Love/Hate Relatioships and the power of the click!

I have a love/hate relationship with my wood floors. Most of y'all know I just moved into the cutest new house in the woods of NC. I live in heaven. Not even kidding. I do. However, for the very first time in my life, I have all wood floors. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way they look. It is easy to decorate against the warm tones, and for the most part I can keep them fairly clean...Ok, I lie. I haven't really even figured out how to keep them clean. I am perplexed and frustrated.

When I first moved in, and everything was spotless, it seemed adequate to sweep as necessary. I'd quickly wipe up any spill as it happened and that was that. Please keep in mind I have never lived anywhere that didn't have wall to wall carpeting. I did purchase some entrance rugs, a rug for in front of the coffee table, the sink, and I got a beautiful housewarming gift from Marla of a rug in the bedroom, however, the rest of the house is entirely wood floor. So...herein lies the issue...

I have 2 cats. They are the cutest cats in the entire world. I know every person who owns a pet says the same thing, but I am not even lying. My cats are the cutest. Since I can't figure out how to upload a photo you will have to take my word for it. Ok, so the cats are pretty wild. They run in and out of their cat box, they rip out each others hair, they tear up toilet paper, they knock anything off of any flat surface that is around. They tear down the shower curtain. I can sweep, vacuum, mop, and cry, but I can't keep my beautiful wood floor clean. I guess I could if it was all I had to do, but since it isn't I don't know what to do! WAAAAAAH!

I was just wondering if any of you had any suggestions short of giving the cats away. That isn't gonna happen. Remember, they are the cutest cats in the world!

On a lighter note...I've found a few new blogs that I adore. I'm going to link here and y'all can view as you wish. I don't even know how I found them except that I clicked, and clicked, and clicked and then, somewhere in about the 1,345th click I was hooked. I'm sure you know how that goes. I gotta love the power of the click! Here you go:

The funny thing is I don't knit (I crochet) and I don't run! HAHAHAAH! I'm sorry, it just cracks me up that the 2 blogs I am recommending are about things I don't do. Please don't let that discourage you from reading either blog.

Ok, I'm gonna go hang with my fiance. OMG, I just said fiance! You know what that means, that means I am really, truly getting married. I need a girlfriend scream, are you ready???!?! OMG! ACK!

I love you all!
