I've Been To The Desert On A Horse With No Name

Remember that song? I bet it gets stuck in your head today!

Hello again my bloggie friends, I have missed you! I haven't been on a horse or in the desert, but I have been busy. I have found that if I blog in the morning, my day gets started to late. If I blog at night, my brain doesn't function. So what is a girl to do? I have also found that after a week or so of not blogging, it is hard to get back to it. I am back now though, so here is what I have been up to.

I steam cleaned Big's "Woman Cave," which is her creative space, game space and hide from me when I am pissed space. The carpet looked good, but smelled worse than when it was not clean. We had a hot water heater leak when we first moved here and the carpet in that room got wet and when it dried it smelled bad. I guess wetting it again made it smell worse. We ended up pulling up the carpet, removing the tack boards, scraping the carpet pad off the floor and then bleaching the floor. I figured I may as well paint the room, so I did that also! That project took about 4 days!

We went to Washington, D.C. for Big's conference and enjoyed ourselves. We drove into the city and went to the Smithsonian Natural Museum of History. It was a wonderful day (other than getting lost). We ate $8.00 hot dogs and had a $5.00 cookie! We got really lost going in and out of the city. Our directions sucked! Big's level of communication went down about 4 notches. She would tell me to turn after I had already gone straight! My level of frustration went up about 4 notches, so you can imagine the scene! We finally made it to the hotel - Big actually survived the trip! The hotel was great, we had a nice suite with a little kitchen. A nice breakfast was included as well as a dinner. I have never stayed at a hotel with dinner service! We chose to not eat dinner there and tried out some of the restaurants that were close. It was so nice to not have to plan and make dinner. There was a mall with about 200 shops right across the street from out hotel. I spent some time there! I also did hand work and read. It was so refreshing!

This week I have been very crafty. I will post some photos later. I am off to walk the dog (she has her little legs crossed). Then I will pressure wash part of the driveway and seal it. Remember when I started that project? I hope to finish it soon.

I will be going to get The Baby tomorrow. She is in need of some rest and some Momma love! I am more than happy to give it to her! We will be making some Halloween decorations. I LOVE me some Halloween decorating!

Hope you have a great day - I missed you all!

Pin It Now!

Enjoy your time with the Baby. I hope the 5 buck cookie was fabulous. Was it gold plated?

Looking forward to seeing your crafy projects!
