Well I'm back. Don't worry, I'm not dying. Last week I had some health scares (swollen lymph node) but it went away- then I found a lump on my head, which apparently, according to the doctor, is just a part of my skull? Anyway, needless to say I was a little worried for a while there. Maybe if I get shot in the head one day this hard lump will save my life? You never know.
Unfortunately for the past week I've had this feeling that I have something stuck in my throat...it goes and comes. I'm beginning to think it's allergy related. Very bizarre. In other random news, I found a deal and I'm getting the carpet downstairs professionally cleaned for $60. Which is good, considering I called other places and their min. charge was $150...and that was supposed to be a deal? Granted, the carpets are perfectly dry when it's finished but...I think I can handle some wet carpet if it's going to be almost 100 bucks cheaper.
Why the steam cleaning, you ask? I have my in-laws (the first set...my husband's parents are divorced) coming to visit from England on September 5 and they'll be here until Sept. 21. But that's not the only reason I'm doing it...this is something we haven't had done ever...since moving in almost 3 years ago. So I figured...okay, this carpet is gross. It's time. Unfortunately, I'm too cheap to get the upstairs and staircase done. But we have a crappy old steamer...I'll use that myself. But the mess downstairs...our crappy little steam machine won't even touch that.
I guess that's what happens when you have 2 kids under 5 and a dog...and a husband who continually tracks grass and dirt in the house because he forgets to take his shoes off...but that's besides the point.
God, look at me...I'm rambling because I haven't blogged in so long. I still need to finish my book. I feel so close, but yet so far. I took a week off writing, then the "doctor week," and now it's simply a matter of getting back in the swing of things again.
Anyone have any good Inspiration? I'm out.
