So picture this
I take Derek to Summer Rec, My sweet hubby comes home from his half day of work to take Shelby to pay tuition and get her ID for college. I pick Derek up from Summer Rec and we go to our neighbors for a quick swim before lunch. Come home have lunch, Shelby and Daddy come home and we decided to check out local garage sales looking for a dresser for Derek. A good day right?
WELL it all went south sort of,
Home from garage sale hunting not finding a dresser (oh well no biggie ) and I get the basket of laundry to fold when I notice that it is all wet underneath. Clothes are dry, humm look at the floor and follow the water to....the furnace! Okay the furnace peed all over my floor it's Friday afternoon is our guy going to be able to come? Yes! A few adjustments and sealing to the unit and all should be fine. Right?
Wrong! The furnace is fine but the carbon monoxide detector has now decided to freak out during our very late dinner. Really my family swears that they will all blow up if they do not have dinner before 7pm and it is now 7:30 and I am not cleaning up guts and brain matter so I think they exaggerate just a bit. Anyway after a bit of searching and checking things around the house it seems that it was just letting us know in it's own freaky way that the battery was dead. There now all is well Right?
I am out side watering the garden and tree because we still haven't had any rain to speak of and Shelby goes into the pantry for a snack..............Apparently on Thursday during the record breaking heat a sweltering 98 degrees with a furnace hot 20mph wind it was too hot for everyone because the ants found their way into my house!!! YES ANTS and HUNDREDS of the little tiny bastards! Now those of you who have been reading my blog know that I have a bit of OCD when it comes to the house and friends that visit always ask the same question "Where is your clutter?" I tell them I can't have clutter because it freaks me out. So you can totally tell at this point I am TOTALLY SKEEZED OUT BEYOND REASON! I was so ready to bomb the kitchen. But with my sweet hubby keeping me focused we went through the whole cupboard removing everything and checking every box. Yes alot was tossed for sure and after a through cleaning of all the packages left and piling it all on the kitchen table I proceeded to wash the dishes when he said "Should we check the other cupboard?"
Yep there too! More cleaning and by the time 11:00pm rolled around I was finally able to mop the floor.
Then of course I feel as if they are all crawling on me so to the shower to cleanse!!!
I almost took a picture of my cupboard this morning to show you but I figure I will just let you use your imagination when I tell you it is now totally "Rubbermaid".
So there is my explaination of why I have not been around the last few days and that there are so many blogs I need to catch up on and a really stunning bracelet I need to review for all of you, plus I promised Amy @ Amybeads to participate in "What's it to Hue" I have no idea when I will be catching up with all of you. I hope you all know that if I do follow you that you are very important to me and if I miss a post I will try to get to them sometime.
Hugs and Blessings
