Skeletons in my closet

I've been working really hard on my spring cleaning. What's that you say? It's not spring? Well, spring is crazy busy around here, and honestly any time I actually get the urge to clean, I really have to go for it. Plus, I really wish it were spring! I would love for a whole week above 5F.

Anyway, back to my spring cleaning. My project of the week is our pantry closet. Our house really has no storage at all, including cupboards and closets. But we do have a pantry "room." Well, since we moved in while it was raining with no help from anyone (it was a busy weekend for everyone.) We ended up throwing a lot of miscellaneous stuff and boxes in that room, and never really got it cleaned out.
It has our extra freezer for all of my bulk cooking. It houses the less used/big cooking items (Nesco roaster, Griddle pan, Canning Jars, Baking Pans, etc..) and also our bulk buy items (toilet paper, Kleenex that we stock up on at before school sales, etc..) The shelving has much to be desired, but if it isn't cleaned out where will I add more shelves? So anyway, I have worked on that for the last 2 days. But I don't know where to put a few things.
Yep, you thought that title wasn't literal. Well it is. We have 2 adult (model) skeletons that we take out for Halloween and when people come over just to mess with them. Their names are Livy & Lars. They are about 5 1/2 feet tall. My husband set them in our pantry last year after Halloween. Which isn't working for me. But where do you put them? They can't take extreme heat or cold so it has to be somewhere inside. There is a hook on their heads, but that doesn't really help me. We don't have a heated/insulated garage so that's out. We don't have a basement really, so that's out. No attic. I'm afraid their ribs could break if I try shoving them under the bed. Not to mention what if God forbid something happens and people are cleaning out our house and stumble upon two skeletons. Boy, I'd love to see that. So if anyone has any thoughts I'd love to hear them.
We made pizzas last night. Are my kids the only ones who have to make everything a face?
Alright. DI again after school. Busy busy!

Saw your skeletons in the closet picture on Flickr and had to go read your blog about it. Great story - and that picture certainly gets your attention. After all, how many people do you know who keep a pair of skeletons around. Then I went to read your profile and saw your age ... you are one amusing lady. Thanks you for giving me a spontaneous chuckle at 5 AM. Your blog title seems to identify you exactly -- you do appear to "Enjoy Life's Journeys".

P.S. Where did the skeletons finally end up?

I'm so glad you came for a visit!
I'm glad you were/are amused. Most of all I'm glad you left a comment. I looked at your flickr pics and your crochet is awesome! I love the toy rings and the tunisian (I think) bag with the leaves!
To answer your question of where did my poor skellies end up, well, they are still where they are in the picture. My husband and I are at odd on this. He wants me to put them under the bed, but I'm afraid that will bust a rib. I want him to put some hooks in our crawl space and hang them there. I figure if he hasn't done something by this coming saturday, I'll go buy some hooks and get it done myself. =)
Thanks so much for visiting!

I'll be back to visit again. You're writing is a delight to read. I just added you on Twitter & tried to send you a direct message there, but guess you have to add me back for me to write. I'll also add you on Flickr if you want.

Thanks so much for the compliments on my crochet. I love making little 'critters', etc.

Hope you find a new home for your skeletons soon. I used to work for a Medical Examiner and he had one in his office!

I think it's kind of funny...I came to visit your blog from your flickr picture as well! Loved that Pyrex set of yours.

OH my goodness I came across this looking for ideas for homemade gifts for boys. From a google search that led me here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=67446.0 then to your blog!!! I love the gift ideas you gave. My son has requested a full size skeleton for christmas he is 6 years old and wants to keep it in his bedroom. Those would look cool dressed up in the kids room, what did you finally do?
