Look quick, for this will be gone tomorrow.

Yesterday at work, my friend Claudia made me feel bad. She's a super sweet Mexican woman with a good sense of humor, and she's working really hard because she's trying to get her husband and baby daughter (legally) to the US. 

I made a joke about never cleaning, and she looked at me like she didn't understand. Then she said, "What do you cook for your kids when you go home?" 

I thought. 
...and thought.
...and thought.

"Can of green beans?" 

"WOMAN! How long you been married??" 

"Six years," I admitted, head hung low. 

"And you don't know how to cook yet?!" *Shakes head* "You need to know how to make good food!" 

i am ashamed.

Remember, six months ago, when I moved into this apartment?
I promised you pictures of the place and never delivered. 

Today I had an unexpected day off (thought I was working, but it was actually tomorrow), so I dove into the disastrous kitchen and cleaned like mad. It hasn't been cleaned like this since before I started working, so it needed it BAD. (This is the number one reason I don't cook - messy kitchen.) Took me hours to clean our teeny, tiny kitchen. While I was at it, I decided to finally take some pictures for you guys! See? Kept my promise. ;) 


The kitchen is so small, I had to turn in a circle to take these pictures...

Yes, we do laundry in the kitchen.

I even made them dinner after that!!

Ok, so it was Ramen noodles. What of it?

Asher said, "Mom, you just made the whole kitchen SHINE! It was like, 'Ding! Ding! Ding!'" 


  1. Ding! Ding! Ding! I LOVE IT!! I'm going to use that in so many situations! :)

  2. Hey Im new! My kitchen is that small, but I do laundry in my garage. I wish I could do laundry in my kitchen, its getting to be that time of the year where the garage is coooold!

    My kids love Ramen noodles! You are my kind of people!

  3. Not only did I love reading a little bit of your blog, Russell, but I found other blogs I now love through yours. This is why I love blogging. :) It's nice to meet you, and THANK YOU for introducing yourself. I love to know who's reading!

    Jon, your life isn't quite as complete without Asher in it.

  4. haha it's so hard to clean the kitchen. the worst. and then when it gets really bad... that much harder! i feel for you! but it looks great!
