Clean House? In My Dreams.....


Hey Yall! Sorry I didn't post yesterday. I was busy trying to straighten some things up around here. I was gone for two weeks and once we brought all our junk back into the house, well, it was a mess. THEN the mail was delivered. Lots and lots of mail to go through and organize and file. Then the bills to pay. Then the HOA of the condo we have in Raleigh somehow didn't credit two months of fees, so I had to get copies of those cancelled checks and try and straighten that out. And they did. So I was up to my neck in paper work. Now I'm only up to my waist.

Today, I took Mr. Frannycakes truck to have the tires rotated. I sat in the waiting room for two hours. The cable tv was out, but the lady that pretty much runs the place had brought a season of "Friends" and had it playing on the big screen TV. She also had made coffee. It has been a while since I have watched "Friends" and I had forgotten just how funny it could be. I found myself laughing out loud. Thankfully, I was the only person in the waiting area. It was kind of nice to know that I could nothing but watch tv and enjoy it.

Our temperature up here is supposed to get colder this weekend. We still have snow. A lot of it. I need to start thinking about what I am going to plant. For some reason, plants and flowers up here know that they have just a small window of opportunity to grow and bloom and they do it faster than I ever seen it in the South. (Notice I capitalized South......) We have some painting to do to touch up a few places and a whole lot of sand to get out of the garage. Once the snow completely melts, it looks like we have had a major wind storm in the yard. Limbs, sticks, leaves, and pine cones are everywhere. It will be a major raking job. Anybody want to come and visit???????? I will buy you a rake and even put your name on it!

Yall be good and I will talk to you tomorrow!

housework is futile. Once it's clean it gets messed up again... A clean house lasts about 10 seconds here...
