I visited my blog a few hours ago to add today's "I am thankful for..." and after listening to one of the songs on my playlist, I got the urge to grab my mp3 player, put on my headphones, and start cleaning the house while belting out whatever song was playing at the time.
Jaimie was on his way home for lunch, but told me not to let that ruin my plans. So while he secluded himself in the office, I went nuts vacuuming the entire house. I even went so far as to bust out the attachments and get all the baseboards and corners and also the ottoman! ^.^
Once I was done with that, I went out on the back porch and swept all the leaves off it ... I had been getting slightly annoyed with them being blown inside when I'd open the door to let the dog in/out. It was definitely nice to walk around in the cold air while sweeping ... I got myself all hot inside doing all the vacuuming!
After that, I grabbed Luna's pillow and blanket and threw them in the wash. I swear, that dog sheds like no tomorrow. While I was outside, I gave her a good brushing and ended up with a "tribble" on the brush! lol
Next, I sat on my bed, debating how we could rearrange our room and the living room just to make things 'different'. I think we'll leave them the way they are tho. =D However, my shoe rack in my closet will be moved to the closet near the front door ... that way I have more space in my closet for other things!! =D
While I was sitting on the bed, Jaimie came in and asked if I was okay. I told him about rearranging things and he just smiled and said, "You're nesting, love." I kinda realized that while I was going nuts with the vacuum ...but I really didn't want to totally admit it. =D But, regardless of my cleaning frenzy, it totally feels great to have a *super* clean house. LOL I've always been way too lazy about cleaning (I *hate* it), so it's really nice to see it look good. =D
Next up ... having Miah clean his room and his desk. I swear, I can't see his floor anymore ...and I absolutely refuse to go in there anymore for fear I'll step on something hidden underneath the layers of clothing and hurt myself. But I remember those years, so I try not to freak out too much! =D
Anyway, off to make something to eat then get back to work!! Yay for nesting!!! =D
