Just pile it on, Dull Gray Day, pile it on!

So, it is a GORGEOUS slate gray day today. Really stunning. A PERFECT day for cleaning.

(Hear the sarcasm?)

Almost made me stay in bed this morning, actually.

But, it was sooo worth getting up. Really.

I've cleaned the trash can, inside and out.

I've cleaned a mess left by my sick cat, the likes of which I hope to never see again.

I've cleaned mouse poo off of treasures accidently left in the garage when we moved. (Treasures which will now be wrapped in plastic b/c I still can't stand to touch them. Ick. Worth my time? Well, yeah. Treasures.)

(Are you thinking maybe the sick cat should spend some time in the garage?)

I've cleaned up the water in front of my dying washer.

(I ate 2 peppermint patties for moral support.)

I've scrubbed carpets in 3 rooms.

I've cleaned up collie fur from places I didn't know collie fur could congregate.

(Mental note: Shave the collies.)

I'm pooped, although I hesitate to use that word after the day I've had!

Someone help me!

I don't know about you, but I cannot wait for Spring. Oh, and chocolate of any kind provides moral support for me. :)

Daisy said...

Oh my goodness! What a day you've had!! I hope you at least convinced your husband to take you out to dinner tonight as a reward for all your hard work! You can tell him Daisy said you deserve it. :D

(HA! Like my saying so would carry any weight!)

Hope you get some rest tonight and that tomorrow is sunny with blue skies (and no messes for you to clean up either!).

Chris said...

Hi Summer! Would you like our blizzard? It's supposedly on the way! AAAARGH! I'm gonna need a LOT of chocolate. ;)

Hi Daisy! ;) I didn't really have a hard day. I just whined about it a lot. :) I'm good at that! Plus, we had leftovers, so I didn't even have to clean fix dinner! I love leftover night!

Sounds like you should have just stayed in bed! I hope tomorrow is better for you and doesn't involve any four legged friends!

Chris said...

Hi Beth! ALL my days involve four-legged friends... but not usually mice, thankfully. :) My day really wasn't so bad... I certainly felt like I accomplished some things! And it was easier than dealing with 12 preschoolers, that is for sure! :)
