Trust Issues

Never ever, ever trust a man to do your business.
Today the carpet cleaner arrived, he arrived an hour and a half late, high as a kite and I knew that he was the type you oughta watch and make sure they get the job done. But since my day had already been postponed I decided that I could turn over the very hard, intense, being nice and trying to get the job done task over to my dear, sweet, lovely hubby since we both share the same desire of a beautiful carpet and getting 'your monies worth' dream... Or so I had thought.
After making it so that I gave the carpet floor 8 hr plus to dry, I come back home to find that my dreams were crushed. I had spent 40$ and wore myself out for over 8 hrs. to come home to a 'mopped' carpet. I know, I know I did say that you can't mop a carpet in my earlier post but I was proven wrong.
Now if you've ever seen a 'mopped' carpet you'd be very devastated with the result. It's a watered carpet with a vacuumed look. The guy didn't move the couches, but hey that's ok it was clean under there.. but he didn't even move the table, it's light I can move it ... in fact I did moved it to one side all he had to do was move it to the other side and clean, not to mention areas that didn't even get touched by his soggy attempts to clean. Devastated I look at my hubby and asked him if he even watched what the guy did. His reply just made my body shudder in anger, he decided to go back to bed and let the man work. Arrgh was I angry. I still am.. but I don't know at who, the carpet cleaner guy or my hubby.
All that to say never entrust your money or carpet to a man, at least not to the men mentioned above. LOL!!

Paranoid about...

Carpets... I hate them!!! I just spent an hour going around my little apartment tackling all the little spots, so that when the carpet 'cleaners' arrive I'd be sure the job was done.
Ugh, I just hate carpets, did I mention that before?? I hate them!! The filthiest invention ever made.. most people mop their floors every night. Can you do that to a carpet?? Not really.
The shivers that climb up my spine just thinking of the filth collected on the base of my carpeted floor, all the bacteria, pests ... ooooo maggots, beneath my carpet floor. Ack, the nightmare.. Mommy I'm scared!!
Ok back to cleaning... A laters!

Some sound adivce!

Cancer update -- Johns Hopkins -- Cancer News from Johns Hopkins:

1. No plastic containers in micro.

2. No water bottles in freezer.

3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.

Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer.

Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.

Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Ma nager at CastleHospital, was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body.

Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc.

He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. cover food with a paper towel instead.

This is an article that should be given to anyone important in your life!

I did my 'good deed' for the day.. heh! So ya'll out there take heed and beware!!!!
I love you guys too much to see you make stupid mistakes that will cost you and others thier lives!
Muah, smoochies, droodles and all!


There is nothing scarier then an in-law you've never met. Oh well, at least for me...
The worries, the concerns, the fears.. Oh my God, someone please make me stop thinking. I get all stressed out, and for what?? Man, I need a brain implant.
I guess it's the added pressure of wanting to get along.. I don't know, really who cares. You do or you don't. I guess it's different with family.
I'm sorta looking forward to it, yet I have this pending doom in the back of my mind.
Well, I'll keep ya posted and let you know how it went.


I need you
I want you
I desire you
I crave you
I yearn for you
I long for you
Idespise you
I hate you
I acknowledge you
I take you
I embrace you
I need you in the morning
I need you in the afternoon
I need your cheer
I need you to make me think clear
there is no substitute for you

COFFEE I'm lost without YOU!
