Monday Musings..on a Tuesday.

So I have been in a bad mood lately. I am not really sure why.  Don't really have much motivation to clean house but still do it anyway. It isn't my house's fault I'm cranky.  It is just a fact of life.  Am I supposed to have a reason? I didn't think so.

You all must know that I strive to live a drama free life.  I don't like drama, don't like hearing of other people's drama, don't like drama of my own.  The only drama I do like is fiction and it comes from books, movies or television.  With that being said, if you have any drama to cause, please leave my name out of it.  It gets old being brought into crap I prefer to stay out of.  If all else fails, I will ship my family (me, hubby, dogs) off to a deserted island and only communiate via smoke signal.  The way I see it, I am 27 years old and am not in high school anymore.  All the petty childish crap remains in the walls of high school, not out in the open world of adulthood.  This is just my opinion and since it's my blog, I get to express my opinion.  If ya don't like it, click the 'x' at the top right hand corner of the screen..

Back to the housework..most who know me and have been in my home know I am a lazy housekeeper.  I'd rather come home and park it in front of the TV than spend my freetime sweeping and moping and dusting and yada yada yada.  I discovered a website about 2 years ago that is slowly changing my approach on housework.  Granted, 2 years ago it didn't work, a year ago it didn't work, NOW it works.  It only works when actually applied.  Flylady is the name of it and Flylady is an actual person believe it or not. She encourages instilling daily habits and doing all your housework Monday-Friday and spending time with family on the weekends.  This sounds good to me since most of my weekends are filled with social events.  Flylady also encourages doing laundry on a daily basis and setting a timer for 15 minutes and seeing what you can accomplish.  Seriously, it is amazing what you can accomplish in 15 minutes.  Anything you can do to eliminate CHAOS (Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome), which is something that has been in my entire adult life.  Check out the website, even if you are a neat freak you will find ideas and things you can follow. I have started becoming OCD and germaphobic about cleaning!  Flylady's Website

Speaking of TV.. OMGosh one of my FAVORITE shows is coming back! Army Wives on Lifetime! I LOVE this show!!! Check out the premier of Season 5 this Sunday at 9/8 pm Central! :)

Guess this is all for now.. hope everyone has a great 1st week of March! :)


Playing catchup on my days..

Okay so I am running behind.  I am human, so sue me.

Day 4- A picture of your night ~ I'm not exactly sure what this means so I'm going to pass on this one..

Day 5- A picture of your favorite memory
Me, Kim & Nikki

My favorite memory comes from when I was 15 years old and I went to Memphis, TN to meet and spend the week with my sister, Kim, whom I had never met. It's quite a complicated story and would love to tell it face to face. :)

Day 6-A picture of the person you would like to trade places with for a day
Carrie Underwood

I just love her, she is so stinkin' talented it is unreal! I would love to vocally be her!!! Plus it would be kinda cool to attempt being her for a day. She seems to sweet and down to earth and not at all sucked in by Hollywood.  I mean Nashville.

Day 7- A picture of your most treasured item

This would have to be my wedding ring! Only because it means so much to me and is a daily reminder of the vows I shared with the man I love! :)

Day 8- A picture that makes you laugh
