  1. Sounds amazing! I can almost taste it!!!

    Thanks for stopping by hun and your words I so needed to know I'm not alone. Rick does the same thing one in a blue moon he'll vacuum or every 3 mo he'll do the carpet cleaner and it's a big thing why doesn't it stay clean! UGH!!!

  2. Yes - has my husband been re-incarnated (while still alive?) He does the same thing - when he cleans, he's so picky about how neat something stays. When I clean and get mad when he doesn't keep something tidy, I'm being uptight.
