While getting ready for my mother to arrive, I got side tracked (as usual) and never got the floors done downstairs. Good thing though, as my nine year old spilt half a Dr. Pepper on the wood floors...knew there was a reason I never got to it! This weekend was a work weekend if anything. Friday night started off with one word...FLEAS! My princess, who is seldom goes outside has been attacked by fleas. Within the past two weeks, she's had 2 Frontline treatments and now 2 baths...she's going in tomorrow for grooming and a good flea dip as well! I was sitting outside talking to a neighbor friend, and she found more flea poop on her ears. After further inspection, we realized she was covered in it. Stopped what I was doing and tortured her with a long soak in flea soap and then sprayed the yards. This is yet another thing that I will blame on the 15 cats that live to the right of us...seriously! Saturday we woke up and started on the pool. It took almost all day, between the leveling and the filling process, but I think it will be well worth the labor! Again, thankful that we have great neighbors who gave up their Saturday to sweat with us. My mother arrived with 18 succulents that she picked up on her way here from Alabama on her bathroom stops shortly after we started filling the pool.
