Buzy Little Bee. Buzz, buzz . . .

Yipee! Our premature, faux springtime weather is back ! The past few days of snow and cold temps has made it hard for me to get very motivated to do anything. Today, I got up and got busy. I put Jake and Khris to work helping me clean out the garage. It was a disaster. Over the winter, the garage becomes the dump all room. Then, this past weekend, Roy and Nick have had a fire in the fire place. They used my garage to store the fire wood and when that ran out, they started sawing all the spare boards from Halloween projects. They managed to track sawdust and loose bark all over the house. As if that wasn't messy enough, on Monday, Roy put Nick to work taking inventory and cleaning out his work van. That means that everything got dragged into the garage and when he re-organized it, all the trash got left behind !

After I finished the garage, I needed a nap. When I woke up, I cooked dinner and tackled the basement. Since then, I have been steadily chipping away at the mountain of laundry that has piled up, and doing dishes and vacuuming in between loads. Amazing what a little nap will do for ya.

My pups are pouting because it has been a perfect day to take a walk in the park, and Mom has just been too busy. Poor babies. I feel so bad for them. (and just a little agitated too because, there are three other people in this house who are perfectly cape able of walking a dog - except they are just too lazy !) So I have come up with a plan. I am going to finish all this laundry tonight. And tomorrow, I plan on sleeping late, and after I get a long hot shower, I am going to do nothing but PLAY all. day. long. Jake goes back to school and I'll have the whole house to my self. I'm going to walk my dogs, and enjoy the fresh air, sunshine, and warm weather. If I feel like cooking dinner, I will; If not, screw them, they can eat left overs. Tomorrow is MY day. I think I've earned it. I'm excited just thinking about it.

Okay, I just heard the dryer buzz, so I need to get going. I hope that tomorrow is a wonderful day for you all too !!!!!

Love ya,
Susan
