Chaos Reigned for a Day

I don't usually share photos of my house unless it's in "apple pie" order (that's an old expression that I have never understood.), but I looked at all the living room furniture piled into my kitchen for the day and decided that I would show you, in the spirit of "keeping it real", the mess I had to live with today just so I could have clean carpets. We couldn't even get to the kitchen sink....
After the carpet cleaning guy left, we spent the day OUTSIDE with the dogs because we have carpet in the living room, hallway and both bedrooms and we had to let all this carpeting dry before we could walk on it or move the furniture back in. In addition to moving furniture I pruned bushes, picked some weeds and planted my gourd seedlings. The Prospector and I took turns entertaining the Pupster and taking trips to town..., once to Lowes for decorative bark, once to Taco Bell and Staples.

The carpet is so clean and it smells sooooo good. It's fluffy again and all the spots are gone. I wanted to get new carpet or wood flooring but when it cleans up this well I guess I can wait for a while longer. So..., to celebrate not spending all that money on new carpeting I went down to Staples and bought Photoshop Element 7. It was way cheaper that new carpet and now all I have to do is figure out how to use it. It says It can eliminate "unwanted elements" like power lines and people that didn't say"cheese" etc..., and add wings to my goats if I want too. Wow! Sounds like magical stuff. I wonder if it will clean the dishes that have accumulated all day out in my laundry sink. Probably not...
