Our Fridge

Here is our fridge, prompted by the Question of the Moment over at Toast's place. I'm not sure if this is the window to the soul of our home, but I think you certainly get a sense of what's going on by looking at our fridge.

First off, you'll notice we have great taste. This is evidenced by the Harry Potter and Florida State magnets, the "Broadway in Jacksonville" flyer, and the Pizza Hut coupon. (Quick aside - I'm listening to some French rap song on XM U-Pop. French is usually a beautiful language for music, but I think it's met its match with rap. Really a jarring sound.)

Second, you see that we have kids. If you open the large version of the pic, you might be able to make out the two blank chore charts in the upper left hand corner, one each for Tori and Libby. What you can't see is that these are several weeks old. The kids generally do their chores, but we suck at keeping track of them. Then there 's the summer camp sheet (that's the orangish one), and the Hillary Duff magnet.

A lot of the rest is just stuff we stick up there that we need to keep track of but can't find a better place for. On the magnetic board, you can see our reminder for our dental cleanings. All 4 of us go together every 6 months. That's coming up tomorrow. There's also our vouchers for our NCL cruise coming up in December. At least we got something from the bloodsucking credit card we carried nearly full for years.

So that's us. And in case you're wondering, we're going to be getting rid of that god-awful wallpaper next month. As a bonus, I've included the side of our fridge below. It's the home for the unused magnets.

For some reason they won't just pitch in just for the fun of it. It's really more of a chore for us trying to keep up with them doing their chores.
