My Afternoon Activity

Tues 07.13.10 – I woke up this morning to a terrible stench in my apartment and Belle, my brother’s dog, sitting right next to me on the bed licking her nether regions. Smelly Belly. I didn’t want to open my eyes, I didn’t want to get up, or to even investigate the smell. But I did.
I found that Belle had an early morning Poopy Butt Blowout that covered at least 1/4 of the living room. Horrifying.
I borrowed the Bissell ProCleaner 2x carpet steamer from my landlord after returning Poopy McPooperbutt the Carpet Defacer to my brother’s house. Then I spent about 3 hours this afternoon in a zen like trance slowly, ever so slowly, running the carpet cleaner/steamer over small patches of the living room and then re-steaming. It was far better than coding and much more satisfying.
In the end, my furniture sat outside gathering sunshine* with the exception of the bookcases and my drawing table, my carpet came out cleaner than when I moved in, and I got lots of exercise.
Did I mention that the carpet is now cleaner than when I moved in?
* p.s. The Sun, it is shining. The clouds, they have been vanquished.
