Every morning this week I have gotten up and headed off to town on all day errands, and the cleaning fairies have not been to my house once. Today is art, and lots of ladies are coming over. It looks like I am going to have to do some cleaning this morning since those fairies have been a no-show. I don’t really have any news anyway, and I left my camera at the GG’s house yesterday. I did take lots of pictures of the GGs in the $7.50 kiddy pool that I bought for them. It kept them entertained for hours. We also got a few watercolors done. I will try to post photos later.
My messy house did bring back an old memory. My freshman year at Texas Tech, I had this great roommate, LeAnn. She was a "luck of the draw" roommate and not someone I had already known. Boy, was I lucky – she was wonderful. LeAnn stood 5’12" in her stocking feet and was 6’2" with shoes. Since I am barely 5’2", we looked like Mutt and Jeff together, but we got along great. The memory was of mid-term finals. Both LeAnn and I had let our room go during finals. We had done no cleaning for a while and neither of us was especially a neat-freak. It got to the point where there was just a single path down the middle of the room – you had to pick your way through the mess to get to the beds or desks. I was sitting on the floor propped up against the bed studying. LeAnn was sitting at her desk studying and eating a banana. When she finished her banana, she hauled off and threw the peel across the room at the trashcan. The peel missed the trash and landed in the floor. Both of us looked at the peel on the floor. Then we looked at each other, shrugged our shoulders and continued studying – leaving the banana peel in the floor. It was one of those moments that was really funny, and we were so in tune with each other. The messy room did not bother either one of us – I loved that girl!
