Date Night Friday

Actually, I should have titled this post "Date DAY Friday". Because I have a date.....with my vacuum cleaner!! Blah! You can only put off so much for so long, ya know? Normally I am pretty good about being right on top of housework, but this week was Spring Break (yes, we're weird like that!) and The Bella was up my asscrack like a bad thong home with me all week. AND it's spring in Georgia, which means one thing.........tons & tons, and gobs & gobs of lime green pollen from the depths of Hell. Inside, outside - it's everywhere. And I'm allergic to it. Too bad there's no good, constructive use for snot because every spring I make GALLONS of it!! TMI? Sorry 'bout that. Anywho....so yeah, right....housework. Alex is coming up tomorrow so it is a good excuse to finally get some stuff done. I realize it won't look like I killed myself today after she's home for five minutes, but WE will know it was clean, right?? Right!

I'd like to think I look like this....
...when in reality it's more like this!
Can I get an AMEN????
I hope to get everything done FAST, because I want to make some cards!! I am a Spirit Jumper and I have three cards to make for that. And oh yeah, make some stuff for my store which will open....eventually, lol!! Make it a FABULOUS day everyone!!!

Now if a guy said something like, "...I have a date.....with my vacuum cleaner!!" they would never hear the end of it...

We are having our annual Crawfish Boil next week - over 150 people.

I'm not cleaning my house until next Thursday. I refuse. And nobody can make me. I too have snot and not afraid to use it!

Donnetta said...

BTW - guess who arrived home from her 8 hour Six Flags extravaganzto find BEAUTIFUL Easter card in the mail from a certain card making goddess. HMMMM....ME!!

Thank you SO much!! It made my day!

Brandy said...

I think cleaning on Fridays is a sin. Or maybe that's just at my house...

Christina said...

I love that! I got a "Get Outta Cleaning Free" card from the dr this week! YAY ME!

What a bummer of a date night! But I'm sure you totally look like that top picture.

Mama Wheaton said...

Can't wait for your store to open! I have a date with my 12 yo son, we get to go to a poetry reading for my poetry class - yeah, Can I just say the last one was boring, like sitting in a graveyard with nothing to say.

I completely feel your pain. My dearest friend from way back in grade school is coming to stay with me next week. I have SOOOO much cleaning to do before she gets here. This place is a mess and I blame it all on blogging! So just know you have company while you clean! And speaking of the cards you make. I just came in from my mailbox. And I must say I was BLOWN AWAY by the beautful handmade card I found there. I have this huge stupid mushy grin on my face. I can't tell you how much your thoughtfulness meant to me. It is so delicate and springy and sparkly and GORGEOUS!!!! I don't even know how to tell you thank you enough. My heart is full to burstin! I'm gonna take some pictures and hope they turn out good and put it on my blog. Everyone needs to see how beautiful your thoughtful gift was. Thank you! ♥

Good luck with the house cleaning. It's a real drag to do when your not in the mood!

I received a wonderful Easter card from you! It made my day! I love the sparkle! Thank you sooooo much! Bless you!

"Up my asscrack like a bad thong."

Has to be one of the best lines I've heard in a very long time! I will certainly be using this phrase whenever I get the chance, which should be often!

Mary said...

I feel your pain...my allergies always kick into high gear this time of year!!! Good luck on your cleaning...I'll be at the sink, dealing with the dishes!

Yaya said...

How did you get matched for spirit jumper? I got the email but never heard back again for who to send to? Should I email them again?

And...you just reminded me I really should be vaccuuming...not blogging...

Honey Mommy said...

Wow... that first photo is a doozie. I should photoshop my face on that one!

LadyStyx said...

OMG. That explains the emails today !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lizzie said...

Vickie said...

Amen!!

I only vacuum if I have to and that is when both dogs have shed all over the carpet making it a black carpet instead of a beige carpet:)

I spent last night cleaning...not the best time to do it since I should be sleeping, but the mess in my house got a little crazy since I was away for two weeks and this week was attending an online conference.

Good luck with the allergies. I just took some Zyrtec this morning so I can function like a normal person.

April said...

Good luck on getting all your cleaning done...I need to get hopping on that myself! I know exactly what you mean about all the pollen!

I'm a Spirit Jumper, too, and I'm so looking forward to it! Abby is one, as well!

Hope you have a Happy Easter!

Punkn said...

Don't tell anyone, but hubby does the vacuuming around this house. He cleans the bathrooms too. Yea, I know, I'm spoiled.

Hope you have a wonderful Easter!
