‘Cause I said I would….

Since I vowed to get better at this, here’s another update and less than two weeks after my last one!

I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t update frequently because there just isn’t enough time in my days! I think the blogs that I referred to in my previous post are both stay at home Mom’s. Before you attack, I know that stay at home Mom’s work VERY, VERY hard and I am not taking away from that. The thing is, though, that I don’t have a machine set up at home (because if I did, home would just become an extension of work and I don’t want that!) and my days in the office are usually too hectic to get here. But I will try…

Weather is the big topic around here today. It’s been pouring buckets all day and we continue to get a half and inch of water per hour and they predict this will continue through 5 p.m. tonight. We’ve also had sustained winds of about 35 mph with wind gusts up to 60 mph. Unfortunately, the main road that I take home tends to flood so I just may be swimming home this evening (and I’m not a good swimmer – send out the Coast Guard!).

Another thing I’ve been meaning to tell you about. A couple weeks back, I purchased a new vacuum cleaner for the house. It’s amazing how a new appliance can change the way you look at chores. You see, my new vacuum is bagless and it’s almost fun to vacuum now and see just how much “stuff” you actually pick up when you vacuum! Of course, having two cats in the house adds to the collection but it definitely doesn’t look like there’s that much “stuff” on your floors and carpets until you see it gathered in that little plastic tub! Of course, I like the vacuum all the more since the sign on the shelf said it was $169.99 but the cash register said it was $102.00. Shhhh… don’t tell anyone!

Okay, that’s good for today! Don’t want to share too much or I’ll have nothing to post next time (it’s an exciting life I lead!).

Stay afloat….
