"Just Whistle While You Work"

Today is the day for cleaning! Yes, the deep down, vaccuum-all-the-corners-wash-the-windows-wipe-out-cabinets day! Yesterday we had great bursts of thunderstorms all day and now that the outside looks so clean, it's time for me to do the inside. A quick anecdote before I get to the task list: I started out this morning by pulling all the dogs' bed covers off and throwing them in the washer. Just for fun (well, I did say this was the vaccuum-all-the-corners day) I pulled out the bed in their room - yes, the dogs occupy what would be an otherwise empty room in our house - and saw dog hair an inch thick in between the bed and the wall! Now, for those of you without pets, this is a really disgusting image (and no, I do not have pictures!) but for those of you who love your animals and know that dog hair will never be gone until your dogs are, you understand! Well, let's just say that even though I love my dogs, this was the most disgusting way I've started my day in a long time. So, those of you without dogs, count yourselves blessed that you only have to deal with a few long human hairs in the sink occasionally. I've vaccuumed every square inch of the dog room and feel cleaner myself because of it! :) The task list calleth! Have a happy spring day!

I am not a dog owner, as you know. "Grosssss." (as Napoleon would say) Now if it were gerbil hair.... (!)

I wish I had all of your energy! You're such an organized person. Maybe we need to get together so some of that nergy can rub off on me, or does it come by osmosis? Anyway, have a great spring cleaning day! Heather
