When I walk in the house I walk in through the kitchen. I usually have random things in my hand that I really don't want to take immediately past the kitchen. They need to get put away but not necessarily in the main part of the house. As an example: A friend has a corner in the garden. He picked yellow and green beans today and left some on the steps. Once I put my purse and camera away, the beans went into the refrigerator. The problem is I don't always get back to do the "put away."

Then going the other way (from the house through the kitchen), there are a lot of empty boxes that don't always get broken down on a timely basis. Especially when the recycling bin is filled to overflowing. (I don't get how a family can get by on just a couple bins.)

|WOW! I can use my stove again!|
|And a clean table too?|
In case you are wondering, I didn't find anything gross or unexpected in either place.
