DIYing in the New Year

Today was a great start to the new year. My goal for the day was to fix my car since it has been sitting in the driveway for over a month waiting for a new starter to be installed. Today's high was around 58 degrees so for January this was the perfect day for car repair. While I was waiting for my dad to arrive I cleaned the kitchen, fixed the wobbly stove, and labeled the magnetic spice holders that we got for a housewarming gift. Then my dad showed up and we worked on the car for a few hours and after a few mishaps she started and ran like normal.

I was very excited when my car started running, but it was minor compared to my biggest accomplishment of the day which involved my refrigerator. I don't know if I've mentioned it here, but my new kitchen is tiny. It is so small that you have to move the refrigerator to fully open the backdoor. We have had to make a lot of adjustments in order to work in this kitchen, but overall we have been pretty successful. The one thing that I can't stand about our kitchen is that the refrigerator opens to the backdoor so you have to walk around it to get to the rest of the kitchen and if there is more than one person in the kitchen the door always knocks into someone. All of that changed today, when I reversed the doors so that they now open up to the kitchen. Now you can open the door from the stove and you don't have to worry about hitting anyone. Now I am ready for a great baking experiment, maybe I'll bake some muffins!
