Spin Cycle: Oh, the happiness every other monday

Sprite's Keeper (the first blog I ever read-she was the gateway drug) hosts the Spin Cycle every Friday.  Go see her for more great products, services and fun.

Spin Cycle: "...And I can't live without it!"

The thing I can't live without?  Our wonderful, wonderful cleaning service.   The time and frustration that $98 dollars every two weeks saves us is worth every single penny.  It takes our wonderful team 2-3 hours to do all of the heavy cleaning that would take us an entire weekend.

I am a very detail oriented person.  I could spend an entire afternoon cleaning our master bathroom.  In fact, I have.  Including scrubbing the grout on ALL the tile with a toothbrush just to have the dog come in with his muddy feet the next morning.  Yep, there were tears.  Don't get me stared on the how long it takes me to vacuum the couches.  Yes, the couches need vacuumed, golden retriever hair is pervasive in our house.  Especially on anything Tonka can rub himself on.

The cleaning service has improved my marriage.  We both work, we both clean.  Except well I can be bossy and want things done a certain way.  There were fights over sinks and toilets and kitchens.  No way was I doing all of it by myself though, I am stubborn like that.

Oh, the joy to leave the house for work every other Monday and come home to a clean house.  It's like magic...that we pay for...but still magic.

Dear So & So...Appropriate Office Attire

Dear So and So...

Let's do this thing. Go see Kat for more fun.

Dear Co-Tenents,
I fail to see how track suits, shiny adidas "kicks," and terry cloth onesies (in the summer, I kid you not) is appropriate office attire.  I know this is Colorado, but seriously?

Oh, and put some shoes on to go to the bathroom.  I am no germaphobe, but gross.just gross.

Dress for the job you want people,
Co-Tenent in the slacks, heels and sweater set

Dear Doctor's Nurse Line,
Thanks for being LESS helpful than the googles.  Yes, Zyrtec IS a non-drowsy option for the battle of the hives.  Thanks for tell me 8 times that you *think* it might be non-drowsy.

I could do your job in my sleep,
Patient who wasted her time calling you

Dear Man Cub,
You are pure adorable boyness.  When you pick up an item and put it to your ear like a phone and say "Hello Mama" you make my day.

Hello Bubba,

Dear Readers,
That recipe I made in the crockpot on Tuesday was freakin' delish.  Make it, you won't be sorry.

You are Welcome,

Dear Sunday,
Please come quicker, as my only day off during the "the season that shall not be mentioned" you are the light at the end of a VERY long week. 

Move it along,
Tired Employee

Random Thought Tuesday...Living on the Edge

Ah, the great weekly brain dump. I should sleep well tonight.


Head on over to Keely's House of Zombies for more organized random.

  • Now that I used the button for the first time I am actually looking at it in detail, is that a windmill?  Random.
  • Why is that those people who grate on you can't sneeze without you rolling your eyes.  "Idiot! Can't you just suck up that sneeze?  Jeez."
  • I have hives people.  No idea why I randomly breakout in hives.  This time I have them on my ear lobes.  I have taken one Benadryl and am about to fall asleep at my desk.
  • Thanks to Kat for being my first commenter and follower.  You are sweet.
  • The BP&N household is living on the edge today.  The crockpot is on at home cooking this recipe without somebody to babysit it or the "crockpot cam" that Nick likes to setup to make sure the house doesn't burn down.  As the son of a insurance salesman this is a BIG deal.  Ride fast, take chances?  Um. No.
  • Man Cub has switched from saying/signing "thank you" to saying "welcome," I will take all the polite I can get.
That is all.
