Each week, Hilary at Feeling Beachie plans on listing four statements with a blank for us to fill in on our own blogs. If you want to join the fun and come up with four fill in’s of your own, please email them to her at If she uses them, she will add you as co-host to the hop! This week’s co-host is yours truly!  I came up with the last two statements.  Hilary can really use co-hosts, so please send some statements her way….

She and I  would LOVE it if you could please help her spread the word about this hop…. So, please tweet, FaceBook share, and add the linky to your post…

This week’s statements:


1. I get my best ideas_____


2. When I am ___ I ___


3. When I have a cold, I like to_____


4. Watching a ____ move, can be ______.


Here are my answers:


1. I get my best ideas when I’m about to fall asleep or when I’m in the middle of a good cleaning session.


2. When I am stressed out or nervous I tend to clean like crazy. It calms me down and lets me sort through things in my mind.


3. When I have a cold, I like to eat hot soup and drink herbal tea.


4. Watching a ceiling fan move, can be very relaxing.

      Ha Ha Ha, believe me I have enough cleaning to do here. My house is never as clean as I would like!!! But if i really need to brainstorm and run out of things here I’ll come on over. 🙂

    this is so funny … cleaning frustrates me!
    And I love your answer about the ceiling fan…. you’re so right!

    • Susi March 16, 2012 at 9:57 am

      Isn’t it? I got the idea when I was sick in bed and trying to take a nap. I always end up watching the spinning blades.

    I do the clean the house thing when I’m stressed, too! Great list this week Susi! Love getting to know everybody better!

    • Susi March 16, 2012 at 9:56 am

      Thank you. I love getting to know everyone better, too and this is one way to do it. 🙂

    I’m not sure why i haven’t had a cold in so long. I think after I quit smoking my body was so happy it decided i would never be sick again, because i literally havent’ been sick at all since 2004

    You are right, watching a ceiling fan is oddly relaxing. i try to follow one blade with my eyes

    • Susi March 16, 2012 at 9:55 am

      You know, I haven’t really been super sick since I stopped smoking 2 years ago either. It’s amazing what bad things cigarettes do to your body and over all health. Yeah for us “quitters” !!! 🙂

    I do my best cleaning when I’m upset about something.

    • Susi March 16, 2012 at 11:51 am

      Isn’t that funny? I think, it’s because when our hands are busy and concentrating on a task you’re less upset about what is bothering you.

    I clean a lot too when I am stressed!

    • Susi March 16, 2012 at 10:56 pm

      It must be a stress relieving thing. 🙂

  • Karen Greenberg March 16, 2012 at 1:04 pm

    Cleaning is great when I’m stressed because it helps me feel like there is something I am in control of. Have a great weekend!

    • Susi March 16, 2012 at 10:56 pm

      I think, that’s why I do it too. Have a great weekend, too.

    I am a big cleaner, it soothes my anal nature plus I am horribly allergic to the animals we have but sure it is paving my way to haven for being so good to my kids 🙂

    and the bed thing, why I don’t keep a notepad next to the bed is beyond me, always have ‘great’ ideas for posts, then fall asleep to never think of them again !

    • Susi March 17, 2012 at 2:32 pm

      I keep asking myself that all the time. But then again I doubt I would actually write anything down. 🙂 And I’m the same way about the cleaning… Life would be so much simpler without the animals around but also much less fun.

  • Nani March 20, 2012 at 2:24 pm

    Cleaning relieves stress for me too!~ We’re all sick I tell you, sick! 🙂

    • Susi March 20, 2012 at 10:58 pm

      I’m with you. My kids do think I’m sick when it comes to cleaning and straightening. 🙂
