyone sold them ��)
2 boxes of instant breakfast
1 box of confectioners sugar 
2 boxes of brown sugar &
3 jars of jelly-the strawberry was the oldest item found, it expired in 2013. Everything else was between August & December.

It is with much sadness I report that we no longer have a royal guard at the hovel. Our big handsome Caine crossed the Rainbow Bridge on April 8th.
As I type I am tearing up but I keep reminding myself that he now has finally met up with our beloved Tasha who crossed the bridge in 2005. We had always said how much we wanted them to meet.
In his honor I am keeping his line in the blog description.(which I just realized is a few years old since he went up to 122 pounds)

We have begun the conversion of the upstairs 'formal' living room to a formal dining room. Hubby has finally agreed with me that a new dining room set is a good idea just not in the budget yet. Hopefully our wood floors (doing the same in kitchen too) will be done by the end of next month & I will have a dining room.

Converting the nursery to an office is on hold since we moved the little guy back in there. Between the new carpet & furniture in the big boy room we finally realized that there were fumes making us all semi sick.we have had the door closed while it airs out & gets vinegar wipe downs.

I did finally find the desk I wanted. It's a little more than I planned to spend but it has some built in cubbies as well as a built in file cabinet so it balances out & saves on more furniture shopping. Even though the room isn't ready hubby told me to go ahead & order it :-)
