A funny note to my old roommates

 This past weekend I decided to take a spontaneous trip (by spontaneous I mean I planned a week in advance) to the Troy area to visit some friends that I haven't seen in almost 10 years!!!  Crazy!!  While I was there, I was joking with them that I needed to post a "dear old roommates" post - since most of these girls where either an old roommate, or next door neighbor (and in Troy that was the same thing!)
 So here is an entertaining letter to all those roommate (and really anyone) weather I lived with you in college, camp, FOCUS, or well let's be honest this applies to mom and dad too!
 This is for all those times that you walked into a room and found ANOTHER cup sitting out, soccer gear everywhere, or dishes in the sink - I promise I didn't do it out of malice!  I honestly just didn't realize I was messy.  For all those times you picked up after me, or folded my clothes and mumbled under your breath....."one day she'll know" Well I know!
 I now, clean, wash, clean, cook (yes I cook!), fold, sweep, vacuum, mop, plus tax!  Please understand this is not a post about me complaining about cleaning, it's not.  I actually don't mind it at all.  I love all the mess (most of the time) b/c I know I am so blessed to have all these amazing soul's to clean up after......
But I do bend over, pick something up and think of all my wonderful old roommates.  I now know what it takes to keep a place looking nice, clean, sanitized......thank you for not yelling at me (or if you did we got over it).  I love you all and I hope you have enjoyed this little post inspired by your patience with me in my late teens early 20's!

I haven't been on your blog in sooo long! Loved Stephen's soccer pix and all of your worry over being "that mom", btw, your not... you would never have time to be - HA!
Reading this post about your lack of cleaning skills back in the day reminded me of growing up and how crazy different we were, but how much we loved each other anyway! You the 6yr old slob and me the 6yr old OCD cleaning maniac. What a pair ; - ) Your blog makes me LOL!
