When Max is wiggly and has a hard time paying attention during homeschool, I have listened to the advice given to me from various sources. Just take a quick break and make him do something physically hard. At one point I had an actual list of ideas on the fridge but by now the ideas are well-memorized. Today’s idea was this:
Wait. Wait. Wait. What I really wanted to see if you noticed is how I moved around the furniture in my kitchen? See that beautiful pressboard cabinet up there? It’s now on the other side of the kitchen table awaiting its final move to the front porch to be picked up in the morning.
For someone else to own!
‘Cause I got this now!
And I love it, love it, love it. It came the other day on this:
And I am giddy because I’ve never owned any furniture from any of those fine stores, but I’ve studied their catalogs for 10 years. But never mind the store where it came from, the exciting part is that THEY ASSEMBLED IT!
I searched high and low for what I wanted and, true to form, I overthought, over analyzed, over searched, over Craiglisted, and overwhelmed my poor husband with too many details about kitchen hutches, microwaves, cabinets, and my inward journey to embrace the homeschool kitchen right before he left on a 12 day missions trip.
But all was not lost because he gave me the green light to get whatever I wanted (or, just please shut up about it!) before he left.
All part of my plan. I’m totally kidding.
Actually, I was super happy to see this bookshelf at Pottery Barn Kids (thinking outside the kitchen microwave hutch box) on clearance. Plus free in-home delivery and set-up. Surprisingly it was within our budget and did I tell you I love it? Because I do.
Especially that beautiful plastic child safety lock. That’s what really makes it look good.
And the gumballs.
