Kelly, over at Kelly's Korner has a show us your life Fridays. Every Friday she has a theme, such as things you collect, or room makeovers. I want to participate, but being a newbe to blogging, I don't know if I know how to link my blog to hers. So I am going to try. When we bought a house in Lake Elsinore 25 years ago, the ad read Mrs. Clean lives here and then it went on to describe the clean, lovely house. When we bought it I told my girlfriend what the ad said. She replied,"little does she know Mrs. Clean is moving in" Yes, I like to clean, or maybe I don't like to clean, I am not sure. What I am sure about is that I like a clean house. I believe that the only way to achieve that is to clean. I know the hubby and daughter won't clean, so that leaves me. The problem I have had with hubby is that if the house looks nice, he doesn't see any reason to clean. When I ask him to vacuum, he will reply "why it looks fine to me". So instead of bickering about it, I just do it. When the kids were younger they caught on real fast. If I asked them to do something, they would do a lousy job and I would usually do it over and never ask them again to do that particular chore. I enjoyed reading the cleaning tips on Kelly's Korner. One of the tips was to buy a bounce fabic softener bar. You stick it in the dryer and it lasts for about two months. Well, after I read the tips, I went to target and what did I have to buy, you got it, a bounce bar. She was right, the smell of the clothes out of the dryer was so much nicer that the fabric sheets. My best tip is "Spot Shot". Any time I see a spot on the carpet, I clean it with Spot Shot and it really does the job of getting the spot out for good. I also have my carpets cleaned twice a year by a professional. But between the professional cleanings, I alway have a can of spot shot handy.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 38 years. We have three grown children, Alisha, Wesley and Melissa. A son in law a daughter in law and 5 super grandchildren. After living in Southern California almost all our lives, we moved to Kansas. It has been a big change in our lives and we have handled all the challenges well. I have decided to get back into blogging and detailing all of our adventures in the midwest. I love the Lord, my husband, my family and my friends.
