Tsk, Tsk......Will Ever I Learn?

Yes, I know, its been quite a few days since last I posted. But I've been a very busy, industrious little girl. Ha! Girl! Old Girl at that!

Once I got started on cleaning, (an extremely belated spring cleaning!), I have not stopped. The starting was all it took, you see.

  I've been cleaning windows and closets, and every thing in between. I will definitely have to have a garage sale this fall! LOL!
The hubby took to using both sides of the closet in my absence. The closet is filled with ……well, mostly golf shirts!
There are, of course, pants and golf shorts too, however, not so much as all the shirts, shirts, and more shirts!!!

They hang on both sides of the closet, but he only uses the newer ones on one side. The others are older shirts and he NEVER wears them! There must be at the very least, two dozen of them. 

Yes, most definitely calls for a garage/yard sale in the near future.

I'm hoping that we'll not be hit by any of the tropical storms they've forecasted for this season. Although, the weather people are saying that we're due for a really bad one this year, and unfortunately I tend to agree. However, with a little luck and a lot of praying!!

we'll get missed by the worst of them!

Anyway, changing the subject now! We have company coming down to visit next week!! Can't wait to see them! They are very dear friends, and always wonderful guests. They are sweet people, and always pitches in with anything that happens to need doing.

One time when they were here, they helped us ……well, helped ME to clean the weeds out of all my flower beds and then spread the fertilizer too!

They always bring their son whom is a young man now, and strong. He jumps right in and helps! He is a very polite and well brought up young man. As I said, they are wonderful people, and I always enjoy their visits tremendously!!

I will also be getting my first check from SSD. I am excited about that too! I can finally afford to purchase a new mattress for our guestroom!!

The hubby had purchased a ummm……..very (cheap-cheap!) mattress from a discount store. The darn thing squeaks and squawks something awful.

I've told him I that I felt it showed a lack of consideration for the comfort of any family, or friends who come down to visit on their vacation. They would get a better mattress even in the cheapest of motels!!

He gives me the same old excuse that…wellllllll……I couldn't see spending a lot of money on it, since it ONLY got used, once or even twice a year at most.

Currently it is being used by ME! No, we do not sleep together for many reasons that I do not wish to go into here. Hmmm? Actually, I believe I've explained that arrangement in one of my earlier posts.

He is cheap like that with everything EXCEPT maybe himself and his OWN COMFORT!!

Did I ever mention that my hubby is just a tad selfish?
Well…….not, (I suppose), without good reason. He was an only child you see…….his mother & father spoiled him disgustingly! I suppose that they are to be forgiven for the spoiling, but you would think that once he'd grown up he would have also gotten a little less selfish, less self-involved.
I'm not saying that I don't love him or that he isn't a good man………well, he can be a good man when he really wants to.

Anyway, hubby worked every morning of this past week at the golf course. Usually he works four days a week, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, with Wednesdays off. However, the one who normally works on Wednesday was off, so hubby worked it too.
He only works about three hours in the mornings, and then he's done. He can stay and play a few rounds of golf after that, or come home if he so chooses. On Saturday, he played in a tournament for the City employees.

I had planned to do some more cleaning on Saturday, unfortunately my pain levels decided to peak!

I have no idea why my neck is more painful one day than it is another, it just IS. I have been doing quite a bit of cleaning lately, mostly because we have guests coming down next week, and I want the house to be at the very least clean.

In the meantime I plan to slowly update every room, from the kitchen to the great room, to every bedroom and bath. It'll be slow going, but I have the time, so I can go as slow as needs be.
