PATIENCE... isn't just for hospitals!

Patience is a virtue, or so I've been told.  I wouldn't know.  I've been accused of many things in my life, but never patient or virtuous.  However, now at the age of 45 I guess its time for a few lifestyle changing lessons.  This old dog is going to try a new trick. And so I am giving patience a try.

Hard as it is, I must leave the mess and clutter to accumulate around my house.  The dirty dishes crust over as I wait eagerly for the inevidible call from 'Clean Sweep'.  I hold my breath every time I walk into my house, peeking with anticipation for evidence of a surprise visit from the cast and crew of 'While You Were Out'.  I run to the window, hoping that the black SUV with designer 'FAB5' plates has pulled up to my house.

As of yet, nothing.  And so I sit, patiently, in my messy abode, washing just what I need, afraid to straighten up anything for fear of being too neat and organized to qualify for the make-over.  With my luck they'll all pull up right about the same time the Publishers Clearing House representative arrives with my 3 foot cardboard check and balloon bouquet.  Well, thats a risk I'll just have to take.

I hope its Carson who comes to the door, he's just so darn cute and funny!  And that Kyan dude, wow!  He could  make a straight woman wish she were a gay guy!

OMG I'm so with you.  I would not have a problem with any of them showing up and redoing everything...I'd love a magic wand "poof" everything done. Ah, well sometimes reality bites.  Sandi

I love watching Clean Sweep and While You Were Out.  Just don't have much time for it anymore. :-(

Blessings!

You are such a nut. I never would have thought of those excuses for not cleaning. Have a great day.
