Have you ever wondered that as a mom or as a woman, why it is that a clean house makes you feel so good? What is it about a clean house that can turn me from ticked off to happy in a flash. Is it because the negative energy is spent, as a result of the elbow grease? I have always been that way. If my home is a wreck, I feel a wreck. I can't believe I used to be that person... that person that couldn't leave dirty dishes in the sink overnight, that person that couldn't get into an unmade bed, that person who couldn't stand to see my floor dirty, where did that person go? Justin would say, he doesn't know where she went but thank God she is gone. Poor guy, I used to literally walk behind him with one of those miniature brooms and dust pan.
I know where that clean freak went, she was swallowed up by motherhood.....
I realize there are more important things in life besides a spotless house. That is one piece of advice that my mom gave me after my first child. She regrets putting so much emphasis on having a clean house. If she had it to do all over again, she wouldn't worry so much about whether it was clean or not.
I will let you in on a little secret about myself. It is kinda embarrassing, I have an obsession with PineSol. The original scent only! Dang I love that stuff! It is a GREAT mask too... even if you haven't scrubbed the house... wipe down your counters with it and people will think you have spent hours and hours cleaning. I just wish they would come out with a room spray. Seriously, I LOVE the stuff! (I bet you didn't know that about me).
Oh, here is another Misti-ism.... I am absolutely, positively in love with the whole Fall back time change. I look forward to it from the moment we Spring forward. I love, love, love, love, love it! I love that feeling on Monday morning when your body wakes up at it's usual time.... then you look at the clock and realize you still have another hour. OH MY! That is the GREATEST feeling! (yes, I am so easily amused!) Now as far as the Spring forward goes.... I loathe it.... every Spring I cuss the whole idea of time change and whoever came up with it. I don't see the need and feel it is the most ridiculous thing in the world, and I immediately think about Fall back and begin counting the days till then.... (bet you didn't know that either). Don't forget to FALL back your clocks! Woo hoo!
On to more exciting stuff.... (yeah, right!)
We finally got our cat spayed today! This is Brayen's cat. We have had it for 3 years and had said we were going to get her fixed after her second litter two years ago. Of course we thought we were getting a boy cat and named it Jet. We soon found out we had a little girl so her name became Jetta. Now 8-10 litters later (I've lost count), there will be no more. I can't tell you what a relief it is! Poor thing is in a lot of pain though. She is horribly engorged because her latest litter has been given away, and to top it off she is sewn up. I can imagine her pain. The dang cat had a litter 6 weeks ago and was already in heat. I never dreamed that cats were such busy bodies. I swear, she would hook up with any Tom, Dick, or Harry. There were some pretty mangy looking males prowling out here. Notice I said, there were... enough said. After dishing out 130.00 to have her fixed, I see why there are so many wild cats out there!
I will close for tonight.... the dryer has stopped and I am certain you are bored to death with my ramblings.... so until next time... Good Night!
