Only my kitchen has to be spotless before I go to bed at night!

The rest of my house isn't a big deal to me but, there's something about the the first room I visit in the morning - the kitchen for my coffee - that has to be clean when I walk into it every day!

I do, I do.... I wrote an entire blog post about it today. My desk is semi-messy, but I do believe to some degree that a clean desk is the sign of a sick mind.

It's another snowy day in Erie, PA so I plan to clean out my closet. While working in the walk-in closet I won't see what's happening outside.  Bye.

Good morning Fred,

I cleaned last week, but it is interesting to know that there is a National Clean Off Your Desk Day. Is there a day of the year that doesn't have a National Day?
