The straw that broke the straw that broke the camel's back
Seriously, I am SO tired of 2013. It has been the year of crap for the most part. And today I got more crap. Literally. My dog, who's been ill and is now on antibiotics had a blowout on the carpet. Again, literally. It looked like it blew out of a cannon instead of his backside. I SO do NOT blame the dog. He's my bud, and he's sick and I wasn't available to get him out when it happened, so what's a dog to do? It was an accident. One I sincerely WISH could have either not happened or at least happened on the linoleum. But, several bottles of carpet cleaner and not one, but 3 shampooings has finally convinced me that the carpet is clean again. In fact, I've created a new problem. I only shampooed about 1/3 of the carpet in the living room, because this is where the mess was. As I am finding, I now have a "clean spot" where I shampooed, making the rest of the carpet look like crap. Joy. After this is completely dry I will go back and do the rest. I just don't have it in me to do it all today.
I'm feeling a scream coming on.
