I think I need a nap.

I'm tired.


I mean to say...it's the middle of the afternoon and I really want to take a nap. However, I have a list of things that I need to get done or nearly done today. Mostly they involve getting things reading for next school year. Specifically they involve getting my carpet in our schoolroom/family room clean.


Monday I rented one of those machines they have at the grocery store and in the time I had allotted I ran the thing over our carpet as many times as I could. However, by the time I was done it was still pulling some pretty dirty water. I quit and hoped for the best. At $28.00 a day I didn't want to rent the machine a second day....besides that I couldn't as I had to make a shopping trek on Tuesday.


I woke up Tuesday morning and saw these awful rusty sort of stains in the high traffic areas of the carpet.


Groooaan....


What to do, what to do?


Buy one of the above. Also known as a Bissell Quicksteamer Model No. 1970. Small but affordable.
I don't need to do the entire floor, just the areas that have that rusty brown stain which hopefully isn't a permanent sort of stain.
Alas...it makes me tired just thinking about it.
Soooooo, instead of doing that today. I ordered our school curriculum. It felt really good to get that task done. It also is a motivator to get the carpet clean and get furniture back into the schoolroom/family room.
Which brings me back to my need for a nap.
Think I'll go take one and see what I can get done after that!
YAAAWWWN....

I had my own steamer for awhile and it was great. You'll love it for quick clean ups.

I tried to get a nap today...then the phone rang. By the time I finished there it was time to get back to work. Oh well. Its almost bedtime.

Having just purchased a Bissell ProHeat 2x, I know where you're coming from with struggling through a "pick one up at the grocery" cleaner. They're horribly heavy and i wasn't very pleased with the rental either.

It's nice to have one i can use so readily, and it does a great job!

Thanks for your visit to my blog, Cindy, and your sweet message.

Years ago we rented one of those machines to clean carpet and we were very disappointed with the results. I'm surprised that they are still there for rental!

The nap?? That sure sounds good to me!

Today we have had rains from Dolly. I love to take naps when it is dark and rainy. In fact, I did!
Nice! :)

I think you deserved a nap. Hope you're rested and rust-free since you posted!
