And so has the weekend - for once I'm glad it's Monday!
So I know y'all Pinterest. But did you know I have a titch (my own work I made up) of OCD?
Well I was going along and happily pinning when I started seeing all - well a lot - of the same photos - there was always a heavy girl and a thin girl and it was about weight loss. This has gone on now for weeks. (I play a little silly game with myself - I always try to go through all the pin before I go to bed. Do you do that?) My question was why all these pictures about the same exact thing?
I have not been able to get to the bottom of my pinterest pictures now for weeks. I finally see why. I joined a couple people's Pinterest - and like an idiot I said Follow All their groups - now there is nothing wrong with their groups and they have some great photos. What is wrong is they each have about 300K photos! Growing by leaps and bounds every day.
I spend half a day trying to delete some of the boards they have - I mean I don't need a thousand boards nor 300,000 photos to go thru everyday - it becomes work not fun.
This probably doesn't even make sense to you - but it was driving me crazy!!! It doesn't take all that much....anyway if I deleted some of yours by error - I am sorry.
My husband has been 'cleaning' it for me. I say this because he is as much to blame as me about this floor (LOL). He has been cleaning it inappropriately! LOL
So I decided when the kids were gone to really clean this floor. I went out and bought a couple kinds of floor cleaner machines. I have tried everything - there are tiny little grooves in the flooring that catch the dirt.
And if you don't clean it right from the beginning the little grooves get filthy and the floor looks horrible. And yes it looked horrible. My OCD comes out again.
I washed it with a Hoover hard floor vacuum. I used Spic and Span and Mr. Clean. I got desperate - I used vinegar. I used 90% alcohol - which would have worked if I had soaked the entire floor in it, but I didn't - which was my fatal error. So now I have a half clean floor and a half dirty floor. It looks like a zebra and my husband said a few words to me - something like, "Blah blah blah, we may need a new floor because of this".
We went to Lowe's - bought some products for Formica. We're going back to Lowe's to return them.
Monica one of my original blog friends - told me to use half bleach and half water. My hubs did not want to do that - he's afraid of bleach. Now hubs wants to try bleach. If that doesn't work I want to call a cleaning service. The saga continues.
Now what is up with this rain? It has been raining for months (okay so I feel it's been months) with no sun. I need sun - where's the sun?
We got him 3 years ago on July 4th and they told us they guessed him to be two. I have to say we love this little guy - all his many flaws - make him perfect for this dysfunctional; family. Happy Birthday Disco!
Now I have a question - does anyone have a facebook page? If so do you know how to set it to allow others to post? Mine is set up to let others post - BUT - isn't there always a but - they don't stay big like mine do - they go to a section listed see what Chatty's Friends have posted. Which is good - but I wanted this to be a paper run by all of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
See how I have to sleep with my raccoon (?)?
THE LAUGH: (For my cat lovin friends!)
I think we have been trying to do this this weekend!
