Rude awaking...

Hi there all you blog readers out in cyber land..... sorry I have been MIA....

It has been a really busy couple of days! On Saturday I went to lunch with one of my friends, then we went to get pedicures - and then we went to a movie! It was pretty late when I got home. Then on Sunday I went to my next door neighbors house for dinner and to watch the NASCAR race!!!

In between all of that - I have been spring cleaning!!! I have been cleaning my baseboards, my ceiling fans and I even went out and purchased a carpet cleaner so I can clean my rugs!!! Not to mention I have gotten four big huge boxes together of "stuff" to sell at a garage sale I plan to have SOON!!!!

But the funny thing is I kind of had a rude awaking today... Last night hubby was able to finally call home and touch base. So I told him I had been cleaning and that I had taken a ton of stuff up into the attic and that I had gone out and purchased the carpet cleaner! His comment was, "Well that's good. Once you get everything all cleaned up you will feel better... it is good to know you are moving and shaking and getting stuff done."

Now I thought this was a really strange comment - but I didn't dwell on it.... then today I was talking to my friend Chris on the phone... and she had said that her hubby had asked how I was doing with my hubby being gone.... and Chris said she had told her hubby that she was sure I was probably cleaning! That I cleaned when I was stressed!!! Of course she said his reply was why couldn't he had gotten a wife that cleans when stressed!!!! Bahahahaha!!! But I have to tell you when I hung up with her - I was shocked!!! I was like - DO I REALLY clean when I am stressed?!?!?!? Surely not......

So I called my BFF in FL - and I was like "Tracy - Do I clean when I am stressed?" To which she replied - I would think that you would... I haven't ever seen that side of you - but I would totally assume that since you are such a neat freak!!! I was like what??? A neat freak???? ME?!?!?!?!

To which she replied - "Uh... yeah... most people don't actually clean their baseboards - they talk about they need to - but normally they don't do it... and if they do actually do it - they only do it once every year or so!!!!!"

I was flabbergasted!!! I wouldn't have thought I was a neat freak, nor would I have assumed or even realized that when I am stressed I clean!!!! Who knew!!!

Anyway - I guess that is it for me today - It is a gorgeous 85 degrees here to day and I am off to wash my car!!! (Crap - Is that considered cleaning?!?!?!)

Until Next Time!

Oh my, you gave me a good laugh... sorry not intending to laugh at you. It's just fun to read about your thoughts. So, don't think that stress cleaning is a bad thing. It's good to keep yourself occupied and that is probably all it is. Well, maybe that and that it is usually much more difficult to get anything finished when your spouse is there and if like mine constantly distracting me from what I am trying to get done and help him with whatever project he has going at the time. I gave up a long time ago trying to accomplish much when the guys are around and just play catch up once they are working or otherwise occupied. It's good to hear you have a handle on things - however you look at it.

Have a wonderful evening.

All I can say is that you are welcome to visit me when you get stressed - LOL!
We all do things that relax us (or we should) when things get stressful - if we didn't we'd all be visiting in the local funny farm. :) Keep doing what it takes to keep your sanity intact.
Blessings to both you and your husband,

I clean when I am cross, and then I dust, which is something I don't do often as I hate it! It's like making a statement saying "You made me so cross, and now look, I've dusted!!" LOL

thanks for the smiles you story gave me!
