It's Friday I'm In Love

On the Today show this morning they had people who are neat freaks. I wish I loved to clean. I love things to be clean but I don't get a high or excited about doing it. Last night I got chores done and that always makes me feel better. I didn't love scrubbing the toilets but they sure look purty. And the laundry is almost done but I always rank mine last. I like to have fresh sheets and towels before Jeff arrives. And clean dishes and the garbage out. At this point I should stop treating him like a guest but I just can't help it. But I always let him carry the groceries in. Men seem to love the challenge of seeing how many bags they can carry in one trip.
Had my highlights done yesterday and it loks so good I wore my hair straight today. I never do that for work because I feel undone. But why not show off this fabulous color? It cuts a good twenty minutes out of my morning routine too. I had all of my co-workers bring in the bulbs I gave them for Christmas. So they are planted in each cubicle and in a few weeks we should have Springtime all over the place.
