In the Meantime:
A Perfect Moment in My Imperfect Kitchen

I used Paint to "paint" to see how our kitchen might look with other colors
Here's what it looks like now. 

I re-read an old blog post of mine called  "In a Perfect World."    I don't live in a perfect world.  I live in a messy not quite pulled together world.  Last night my younger son was sharing some ad slogans he came up with for classmate's inventions while he was unloading the dishwasher.  He and my husband and I were laughing because some of them were so funny and spot on.  The boy is a very good writer.  Anyway, at that moment it struck me  what a perfect moment we were having in our imperfect kitchen.   I could gut the kitchen and put in the latest and best of everything and it wouldn't make that moment any sweeter. 

In the meantime....I use the phrase "in the meantime" a lot when coming up with solutions for our lives.  What it means is "until the perfect world comes along this is what we will do that will improve our present situation."   Well that's a mouthful.  But what it really means is a "good enough" solution.  Because anyone who reads this blog knows that "perfectionism is the enemy of production."

"In the meantime" is my friend.  That phrase can give birth to some inventive solutions.  

In the meantime, I am off to return items after Christmas.
