Not in the desert but in the mountains there is nothing between the ranch and the first little town. It's a trade off for sure not convenient but a really great place to live. When I want specialty items I order on the internet and have it sent to me we do get UPS and Fed Ex everyday. I can also buy things if I need to from the kitchen at HQ during fishing and hunting seasons. I also say if you really want to help come home and help me unload and put away.

I guess I don't enjoy the daily chores but I do love when I am home alone with the music on and cleaning, really cleaning the whole house.

I love cleaning and organizing - I wish I had more time to do it - I have often thought of starting my own cleaning business -

I hate cleaning the house but I love alphabetized spices and an organized kitchen.........the rest of the place I leave to Ludmilla............she has her own routine and doesn't speak a word of English and I don't speak Russian though we sometimes use my Russian/English dictionary for the more complicated discussions.....for most situations I understand her perfectly........known her for 3 years and she's a dear "older" sister...........

I don't know how I missed your posting..........man, I thought I was the only weird one walking around here .............hahaha

I hate to be the one to point this out Debs, but you're not supposed to do it out in public!!!

Just teasing, of course!
