IT'S NOT EASY BEING A SOUTHERN BELLE-EVEN AFTER YEARS OF PRACTICE!

I CONFESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This will come as no revelation to my family, but I tend to be "just a little" bit obsessive about cleanliness of my home. This leads to frantic out of control feelings when groups of work people are traipsing in and out of our house. Ok-maybe its a little bit OVERBOARD to clean up after them everyday when they leave------------but I feel so much better when the top layer that they have strewn through the house is cleaned up! How many people do you know that blow off all the outside decks every day? I really am so much better than I when I was younger--but inbred OCD genes are difficult to overcome!

The slate is down and tomorrow it is cleaned and sealed and then Friday AM grouted. Hopefully they will be out of here then. I had a talk with the granite man and he promised to be here Friday early. He needs to be careful-I tend to spread the word when displeased! My new appliances are in Dallas and I requested they bring them next week-for obvious reasons. The goal of getting back into my kitchen in two weeks will not be met, but now the question is just when. I will show you pictures when we have a finished floor project.

Ran our 5 miles this AM. Sandra actually was able to join us after being off for 5 weeks. For the first time in probably 10 years, I actually was in front of her. If I was off for five weeks, there would be no way I could go out for 5 miles the first time out. Give her a week and I will be eating her dust and in two weeks I won't be able to even see the distant cloud of that dust. OH WELL! Mel came and joined us-a true natural runner. I know she thought molasses would run down the road faster.

I keep hearing that they may pass a bill that "Sagging" is illegal. I have an idea or two for punishment. What makes someone think that we want to see their underwear? When I worked at the hurricane shelter, I was totally amazed at all the young men wanting huge size clothes. What is that about? HUGE GENERATION GAP on this one.

When I had my chimney rebuilt, the workers were able to sling mortar on my walls! I thought I would go nuts! Don't they have medications for OCD?
