The Leaning Tower of Soup

The other day, I came home from work to find a big box on the porch. It was heavy when I carried it into the apartment. I wondered what it was. Boots thought "Another big box for me to climb in!" When I opened it, it contained 15 cans of Progresso soup of all types.
My first thought was "Where the hell am I going to put it!" I will be reviewing them as I eat them. The free soup, gift pack, information, and giveaway were provided by Progresso through MyBlogSpark. So, the organizing task of the weekend is to organize my pantry. It will be quite a project. I am not sure entirely what I have.
As you can see, I may have my work cut out for me. The cabinets in my apartment are where I keep my dishes, glasses and other miscellaneous things. The bottom part will especially difficult. I don't think I have gone through it since I moved in here almost two years ago. Dad went back to the emergency room today. His blood pressure was 228/118. I am really worried about him. His pressure has gone down since then but it was all because he lost his debit card and did not have access to cash and they would not take a credit card. His doctor would not see him because he did not have cash then and he had gone home to get his checkbook only to find that they did not take checks either. He was all agitated (as I would be), went home, took his blood pressure and it was so high that he drove himself to the ER. Needless to say, I was worried sick about him. Luckily, it was right before my therapy appointment and I could talk about it. I also talked about the whole weight loss and scale number thing. She agreed, for my own sanity, that I should only weigh in once a month. She thought I should look into a weight loss "therapy" group through Mass General Hospital. I am not sure if one exists. Tomorrow, I start my color knitting class and I am taking a Body Pump class at the gym. It is their inaugural weekend for Body Pump. I logged everything I ate today, even the Godiva chocolate. Though now I see an error with the oatmeal. It must have taken the amount from when I could not finish my oatmeal on other days. I will fix that. You can also add 2 Lemonades that I ate while watching Ghost Adventures.
