Sip Happens!

(Image credit:  Pinterest, 8/13/14). I could not stand it any longer.  I took the big step, the plunge, I dove right in!  I cleaned my house today!  I dusted, cleaned bathrooms, and mopped floors.  Lucky for me, my stupendous husband volunteered to vacuum.  That is huge.  With two Pomeranians, we always vacuum up enough fur … Continue reading Sip Happens!
