Stacks UPON Stacks AND Sunscreen

There are stacks everywhere! I can hardly believe that just 6 days ago the house was immaculate. No really, it was, well almost. I had worked through all the stacks, cleaned every room and even scrubbed the kitchen floor.

On Memorial Day I was relieved that Kari had brought sunscreen and was more than willing to share! When we got home I looked in the cupboard where I thought the sunscreen was, thinking I would stick it in the van so it would be harder to forgot on our next sun filled outing. The sunscreen wasn't there. I have a saying in the house, "if you can't find something, start cleaning." I never got to clean in search of the sunscreen.

Just moments ago I sent Jacob to get Chloe's milk out of the refrigerator. The old newspapers are stacked a mile high on top of the refrigerator. I could have recycled them on several occasions, but keep thinking, when I get the garden planted I will need those papers to keep the weeds down. AND I will need them when we put rock around the ac unit to keep the weeds out there too.

So moments ago, after Cob got Chloe's cup - CRASH!! down came the half of the papers stacked on top of my wooden bowl. Low and behold there came the sunscreen. Whew! I guess I won't need THAT many papers to keep the weeds down :-)
