I’m pretty sure I’ve whined before about the state of my carpet. I had it installed on the stairs and upstairs BEFORE I got the dogs. It was off-white. For the last few months I have wavered between cleaning it and just replacing it with bamboo flooring.
I decided for now to have a go at cleaning it. So, a few days ago my younger son stopped by and helped me move everything out of my bedroom and into the guest room/office/junk room. So, you can barely walk in the gr/o/jr. I have a carpet shampooer that weighs about 40 pounds, but does a pretty credible job of cleaning. So, we shampooed the carpet. Then I used the Pet Spotbot on pesky stains — and am checking out a few more this morning. I plan to re-shampoo today and Brock will help me move the big stuff back into the bedroom tomorrow.
The real issue, however, is that I am exhausted! The guest room has only a twin bed in which I’ve been sleeping. Chase is not here, but Kip and Inca sure are. I told them they had to sleep on dog beds on the floor, but as soon as I fall asleep, they are on the bed — someone has to check to make sure I’m still breathing. So, I’ve not had an entire night’s sleep since Monday night. A twin bed does not work for a grown human and two cardis. This job MUST be finished today.
