Sunday was my birthday and i'm sick from it. And it's not from the way you think it is. My sister dropped off her steam vac so i could clean the carpet my cat has been systematically destroying for the past few years. between the dirt and the chemicals my lungs/sinuses are kinda shot right now. But I see a rug again! I'll have to give it one more run thru and work on a few spots but the worse is over. i've never been a great housekeeper- but the past two years i've been very bad. Between work, my father's death, my mother's cancer and subsequent death something had to give- so it became a very messy apartment, eating too much and few updates for my comics. but now, i'm feelin better. amazing -how a clean rug perks you up- despite the current hacking i'm doing right now.
