Rambling and what not.

Hi Guys,

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.

I could try scaring the hell out of you until you finish the book.

SO glad the bump is just your skull!
We bought a steam vac for our carpet because we kept getting price quotes that were high, so we just bought one. Lucky you getting it that cheap!

That lump in your throat sounds like allergies!

And we need to steam clean our couch. But we're going to rent one from the hardware store and do it ourselves. Not sure how much it costs to rent though.
