Sketchie Vs. The Broom

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on February 17, 2009

Good evening!

I hope you are all enjoying your day. My day was very productive! I cleaned house– top to bottom! Well, I haven’t quite finished everything yet but I cleaned for several hours today.

Everything was dusty since the boys sanded down the walls in the family room and it was driving me nutso.

Today’s workout (*smiles) included:

  • Swept + vacuumed entire main level
  • Mopped kitchen + eat in + entry way
  • Swept and mopped staircase
  • 2 loads of laundry
  • Stripped spare bed and put new sheets on
  • Emptied all garbage’s
  • Stripped my bed and made it
  • Cleaned our Master Bathroom (Scrubbed toilet, Windex’d mirror, cleaned and organized counter)
  • General tidying
  • Cleaned kitchen sink + counter tops
  • Tidying of office, put away papers, mail, etc.

It felt great to get the house in order! :) I love the feeling of a clean house. I will finish up the cleaning tomorrow.

We just got back from the airport– we dropped off my brother-in-law as he is now on his way back home! It was nice to visit with him, and we reeeally hope him and my sister + nephews will be moving back in the near future! ;)


Good news– my upset stomach has been fine today- whew! I was worried I was getting the flu bug that is going around…everyone we know has it!


Celebrity Sketchie Video

I present to you…..‘Sketchie Vs. The Broom’

No cleaning spree is complete without my crazy sidekick!!! LOL. He has been acting extra weird lately, I don’t know what it is!

[Turn up sound for full effect] ?posts_id=1793485

The funny thing is, I got about 5 of these videos in a row because he kept doing it. I was in HYSTERICS laughing. Remember this afternoon’s post about Sketchie??? I said a day doesn’t go by that I don’t laugh my ass off from that cat….I don’t lie.

Remember this video from when he was a kitten?

Some things never change!

Stay tuned for more…I will upload some tomorrow. :D


You Voted on the Top News Worthy Story of the Day

In this morning’s post you told me what you thought was the most interesting health story of the day:

The winner: “Top Foods To Lift Your Mood”

Do you consume the following foods on a regular basis?

1) Bananas (daily)

2) Popcorn (no)

3) Water (daily in the form of tea mostly)

4) Spinach (daily)

5) Salmon (1-2x per week)

Will you be adding any of these mood boosting foods to your diet more frequently? Do you notice certain foods that boost your mood?

Ok, this may be a huge placebo effect but ever since I started eating spinach on a daily basis (it has been a couple weeks now), I feel that it really does boost my mood. I just had a huge spinach salad with dinner and I feel strangely giddy tonight. Could it be the B vitamins?!


I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.
                –Maya Angelou

I thought I would end tonight with some of my own motivational words:

Keep the faith, no matter how dark and winding the road,

A smile goes a long way,

Chin up, hold your head high,

This too shall pass.

Challenges make us stronger,

better people, we grow,

filling our hearts with more love.

Stop dwelling on the past, don’t delay,

Your life is worth living TODAY.

Cya tomorrow morning everyone! I’m off to watch 24! LOL

Spinach: I eat that or broccoli rabe almost every day. I think it’s the iron. It definitely keeps my energy up!

Sketchie is hilarious!

Nice job on the house work! You’re more than welcomed to come clean our apartment. anytime! ;)

Seems like you’re making lots of progress if you’re able to do all of the cleaning and home renos without pain. You’re obviously taking good care of yourself! keep it up!

Kaneil, balanceisbest

there really isn’t anything like a clean house! what a great feeling!
i eat at least one banana a day and drink between 48 – 64 oz of water. i should be drinking 64 according to my new years resolution but hey 48 ain’t too shabby!


Marianne February 17, 2009 at 11:05 pm

Okay, that video of Sketchie & the mirror is so freakin’ funny. Cats are hilarious when I realize there is a reflection on the mirror.

I eat bananas and salmon and drink water very regularly. We alternate buying spinach and lettuce for salad every week. Graham loves popcorn and makes it often, but it’s not the healthiest! ;)

I heart Sketchie!


Colleen February 18, 2009 at 8:39 am

Sketchie is hilarious!! I’ve watched the videos twice!

And I must say that the floors in your kitchen are beautiful! What kind of hardwood are they?
