Crapola...AND a GiVeaWay!!!

Pin It
 So, I've just finished cleaning my bathroom and sweeping my carpeted steps.  Yes, you heard correctly...I swept my steps.

I've been a bit of a slacker since the dreaded 'car accident' last May and have had to rely on my dear 'Schmoo' (that's the hubster Jim) to do ALOT of the physical chores around here since then.  I really appreciate all he does...but...how do I put this...well...ya see, he's kind of a shover of stuff more than a 'cleaner'.

Stasha, the hair culprit. (pardon the risque pose please)
It's beyond me really how one can trek up and down the same set of stairs millions okay, hundreds of times a day and not really look down to see... the disgusting layer of dog and (camera shy) cat hair that has accumulated there.  Now before you go judging me... YES, those stairs have been vacuumed a few times this last year!  Just not like I would have done it.

Since I still can't lug the big ole monster vac up and down those stairs,  I swept my way down from the bathroom.  And Oh my gosh... I can't believe the crap that came off.  I feel so much better about the house now...(allergy attack coming, taking antihistamine as we speak)

And yes this story has a purpose...to me, anyway.

As I was sweeping, of course I was thinking.  Scary thought if I do say so but...
 Getting rid of this barely visible layer of crud is kind of what I'm trying to do with myself.  Kind of shedding the negative cruddy stuff that's been bogging me down for over a year now!  Getting rid of the old way of thinking and adopting a fresh and pure outlook. 
It's time for the self doubt and negative thoughts to go.  Right out to the garbage with the crapola from the stairs. 

SO, imagine my extreme joy if you will when I sat here to take a quick 5 min break from the housework and noticed I had a new follower!  Yippee!  Now I know you all can remember this joy when your blog was in it's baby stages!  It really warms the heart!  The power of positive thinking!

So, without delay please take a moment to meet my new friend,
