And so, 'tis Friday

I don't feel like taking stock of the week (although I did make some great beef stock this week!).

I don't feel like identifying my favorite things. Although having an attitude of gratitude is a good thing.

I don't feel like revisiting the grief that has been weighing on me. I'm tired of feeling sad and trying to cope with crying jags.

No, I've decided that I'm going to clean. 

When the going gets tough, the tough start cleaning.  

I just made that up.

I'm going over to our new house to tackle the family room carpet with my industrial strength vacuum cleaner.

Wish me luck because I think that carpet (red shag from the 1970s) may have its own ecosystem living within its fibers.  Eek!

Hank Williams Jr., canine extraordinaire, will go with me, cowering at my feet because he's afraid I will leave him alone in the house. Clearly we have some adjusting to do in that quarter.

I promise to take "before pictures" this weekend and post them soon.

Love that old 70s shag carpet. Our house in southern Virginia had that. It was awful, but we were broke so we lived with it. Red? Can't wait to see the pictures!
