It’s Springtime. The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming and yep, it’s raining. This should be the time of year where you start stowing away your winter clothes and transitioning your drawers to bathing suits and shorts but this year it’s been oddly cold. And, given the mild winter we had, is pretty dang annoying.
BUT, you know what else is more dang annoying?
The fact that both my kitchen & dining room tables have been showcasing their multitasking ability as coat closets for WAY too long.
Here’s the kitchen.
Please note the one coat dangling on the floor…… And please also note, the repair kit for the lawn mower that’s been sitting on the table for upwards of 2 weeks now.
Here’s the dining room.
Yes, that’s 2 more of hubby’s coats. Resting peacefully until the next time they might be needed.
Much like the mind-boggling phenomenon of passing the dishwasher to put dirty dishes into the sink OR the mystifying 1/2 job of putting items on top of the counter, above the drawer where they belong OR the difficult task of placing empty soda cans into the trash, hubby must walk at least 15 feet past our coat closet to put his coats on these chairs. And then, they seem to live there for the season. Even when I finally cave and put them away, while cleaning for the cleaning lady, they eventually find their way back to the chairs. It’s a never-ending, no-win, battle for me.
I can’t wait until it’s warm enough to put the coats away for good…. at least I’ll have coat-free tables for about 4-5 months!!!
