Yes. Well, I used to like cleaning.

Those of you that have been with me since the beginning of my blog life, know that I like to clean.
Then, came December.
I haven't cleaned since Thanksgiving.
I am really not kidding.
I have clothes on the floor.
In bizarre places, like the kitchen.
The playroom is the cleanest place in the house.
Does that tell you anything?
This afternoon, I am devoting time to the effort of cleaning.
Where is my fairy when I need her?

Okay, random thing that has nothing to do with this post.
Somebody just called and told me I won a $1000.00 online shopping spree.  
No fee except shipping and I pay using a gift certificate.  Something that has to do with Publishers and Mastercard.  Well, I am so thinking this is a hoax.  
When they said Online Publishers.   I thought:  Great.  I am probably about to get busted for not siting someone's photography correctly.
So what to make of the shopping  spree?  Do you think it's legit?  Did anyone else out there "win" today?  I wasn't very appreciative to the person that called if it is.  I wasn't rude either, but not the Sweepstakes Winner excited that she might have been looking for.
Perhaps, my fairy just sprinkled her fairy dust all over.

Thanks for your sweet comment, Andi! Maybe you really did win the spree! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!

I basically don't trust ANYTHING tht comes to me like that online! It is most likely a gimmick of some sort...and be sure not to give them any card numbers or addresses or anything until you have checked it out thourougly!

It is really OK about the cleaning...it will wait for you...and boys really don't care as long as you keep their tummies full! And really, with three boys around, well 4, really...my advice is aim for once a month. That should keep everyone happy...and you a little saner! :) Really, I am serious! :-

Sounds fishy! But, I'm not the one to ask. My computer has a virus which led to someone trying to charge $2200 on my credit card to British Airlines last weekend. UGH! My computer is at the shop (I am on my sister's right now). So, needless to say, I'm not very trusting with the whole online thing right now. LOVE the Christmas card post....precious pj's (and boys)!

Hey! I got no calls today...who knows...did that ask for anything fishy??

I'm about to post the recipe, and as for the linky thing, when your writing a post, there's a button at the top, right next to text color, it kinda looks like a bull to me, though it's not...anywho, highlight the name, click on that button, and it will pop up a url box, type in the blogaddress, and that should do it.

BTW, good luck with that fairy!! Everytime I leave to go clean SOMEONE ELSE'S house, I pray the "cleaning" fairy will come to mine and it will magically be cleaned when I get home...so far, NO LUCK!!! :)

Cleaning during the holidays is futile. I can't even blame my family because it's me! Flour and sugar are always spilled on the counter and floor (me), catalogs are lying around everywhere because of all the sales (me again). I'm waiting til spring to clean. As for the sweepstakes, just be sure you don't give them any of your personal numbers, not even your shoe size!
