Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning

I did clean the carpet. Wow. Nasty. It amazes me every time how dirty that carpet gets. Grody, grossness. If we stay- no more carpet. All hard floor. Now I need to dust (with pledge, not the easy way with the swiffer) and clean the bathrooms and kitchen. Mop floors. Wash sheets. I'll do this over the course of the next 3 days. Then the house will be PERFECT while we are gone for all the lookie loos we better have.

I need some flyers. There are NO flyers in my info box. I hate that thing being empty. Especially when people are driving by and there is nothing for them to pick up.

I broke down and bought ant killer today. The 'organic' methods are just not working. With us leaving for a spell, I can't chance that our yard and home won't be completely over taken by the little monsters. I dumped about 3 cups of straight vinegar on the large fire ant hill. It killed the grass. I thought it had worked, until I started poking around it today and found where they moved. Same area just a little farther north where I didn't drown them in the vinegar. I've got all kinds of ugly names I am thinking right now, but I'll keep them to myself. I am so generous, I even put stuff on the neighbors 3 LARGE ant hills in their yard. They aren't there, so A. they don't know about them and B. I don't want the buggers coming to my yard. I'm nice like that.

Should I collect all the rabbit poos for the compost pile? Seriously. I can't even believe how much we have in our yard. It's insane.

New Hair

Oh, I finally did it. I got the red highlights. I have been threatening for awhile now. I got the best haircut ever, too. No seriously- I never spend any money on my hair. So I spent a little this time. What, praytell, have I been holding back for? *shaking head, and rolling eyes*
I feel like a new woman. I told the awesome lady who did my hair (she's actually a neighbor that has her own salon) that I would be over in a day for her to straighten it out again. I didn't even know my hair could look so shiny and silky and smooth! WOW!

Anyways- T-Minus 5 days to Hawaya. Sweet.

I sent in an application to Designed to Sell. I love that show. I think we will be denied because my house is already perfect. Because why? Because I watch that show...ALL the time. Can't get enough. What I can do without is the OBVIOUS staging of people coming in and making comments on the very things they changed. For instance: "I love that shelf, I can see our Hummel collection on that." Um yeah... the shelf is staying?? Or comments about the curtains. WHO CARES?

I'll tell what else I like to watch. It's like a flipping trainwreck. I cannot remove myself from the radiation emitting electronic device. MillionDollarListing. It's insane. WHO would buy or sell a house with an agent that looks like he's still in high school? I don't get it. That Chad character kills me with that hair. I thought he was like 18, apparently he's 30. Huh?! Crazy drama. I'm always down for some drama, as long as it isn't happening to me!

Speaking of real estate, we have relisted. We'll see what happens. I think I'll clean the carpet tomorrow...maybe.... *shrug*

Oh dear- today's rant

I am going to just say it out loud. I fear for our country's future. I have major disdain for Obama and that guy has NO record of ever doing anything except for talking a good game. What everyone sees in him is way beyond me.

I think McCain is unstable and he picks a woman (that's not a problem) with 5 kids with a soap opera of her own. I don't even see how she would be able to focus on her duties as a VP of a country. And yes, I would question a man's abilities as well were he in the same scenario. HOWEVER, men and women ARE NOT the same and I hate to say it, but women tend be a little more involved in these things vs a man. I'm just saying.

What are our choices, again? Is this really the best we can do?

I was all for Ron Paul, but he dropped out. I guess I should go see what Bob Barr is all about. I'm still on the fence, but I already decided some time ago I wasn't voting for McCain.

Why can't we be more like Switzerland? Is that so wrong? Do we HAVE to meddle in EVERYTHING? We're like the nosy neighbor who has be involved in everybody's business. I just don't get it. I also detest the idea of socialist health care. People are so lazy that the government must do EVERYTHING for them. Where does the money come from people? I'm over the 'I am owed' attitude. Ov-er it. Talk to the Canadians. It's a great idea in theory- but it doesn't work. I've asked. You'll wish you never asked for it.

Looks like Gustav wasn't as bad as originally thought. That's good news. I though Hanna was going to boomerang back out to sea, but I guess like every woman, she changed her mind. :D Hopefully she won't be too angry when she gets closer to land. We don't need that much rain again. Seriously.

Want to see something funny. Go watch this skit from Mad TV.
