Sadly, This Is My Kitchen

This week has been a headache.  Literally.  Since my glorious spill in the kitchen, my head has ached non stop.  I've slowed down and spend a lot of time resting, but as all Moms know, when you slow down and rest, the rest of life speeds up and gets messy.

Sadly, this is my kitchen this week. 

Even though this is the sight of my fall, and the fridge apparently has had it out for me and relished its chance to crack my head open, and it is a cluttered mess of dishes, crumbled napkins, and empty yogurt cups, I still like my kitchen.  I love the yellow walls and the blue counters.  I love the pictures covering the fridge and the three dog crates taking up space against the wall.  I love the wooden table my Grandpa salvaged and gave to me and I love the step stool that all kids fight over.

I guess, even though it is often the messiest room of our house, it is the place where we are often found, talking.  Just the other night, I sat on the step stool and talked with my son as he made brownies.  My daughter did her homework next to me while I made dinner. 

The kitchen is our hub, and the good times are worth the mess. 

And, honestly, my head aches just enough that I don't care if the brownie baking mess is still in the sink!

This post inspired by prompt #3 at Mama's Losin' It! and I'm linking up with Papa is a Preacher TidBit Thursday.


  1. Your kitchen is cute! It looks like the hub of a busy, happy home.

    Sorry about your fall! Sounds awful and makes me not want to mop, either, which I actually don't mind :-) I hope your head feels better soon.

  2. Cute kitchen, and the mess just shows how much love and activity happen in there. Hope your head heals quickly!

  3. When we moved into our house, we had a totally gross kitchen. We didn't have money to remodel it, so to spruce it up we painted the cabinets white, the walls yellow and put new blue countertop on it! Made a huge difference!! Since our dishwasher went kaput a couple years ago, we were able to remodel it (thanks to insurance). But . . . we still have yellow walls!!

    Hope your headache goes away soon!

  4. Signs of a busy engaged family! Hope you feel better soon. Visiting from Mama Kat's.

  5. Kitchens always seem to be the gathering place! I'm glad you can still embrace the site of your disaster - the fall. I hope your head feels better soon. Make everyone else take care of you for awhile! Also, do you have two cats or little dogs? We have one of each.

  6. Its a kitchen full of love!

  7. And that's all that matters. (:

    What is it about kitchens? We're having to move our table from the dining room into the kitchen because we just stand around eating in the kitchen instead of sitting in the dining room..

    Thanks for linking up!

  8. You have a cute kitchen! Ours is small but cozy—definitely the hub of the house.

    I hope you're feeling better soon.
