morning all, well, the ironing project taught me to look into dry cleaners that do this for a minimal charge! Haven't ironed in years and it took 3 hours, a sore back and neck muscles...yeah, so not worth it. Since I now work in a more professional type of environment, ironed and starched clothes are more important, but, I will be looking into the costs of having it done rather than doing it!

Cleaning the kitchen (this is a massive clean, where I wash the walls, windows, curtains, and move what I can out of the room to get behind it) was kind of downhill from the ironing project. Did not finish, but, quit at 9 pm. Will have to finish this 1/2 today and do the other 1/2 next week. Phew! I need a weekend to recover from my weekend!

Anyway, hope that all has a great day. Gear up for another hot week; more records to be broken, I understand. We have (apparently) developed a la nina weather system which says that the winter will be milder and there will be more hurricanes!

Look into some nice seersucker blouses. You never iron seersucker. It's the gift that keeps on giving every time you wash.

WOW from the driver, location, type of track and what station aired this

Great race.

Hey guys: if anyone is planning a last minute get away to the Carolina beaches pls watch out for jelly fish!! Sucker "got me good" on my calf last week (Hilton Head). I am now having an extreme delayed allergic reaction (not life threatening) and am on steroid creams and anti-histamines for the next week. My leg is swollen and very itchy!

I'd post a picture of my leg but I'm trying not to look at it too much
