Tackle it Tuesday(4/21/08)

I woke up this morning thinking I would go to MOPS, but after getting the kids off to school and Little Man still sleeping at 8:45 AM I knew that wasn't going to happen. Then there was my grandpa.. You see we passed along Princess's old cell phone to him last week since she now has her new dream phone. ONLY we had a little problem, about 6 months ago in one of my "oh no people are going to be here any minute" sort of cleaning I had taken the cell phone charger from off the fireplace mantel(where I normally charge the phones) and tossed it either into a bag, a box a dresser, shoot I don't know maybe even a toy box. I mean I had about 15 people on there way over my house any minute and I wanted the mantel nice and clean.. A day or two later I went to charge my phone and once again I was in a hurry but only had one line on my phone and we had to leave the house soon. I couldn't remember where I had hide I mean places so neatly away the charger. BUT NEVER FEAR... My cell phone and Princess's old cell phone were the same and we had another charger that was still boxed up and never used and I DID know where that was.. so I opened it up... time went on and I had totally forgot about the other charger..

Jump ahead 6 months and here I am passing along a phone to my grandparents.. ONLY I don't have a charger for them.. So what good is a phone with no charger.. Grandpa said to me today, have you checked the microwave cabinet.. Well No I didn't.. I would never throw I mean put away neatly something I didn't want to use in that drawer well because it is the junk drawer and things that get placed in there are never seen again. BUT since I"m at a loss as to where I put this charger I thought I would enter the forbidden world of the microwave cabinet drawer to see if Maybe I did put the charger in there. Sadly I didn't find the charger in there.. but It made for a good Tackle It Tuesday Post for my blog today..

So here you go my Tackle for Tuesday morning April 21, 2008

Well, good job - the drawer and chest look great! I hope you find the charger soon. My son always reminds us to stop and pray when we need help finding something.

GREAT tackle! Oh I so need you young chickies to come by and do some tackles for me! My cleaning gal and I tackled the basement bathroom this morning, wish I had taken pictures, also have started weeding out the kids toys. Gave all the young kids toys to her for her new grandbaby. Makes more room to get more STUFF! lol!

Great tackle!! We didn't make it to MOPS yesterday either. Miss Natalie got pretty sick and she didn't even protest when I said we weren't going. Only one more regular meeting May 13 and then May 27 we meet at Baines park for Pizza in the park.

Speaking of parks let's plan next mon or Tues to hit one!

Well done. The worst part about moving - is if you don't clean those drawers they move them exactly like that - dump themout in to a roll of paper - roll it up and stick it in a box. Reminds me....I better tackle my junk drawer soon.
