Resolution and Cleanliness.


Yesterday was plain awful.  (You can say that again.)  Yesterday was plain awful!

Ten points to whomever can figure out where that is from.

Things are working out, and I’m sure they will be fine.  They always seem to be.  But changes are going to be made on multiple fronts.  I’d love to get into more detail, but it’s not my problem, so it’s not my place to say.  Since my blog is no longer exactly ‘private’, I can’t really go into things that I otherwise might have.

Today, I got my carpets cleaned.  The fellow was a good ol’ boy, incredibly polite and proper, but he did a great job.  He called me “Miss Mandy” the whole time he was here.  And he prefaced every single statement he made with, “Now, I’m gonna be honest with you Miss Mandy, now…”  Evidently this guy never lies.

He talked about the carpet damage we have at the edges of our cream colored carpet where it’s all turning black.  He said it was soot from our air ventilation system.  We had asked the heating and air people when they came out if they knew what was causing it, and they told us that we “burn too many candles.”  When I told the carpet dude this, he laughed so hard he had to sit down for a minute.

“Now, I’m gonna be honest with you Miss Mandy, now there is NO possible way candles could do that much damage to your carpet.  No ma’am.  There’s no way.  Now, I’m gonna be honest with you, now you just need to get those vents cleaned out.  That will fix your problem right there, Miss Mandy.”

He was almost too country to be real.  But he did a great job.  The carpet looks excellent.  Ronan and I are hanging out in the loft for the next 2-3 hours while it dries… and then we’re going to go down and play!  On our awesome, newly cleaned carpet.

If you ever want to know who you should use for your carpet cleaning, I highly recommend ChemDry Express.  They came highly recommended to me as well.  The price was reasonable, the job was done in about an hour, and the quality of the work was excellent!

I haven’t posted any pictures in a while.  I’ll get on that later today.  I’ve got a couple sweet ones.  Play date later today with my favorite ladies!
