We cleaned out the kitchen. It was a lot of money that was gone, but then we realized it was a lot of money just sitting there that we never got around to eating.
So we made a box for the food bank:
And we made a pile to keep for after the challenge (not shown is all my GF baking flours and necessities:
And then, between the cupboards & fridge & baking cupboard we have 3 of these:
So our cupboards looked like this:
But now they look like this!
So, after a lot of indulgence tonight (and today and yesterday) we'll be waking up to a whole new kitchen!
At first when we were cleaning things out I thought it would be too bare and that we'd have nothing in the way of food for the adoption home inspection and I was concerned - but now I'm so much more pleased with what's in there!
Also, at my appointment with the General Internal Medicine Specialist that prompted this challenge, the doctor told me to start a new iron supplement. He wrote it down, but I wish he would have wrote it as a prescription - it cost me $62.00 for 100 pills! I was not impressed. The pharmacist said the difference is the amount of elemental iron you get - the other one I was on (for the last 5 years) gave me 30mg, this new one gives me 150 mg. So hopefully things start to turn around soon for my body.
Although, to be honest, part of me (that doesn't want to say this out loud) wonders if whatever it is could help me cure the infertility and miscarriage issues. I mean, if my body isn't getting nutrients and nourishment properly then at least there's a chance, right?
Also - happy new year everyone!
