Still kicking...bug's butt's.

Remember when I wrote this post? Well.....wonder why I haven't been around the last few days?

They are back!!!!
I have been cleaning and sweeping and vacuuming.....and sleeping when I get a moment. Those blasted bugs!
I suppose it would have been good if I had swept under our bed over the winter and made sure no textiles touched the floor. But that was not my reality. I do not like to dust in our bedroom without a window open and Dave had hammered it shut for the winter. I finally cracked the seal the other day and got the spring clean on.
I was surprised to find the creepy crawly's but shouldn't have been. While sweeping out the mega bunnies I came across a few Cheerios's, most likely a few months old. I must keep on the under the bed situation now!
I dealt with the little nasty dudes and moved on to the next room. I am soooo afraid now!

However I suppose this was for the good. It kicked my sorry butt into gear and I am also dealing with my gazillion loads of laundry I was putting off. I am hoping that by the end of this week the whole house is in order and running like a well oiled...uh....uh....hmmmm, I am not sure what. But you get the picture. Machine?
So I am back-ish, we'll see how well this cleaning kick goes. We still have to have fun, dance like ballerina's and eat ice cream too so it might take longer than I hope.
I am also massively inspired by the cleaning and am dying to renovate, paint walls, canvases and do some sewing, if only I had 8 arms and 4 heads!

On a completely different note, what do you think of my new blog design?
If you have a regular computer screen(not wide screen) how does it look, does it all fit?
Please let me know so I can tweak away if need be, thanks a bunch!

Ewww at the bugs!!!

I love the new banner - so awesome! I have a normal width (15") monitor and sadly the picture doesn't fit on my screen, but that's okay ... I can scroll across to see the rest :-)

I love your new banner and I am betting you drew that yourself...right?! I have a regular screen and I can see the whole thing...maybe it is a setting thing. I am on the wagon with you! It is spring break here and I am CLEANIG, SORTING, DECLUTTERING, DEJUNKING and getting ready to re-tile the bathroom and front entrance. It is nice to have Kaitlynn home from school as I can bribe her with slurpees to watch over Luke while I get some of these things done!

Ewwww....I am no good at bugs, either. I share your pain and hope they are gone FOR GOOD.

Love the new banner. Very cool and cute and everything you are :)

I love the new look, very fancy :). And it fits on my widescreen 15" laptop. I use Firefox though, that could be the difference.

And I hate, hate, hate bugs. I freak out when I find too many.

I recruited Hubby for a clean down of the house yesterday. It just goes so much faster when he helps and he is really meticulous on the vacuuming, so the carpets look wonderful. I got to put away and dust and clean while he vacuumed away.

I know what you mean about needing 8 hands though. I could just use a few extra hours in the day... but with the kids asleep though ;)

I love the new look Anna! It fits across my regular laptop screen fine. Love the banner and colours!

Sorry about those dratted bugs again. I can't stand creepy crawlers.

I love the new site. So cute. I love the colors and the banner, did you make that with the waccom or whatever it's called??!

The only thing that gets cut off on my size screen is "kers" at the end of your name. (bonkers.)
