Random google cleaning thoughts

Okay.. bordom has already set in. I have yet to get myself into a groove of things I would like to do.. ie read.. Dr. Phil... Oprah....

Something very cool.. have you ever googled yourself?... it is kind of interesting... what is really cool is if you google your blog.. kind of makes you feel like you are an important part of this internet universe and if people really needed to find you, they could.

Of course I am sure that we all have dreams that this could one day turn into some sort of non-fiction Bridgett Jones' Diary and we could make millions from just writing random thoughts. I am pretty positive that some of my thoughts are worth at least 2 cents!!

Bed rest had me up every hour on the hour last night... which normally is not that big of a deal because I can go right back to sleep, but last night I was not so fortunate. I was almost relieved when the clock said 5:15 and I could hear Max stirring. He got up and we snuggled on the couch for a while before Mike got up. This is also the time when I noticed that the fridge is broke yet again. Did you know Sears will accept service requests at 5:30 am?? The only reason I am not through the roof again is because we are still under warranty... I think thi is the 1st time I have ever opted for the extended service warranty ever and it has paid off.

I will be venturing out into the big world today... work had scheduled my baby shower for today. I am aweful though, because I am hoping it is very quick ... Dr. Phil and his crisis husband, wife, and pregnant mistress are supposed to be on.... Oh and OPRAH!!!!! Today they go to this woman's house who- on the outside- is perfect.. perfectly dressed, perfect hair, perfect jewelry.. and they go to her house and it is horrible!!!! Pet feces everywhere... the bathroom covered in mildew.. kitchen hasn't been cleaned in 2 years!!! This is my greatest fear....

I come from a long line of perfectionist cleaners, both maternal and paternal sides... My father never... EVER... allowed dishes in the sink for more than the time it took for the event.. ie dinner was clean before we sat down to watch TV.. breakfast was put away before we left in the morning.... ANd not just put in the dishwasher... cleaned and put in the dishwasher... Tiff & Kyle used to make so much fun of me because I come from a family where dishes are washed with soapy water in the sink and disinfected in the dishwasher... I would spend forever in the kitchen cleaning the dishes and Kyle & tiff would say just put them on the shelf! My mother... there was no such thing as dust or a dirty bathroom... My grandparents... again.. no magazines stacked anywhere.. no nothing stacked anywhere, not even in closets... SO any remote mess makes me feel like a slob. I genuinely believe that when people come over to my house they notice my dirty floor boards and assume I live like a slob.. even though I have never noticed a floor board in anyone else's home. The idea of someone "dropping by" my house makes me want to hurl!!

I have to stop talking about cleaning because now I am having this overwhleming desire to clean my floor boards rather than lay back down which is what I am supposed to do....

I have known you for 15 years and I have never once looked at the floor boards of any of the houses that your parents owned or of any of the apartments or houses that you have had. Also I will continue to just drop buy when ever I can because I know that I can one day break you of this phobia. I have not given up on the dishes thing yet either by the way. Have fun at the shower. Then straight back to bed.LoveT

Beck! Next time you feel bad about your house - come to mine! I'm with Tif - I've never looked at the baseboards (not only of your house, but of anyone's). RELAX!!!! Watch Oprah and Dr. Phil. Snuggle Max a little more than usual. It will all be over soon. One day...one day....I am certain that you will join the ranks of the rest of the "normal" people and not worry about it so much. And I have no doubt in my mind that your house will never look like your inlaws - which is your real fear isn't it? Love you!
