Rainy days and Mondays always get me down............

okay, not really but it is Monday and it is raining right now. It isn't too terribly cold out.......36º which ain't bad for the end of November in Michigan. I remember lots of years in the past that we had more than 5 inches of snow on the ground already and my back was sore from shoveling!

My back is sore.......but not from shoveling. I decided today that I couldn't stand to look at my dirty carpeting one more day, so I broke out the shampoo attachment to my vacuum (which promises to give a professional looking cleaning job) and started cleaning the carpeting in the downstairs eating area. I still need to do the family room, computer room, hallway and entry room! I should have started much earlier than I did.....what was I thinking! I also did the chair that the dog has claimed as hers in the hopes that it would look better.

It isn't dry yet so I am unable to see the end results. All I can tell you right now is that the 'dog' is plenty pissed at me! She acts as if she runs this place!

Well, I'm done! Not in done/finished.......just done because I managed to break the attachment! Spilled water everywhere......big huge mess! Not a happy camper. Today seems like Murphy's Law. Finally have the whole mess cleaned up and the carpet as dry as I can possibly get it. If hub were home he could have gotten the shop vac down from where he stores it in the rafters in the garage. I can't reach it. I can't even get the ladder off the wall to reach it. And even if I could, it is too heavy and I would either drop it on my car or my head!

First thing in the morning I will be going to the store and renting one so I can finish the job!

It was rainy here on Monday too. 36 degrees is cold to me but I do get cold easily. Plus, I'm from the humid south.

Gosh it is frustrating when the job you set out to do ends up in disarray with more work. I hope today you were able to finish up without much strife.

Take care of that back! If you were here, I would bake you a cake.
