This is a note I sent to a friend of mine and I thought I would share it with all of you. Although, after you read it you may think I have no right to ever write about homemaking again. But hopefully this will encourage someone and remind all of us to clean the mess when it happens, not 3 months later xoxoxox
"Okay I am warning you this is a negative note where I will be hard on myself but I need to vent, lucky you! So feel free stop reading here. I have just spent 2 1/2 solid hours cleaning my fridge. There was soo much black, sticky, gross stuff on the bottom of the fridge and other sticky stuff on the door. I kept having to pour hot water on it, let it sit, then wipe it up only to do it all again. Over and over and over. Luckily all the shelves fit in my big tub so I could soak and scrub them in the tub (Chloe is now scrubbing the tub for me and Aubern'e is cooking dinner, since I will be in a comma. Thank you girls!!!) Why do I do this to myself? You would think after 46 years of living I would know better. I HATE cleaning, so I ignore it, instead of dealing with it at the time. Then by the time I do get to it I have such a huge mess, agggg. I could just slap myself. I was smart enough to use rosemary and lavender oil in everything. So the aroma therap, keep me from killing someone. I am sitting here with a bright red face, boarding on purple. I am so hot, tried and frustrated with myself. Well at lest I got my aerobic workout. Well, when I cool down I am going to cut an herb bouquet for my fridge and take a picture for the blog. That and a piece of chocolate will be my reward. But please remind me in future not to be sooo stupid. Thank you for listening to this rant. You are tooo sweet to me, love Clarice"
