This week has been exceptionally busy! In addition to the usual working, taking care of Cam, laundry, cooking, etc, I decided I wanted to power wash the patio, steam clean the carpets & get a couple of new plants for our patio.
Yesterday I rushed home from work so I could get a jump on steam cleaning the carpet before the boys got home. I was so pleased with the results; it was awesome to see it almost-like-new again. As we watched Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs after Cam went to bed, I said to Mike, Hmm, wonder how long this rug will stay clean before one of our cats decide to puke on it?
Well, that question was answered this morning when I was getting ready for work & Mike came into the bathroom with a questionable look on his face, saying, Okay, this can be something we both laugh about...
I immediately said, Did the cats puke?? And he replied, Yes! But, that's not the bad part... As soon as I got Demps out of her cage, she started having diarrhea! Well, I found nothing funny about this & immediately burst into tears. Yes, it was a dramatic reaction but I was still waking up, still tired & just hoping that our carpet would have stayed nice for at least 24 hours. Silly me & my wishful thinking. And the oddest part is that Dempsey NEVER has diarrhea! What are the odds? But luckily Mike did a good job of cleaning up the mess & I didn't even notice it when I got home.
And today after work, I came home to mow the lawn, trim the bushes & pot our new plants in the unbearable heat.
Although I am exhausted after my many projects, it's so refreshing to come home to a spruced up house & yard.
And I was even able to muster up that laugh that Mike was hoping for about the carpet mishap from this morning.
I often say to myself as I bustle around, The fun just never ends around this house!
