I have a sweet deal going these days. Cleaning services. I've purchased several deals on Groupon and Living Social and I've found a service I like. They're supposed to come one more time under the package I purchased; after that, I'll have them come once a month. I thought I'd then clean once a month and just maintain an acceptable level of filth in the intervening weeks.
So today, Saturday, it was my turn to clean. Doing it once a month couldn't really be too bad, could it?
I did something today that I haven't done in a long time: I spent the entire day cleaning house. No, not that it was that dirty. It's just that I kept rewarding myself for cleaning bits and pieces with a little blog reading break. And you know I blame you, right? Of course I do.
And I truly do thank you too. Last year when I switched computers, I lost my favorites list, which meant I had to reconstruct my blog list, and I really was too lazy to do that, so I ended up just visiting a few close "friends" regularly. After awhile, I realized I wasn't getting inspiration from Blogland any more than a hermit gets inspiration from the big city he never visits. So asking you to tell me about your favorite blogs helped me tremendously. I've now visited most of them--at least most of those suggested so far--and found a bunch of great projects and nuggets of inspiration to encourage me to think up something of my own.
And I found a little gift to thank you--if you left a comment on yesterday's post and yours is the name I randomly draw tomorrow night:
And I'd also like to return the favor and list a couple blogs I stumbled upon today. These weren't recommended by you but I found them through blogs that were--as I was procrastinating on cleaning toilets:
Vintage Trailer Lady--Love her sewing room a couple posts down!
Clare's Craft Room--Check out her Easter egg craft project, also a couple posts down.
Clover & Violet--I really need to make a cover for my Kindle from their tutorial.
Okay, seriously? It's after 11 p.m. and I still have to clean the bathroom floors. I guess I'd better get that done. Tomorrow I'm heading back into the Sweat Shop with a clear conscience, a clean house, and a bucket full of inspiration.
