Today I cleaned the carpet. Don’t let anybody tell you "oh, it’s really easy" – huhh. Between the monster machine, the miles of cord (which have to be plugged in at two different places being sure they’re on separate circuits, the huge twisty and not-very-flexible hose…. well, I’m just not sure it was worth it. Especially given the fact I stand to gain nothing on the sale of this house – in fact, I’ll probably lose my good credit and who knows what else… but that’s a post for a day when I don’t still have to load that monster steamer into my car and take it back….
