mood lifter

I have no idea what it is about me and cleaning.

The other night I was so pissed off that I actually washed my car. I never wash my car because I think it is a waste of time, water and energy. I did however discover that the title of my car is right. I do own a white car. Here I was thinking it was black with a lot of dust mixed in.

The down side to he car was that I could not find my car in wal mart parking lot. I was looking for a black car and now mine was white. I guess the guys at base will be happy. They wont have to wipe dirt off my windshield to read my decal.

This morning at 7:30 I fired up the carpet cleaner. Amber just looked at me and said " what are you doing?" I just looked at her like here is your sign.

Once I got the carpets cleaned I started putting all the furniture back. Then I stopped. I put some of the furniture out in the garage and rearranged some stuff. I love the way the house looks now.

My question is : Are we dirty people or I am I just to clean? I feel like I should clean the carpets every month. I wanted to puke when I saw how dirty the water was.

So, after I got the carpets cleaned I went to wal mart. I only had to pick up a few things. O.K. now I am a women on a mission. I get to the check out line and low and behold I do not have my wallet. I sent Amber out to the car, but it was not there. My wallet was right where I left it. On the bed!

According to the news we are suppose to have flash floods today. So I was looking around. Nope, not a cloud in the sky. I don't think we are going to get them.

Rusty had a blast at his cigar social last night. I am glad that he has this outlet.

Rusty said that he might get off work early today, so I am looking forward to spending some time with Rusty. Even if it us just talking while I clean up the kitchen.

Here is the link to burning man. One of these days I will get there! Even if it is my children throwing my ashes everywhere!

Well my sewing is calling me.

I wanted to stop by & thank you because you always help out with the Giving Tree :-).
The carpet cleaning thing is weird, since even when I didn't have pets & I was rarely home, I pulled blackness out of it over & over. I think the base of the cleaner must be black....

I didn't realize we were having flash floods today!! other than hot and humid, I didn't see any clouds in the sky!!

totally understand about wanting to keep carpets looking nice; I do the same with the white floor we have in the kitchen; it seems like it is always dirty; got to clean it every day or so; I told my hubby if we buy this house, that's the first thing being replaced, LOL

cleaning is sometimes good for the soul and mind; gives you a chance to work out that aggression/anger/whatever

betty

It's time for me to do the carpets again and I'm dreading it. I've got a Bissel carpet cleaner and the water is black when I'm done! GROSS! We don't have pets....we don't have small kids....I don't get it?? I'm actually really careful on the carpet 'cause I can't afford to replace it again. LOL!
Cleaning is good, if you are in the mood. I'm only in the mood about....oh....say....well....maybe I'm never in the mood! LOL!
Come clean my house, ok?
