"Goody Goody it's Cleaning Day"

When I (Taylor) was a younger lady, I had a book called "goody goody, its shopping day". It was about a papa bear and a little daughter bear that would go grocery shopping, and at the end of the shopping excursion, daughter bear got a prize from a quarter vending machine.  I LOVED that book.

Today will be similar, except it is "John Bear" and "Taylor Bear" in a furious last ditch effort to get our sh*t in order. We will be cleaning from top to bottom, and organizing along the way. And hopefully taking about twelve trips GOODWILL. And at the end of the 'excursion', instead of a quarter machine goody, I am sure we will reward ourselves with some margaritas and a good night of sleep.

Unfortunately, our three day weekend isn't going to be spent the way I had planned it (Seattle), but the rain came and cleaning (and saving money) sounded like a better option.  Plus, John Bear is at the grocery store right now getting us goodies for brunch burritos and replenishing our empty stock of ground coffee.

High hope that today will be well worth it, and in 13 days we will be on our way to a week ++ vacation to see San Fran, The Menslage Bunch, Mexican Beaches, Tobasco's in Cabo and perhaps Disneyland.

Happy Labor Day!

That's all!

I wonder if we will go to Seattle this weekend for some original Starbucks coffee and a $5.00 bouquet of beautiful fresh flowers?

It has been nearly three years since we last went there! Blasphemous.

It has been another early Tuesday morning for me. Paperwork for my job is astronomical right now, and maybe forever. I have designated Tuesday mornings extra early to start-complete my mandatory scribbles. The above was a random thought/daydream (or maybe I am still asleep-dreaming)/side note that distracted me from the grind.

Hope everyone is having a good week.
