Late entry

I'm sorry this entry is so late today.  I started removing wall paper from the kitchen wall today at 9am.  By noon I was done...finally.  It was only under the cabinets...on one wall.  However, before I put that paper up I failed to prep the wall properly and the paper was a real "stinker" to remove.

I took a break here and there to answer the phone, get something to drink or change a wet diaper.  We did MickeyD's for dinner as my stove was covered with junk from the counter.  I got the wall painted where I wanted to and started priming and the first coat of paint on one of the set of cabinets.  I finally stopped at 9pm to watch Big Brother with Ray. 

LOL  We are big fans of the Big Brother and Survivor shows.  It's been a real pip so far this season.  I never liked Will, but he sure does keep it entertaining.  I still think Mike Boogie rides on Will's coat tails and acts like a spoiled little boy.  I even wonder if he isn't hiding a bit in the "closet", ya know?  Theres just something about that boy that has my gaydar up, lol.  I am sooooo happy that James is about to get his stanky butt evicted.  I never did like that boy.  Janelle is a bit ditzy sometimes...but I think she is playing that one up a lot.  I think it's part of her strategy.  I think she is cute, I like her.  Except for when she acts too cocky and you know she doesn't really know what little lies are going on.

Anyway...on with todays Cleaning tip.


A cleaning tip, or two, that you may find useful.  As I say on my Web page, these aretips that have been emailed to me, or that I have found on the Internet.  I have not tried all of them and do NOT guarantee their effectiveness.  If you do try one and it works, or if you have another one that works for you, please let me know.

Mothball Alternative: A better idea than using mothballs is to take your leftover soap slivers and put them in a vented plastic bag. You place the bag with seasonal clothes before packing them away. Not only will the scent prevent them from moth harm but also they'll smell great when you pull them out. I especially like this for sweaters, which can be difficult to remove the odor of mothballs from. Using soap you simply have a clean smell rather than the smell of an attic.
Well, I'm off to get some sleep so I can get up tomorrow morning and start in on the cabinet painting...ugh!
Have a good one!

Love love love BB Allstars. Mike I do like him but yeah something is not kosher with him. Janelle is way ditzy but I also think some of it is an act or at least I hope it is...cause oh boy if it's not Lol. I can't wait for tonight's show. I hope James goes although Chicken George has become a little sneaky himself lately.

Hugs, Angela
