Obsessive about Cleaning

I do not know about you, but I am obsessive about cleaning.  I am obsessive when I use cleaning materials.  I love the micro fiber towels.  I love the different colors.  I use different colors to clean different areas.

The other day I took a 1.00 fan and from a garage sale, box box fan…I took it apart and cleaned it and already friends think it’s NEW.

I am obsessive about Organizing anything.  I love to keep utensils in the place properly in the kitchen.  Over flow items…need to go elsewhere.

Oh how it bugs me to have bad cutting knives!  If I want to cut a piece of meat, then I have to get new knives…any suggestions?

I vacuum every day!  And every single day, I get “this that and the other thing” found inside to vacuum, the kind you empty and see what you are throwing away, this makes me feel good because all of those pieces of garbage go exactly where they belong, in the garbage.

I am obsessive about researching and keeping important information, and ONE NOTE is the only place I put them.  It’s is the best thing next to a nice slice of fresh bread!  In college I have tabs for classes, notes, chapters, key terms, and so much more and I get to color code them!

What I hate to do is clean and organize for my spouse because over the years, he expects me to do it.  So he cooks, I clean, makes sense right?  NO!  He messes up the stove and everything he touches!  I feel like I am in a zoo!  Cleaning everything top to bottom, which is more work for me!

I do not separate clothes when I wash them!  SO how do you do that?  Wash whites separate from sheets, to socks, and what have you?  How unimportant it is to do this.

I tell ya world, if you lost everything like I have 3x, you learn to be a minimalist and learn to live without.  The best part is my bills are 300.00 a month and that is good considering when I get my master Degree in HRM generalist in 2019….I already have a plan for that too!

 

Obsessed with Pens

I have a huge collection of pens of all sorts, sized, and colors.  Fine Point and Think Point.  I have to STOP buying them!

I have a huge obsession with BOOKS.  My obsession started years ago when I lost all my books in a house fire.  At first I was bummed out to lose over 1000 books!  I even got an reader a KINDLE FIRE.  Well, that did not fix me.  I am still obsessed with true stories, true crime, like NCIS, CSI, Numbe3rs, Criminal Minds, and even Supernatural.

I also had a collection of Titanic books, old and new.   I am obsessed with the real story.

Now I am on a kick, to read one author and all the books they write…for example right now I am reading Iris JoHansen series.

BUT, I am also in College.

1st I got my AA in Paralegal in IL

2nd got my BA in Technical management

3rd I am working and half way done with my Master’s in Human Resources Generalist

I have been in college for ten years.  I raised my daughter 1st as a single mom.  My hubby walked out on us when she was 1.5 years old.  Going back to college is my passion and finishing is my passion.

So with all that said, I do college most of my free time.   On my spare time I spend with my two cats and or reading.  Here and there I get to watch Netflix movies.

What do you like to do on your FREE TIME?

 I’d Really Love To See You Tonight”
(originally by England Dan & John Ford Coley)

Hello, yeah it’s been awhile
Not much how ’bout you?
I’m not sure why I called
Guess I really just wanted to talk to you

And I was thinking maybe later on
We could get together for awhile
It’s been such a long time
And I really do miss your smile

I’m not talking ’bout movin’ in
And I don’t want to change your life
But there’s a warm wind blowing the stars around
And I’d really love to see you tonight

We could go walking through a windy park
Or take a drive along the beach
Or stay a home and watch TV
You see it really doesn’t matter much to me

I’m not talking ’bout movin’ in
And I don’t want to change your life
But there’s a warm wind blowing the stars around
And I’d really love to see you tonight

I won’t ask for promises
So you won’t have to lie
We’ve both played this game before
Say I love you
Say goodbye

I’m not talking ’bout movin’ in
And I don’t want to change your life
But there’s a warm wind blowing the stars around
And I’d really love to see you tonight

I’m not talking ’bout movin’ in
And I don’t want to change your life
But there’s a warm wind blowing the stars around
And I’d really love to see you tonight

Card of the Day – The Lovers – Sunday, February 4, 2018

POSTED ON  UPDATED ON 

Relationships and choices are on the agenda today. It is, after all, eclipse season, so all types of relationship matters will be coming to the forefront. The choices, however, may not be as imminent, and today may be a better day for reviewing them. With this card, it is always a good idea to review the patterns involved in your choices. You know the old saying, “If you keep on doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep on getting what you’re getting”. It speaks volumes. Recognize those patterns in your choices and how they have led you to this place…this moment. You see what I am saying? The time has come to choose differently, but you will need to wait until after the New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse in Aquarius passes to be able to make a more informed choice.

I also need to mention that today is Superbowl Sunday, and a vast majority of the world is rooting for the Underdogs, the Philadelphia Eagles. If you are watching, take the time to see what the Universe has up its sleeve. I chose today’s Lovers card long before the Eagles even won the championship, but there is still no coincidence that it is one with birds. Just sayin’. #goeagles #flyeaglesfly

Supreme Leadership: Gain 850 Years of Wisdom from Successful Business Leaders ★★★★★   from Jackie Paulson on January 24, 2018
 
Why being a supreme leader is learned from past authors and experts
 
Alinka Rutkowska takes her passion to help others. Have you wondered how leaders become successful in companies? 

Alinka Rutkowska takes her passion to help others. Have you wondered how leaders become successful in companies?  Richard Branson said that there is no greater thing you can do with your life and your work than follow your passion to serve the world and others around you.  “Leadership is about inspiring people to want to do something bigger than they could by themselves. That includes me.  I’m inspired by certain leaders who actually make our thinking bigger. You want to go and do something, and achieve a higher purpose than what you immediately could think of. Being with the right leader broadens your horizons. I think that we all can learn from reading books whether they are old or new. This book, talks about CEO’s and gives names, companies and their success or failures.  Each story I have read in “supreme leadership” gave me lessons worthy taking notes for myself.  This book is a must read for anyone who is or wants to be a true leader. It’s new, fresh and the stories are supreme. Supreme Leadership will change you and the people you surround yourself with if you read it and use the very practical examples. This book will show you how to go from great to supreme.
